Presented is a seldom seen dive knife which appears to be an early example from Russia. One side at the base of the blade is a triangle with what appears to be the number 11 with OTK below it. Cyrillic letters are below the triangle. The knife features a relatively narrow blade measuring 0.9375” with a length of 7.75”. The overall length is 13.125” and weighing 3 pounds ½ ounce. The end of the brass sheath has what appears to be an extension made into it at the factory. Overall, this is an impressive knife with a distinctly different visual appearance from similar styles. International bidders are advised that some countries do not allow the importation of knives.
