The Battalion Master knife has a handsome and masculine industrial look with unique placement of USMC logo. Features aircraft grade aluminum scales and rubber inserts with a semi-serrated blade; perfect for field ops. Features the newly designed and patented C2™ assisted, fast opening blade method with thumb stud option and trigger opening options. The ultra high grade stainless steel 8Cr13MoV takes and holds an extreme, razor sharp edge for long periods and through abuse seen in the field. It is almost completely maintenance free and highly resistant to corrosive elements and salt water. Although USMC approved, these are not standard government issue.
