The rarest and arguably the most desirable Mark V knife is presented here, the anti-magnetic Fischer Spring! These knives were used by divers working around underwater mines set to explode via magnetic attraction – like a ship’s hull. Made of beryllium, brass, and wood, these were made in limited numbers by Fischer Spring. With their distinctive gold looking blades, these are the holy grail of Mark V knife collecting!

This example appears to have never been used. The brass hardware, wood handle, and beryllium blade are in like new condition. A leather belt loop on the brass sheath is also in excellent condition. Fischer Spring N.Y. and the mil-spec number C-713051 are clearly stamped on one side of the beryllium blade. Do not pass up this rare opportunity to own the most difficult and desirable Mark V knives!
