Marine Combat Knife
Updated tactical fighter knives were originally designed at the request of the USMC during World War II, because the combat knives issued to them were older and did not meet the demands of the modern assignments. The common practice was to give each soldier two knives, one folding pocket knife for utility, and a larger fixed blade for hand to hand combat. The Marines wanted to combine those two needs into one tactical knife. This goal shaped the iconic marine fighting knife into the one seen in war movies and history museums, and that continues to hold its own in the trenches with ever advancing tactical weapons and military technology. The stacked leather handle and clip point blade on this 12.5" USMC fixed blade are taken from the most popular combat knives continuously issued to soldiers up to the present day.
The leather sheath wears the insignia of the specific branch of armed forces the soldier is in, and this military fighting knife has the Marine Corps globe and eagle imprinted on the front where the blade enters its leather scabbard. The stitched carrying cover can be worn on your side with the belt loop, or keep the knife at home amongst your other service memorabilia. The 7-inch long blade comes sharpened, with the option to create a finer edge on the 420 stainless steel blade if you need. This steel has the same heat treated coating as those infamous hunting knives, giving it a black finish to reduce sun reflection and improve stealth. Standard issue fighter knives were often kept by servicemen and passed down through the generations. This leather handle knife can be your own standard issue, fully functional survival weapon! Who knows, maybe it will become a relic of your own hard-won battles someday.
Since 1942, tough and practical clip-point blades like this have been in service to our countrymen among many others. Now you can feel like you own a piece of the history of the United States Armed Forces, no matter what branch, and no matter what function you may need from your survival knife. This combat blade was designed to do it all, and the modern materials make sure that it can take the heat and still be there for the next mission. It will make a memorable gift to a retired veteran or active duty member, since it carries the motto of "Always Loyal" with it through the commemorative emblem of the USMC.
