Product Description

A very nice near mint example of a US Diver’s Mark V dive knife made by the renowned American company Morse Diving Company of Boston, MA.

Morse produced this Mark V knife between 1970 and 1998, when the company name was changed. The scabbard is clearly marked in two lines: MORSE DIVING EQUIP. CO. / ROCKLAND, MA 02370. A Mark V diving helmet logo is located in the middle of the words, in between Equip. Co, and Rockland.

The knife screws into the top 1/2" of the polished cast brass sheath using Acme threads which not only hold it securely in the sheath but also permit it to be easily and quickly removed. The upper edge of the knife blade is cut with saw teeth while the lower edge is a conventional knife edge.

The blade of the knife is very good and retains most of its original polish, but has been sharpened to a very keen edge and the serrated spine is in excellent and untouched condition. The maple wood handle has minimal amount of wear. The heavy brass scabbard is in wonderful condition with a lovely mellow, polished, bronze patina. The scabbard is crisply and clearly marked, as noted above. It has the name of the commercial diver ‘James M. Davies’ to whom it was presented, lightly engraved (would be easy to polish out).

Size: 34 cm (13 3/8 inches)
