Presented is a newly issued flat sheath
A. Schrader Navy dive knife that predated the MK V dive knifes that are still in service today. A. Schrader’s & Sons,
Inc., of Brooklyn, NY was one of the the first two makers of Navy MK V helmets and diving knives that came before
them.

The original flat sheath design were introduced in
1912 and were Navy standard issue as well as being used by commercial divers. They saw service until 1929 when
the Navy adopted the MK V Diving System knife.  This knife was made to the same plans and quality as the original. It
comes in a fitted high gloss Mahogany presentation box with gold lettering, and fitted grey foam liner.

MARKINGS: The sheath is
unmarked, and the blade is engraved A. Schrader’s Son Inc.

The case is imprinted:  A COMMEMORATIVE A. Schrader’s Son Inc.
US Navy/Commercial Friction Knife On the Brass
Plate:
LIMITED EDITION


The knife
is designed to slide into the sheath with a friction spring holding it in place. This allows it to be easily and quickly removed.
The upper edge of the knife blade is flat while the lower edge has a very sharp knife edge.
A rare A. Schrader dive knife for the collector or for use.
