This is a quality specialist Dive knife but unbranded. Similar quality knives sell at dive shops for $70.

It features a 420 surgical grade stainless steel blade, with a top line hook and top serrations.

Blade: 5″ (12.5cm) long by 1″ (2.5cm) wide 3.8mm thick with top line hook and top serrations. Hollow ground for ease of sharpening and sharpness.

The blade is strong and stiff and very sharp.

Handle: 4.5″ (11cm) long – rubber/silicon with a stainless finger guard and pommel. The handle has a catch that secures it firmly in the sheath. Very nice to hold and a ribbed non-slip grip.

Sheath: Moulded ABS with a catch that secures the knife – has belt loop as well as two leg straps.

What makes these knives superb is the steel used. Many knives are made with inferior grades of stainless steel. “Stainless” is a large group of steel alloys – many entirely unsuitable for blade use.

Grade 420 is capable of attaining very good hardness, sharpness and wear resistance of the stainless alloys. Its very high carbon content is responsible for these characteristics along with superior heat treatment. Of course this is also more expensive – you get what you pay for.

However I buy directly from the factory. Therefore the price is unbelievable for a knife of this quality. A no nonsense knife, high quality, low price. Gosh it must be Christmas!
