This is the classic World War 2 era US Navy dive knife made by Morse Diving Equipment in Boston, MA. This example is clearly stamped on the brass sheath MFG’D BY MORSE DIVING EQUIPMENT CO. INC. BOSTON, MASS U.S.A. This is the knife style synonymous with use along with the Mark V diving helmet. The stainless steel blade shows some slight age from light use. The wood handle also features signs of use. Overall, a great knife to display by itself or next to a Mark V helmet. Please review the photos for condition specifics.
