The US Marine Corps Grunt Folding Military Knife has a minimalist size but doesn't lack in efficiency; perfect for those who want something a little easier to carry, but not sacrifice performance. Features the newly designed and patented C2 assisted, fast opening blade method with thumb stud option. The ultra high grade stainless steel 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. The handle material is a synthetic with rubber inserts which is virtually indestructible and does not conduct heat or cold. Although USMC approved, this weapon is not standard government issue. The blade measures about 3 3/4-inches long folded and 6 1/2-inches long when opened.
