We've been quite taken with this deep sea, hard hat divers knife for some time and recently had the chance to acquire a near perfect original. Used up to Vietnam by UDT and SEALS it’s a real deep sea treasure. We've constructed our replica to match the original in every way from original spec materials of high carbon steel, wood and brass to construction method, right down to the fit and finish. This is a real beauty and ideal for any collector of military or maritime items. Includes leather strap as many were originally issued.
Specs can vary slightly from knife to knife.

In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
