Previously, there was not a commercially available stainless steel which had a combination of being hard enough to maintain an edge, yet stiff enough for prying, and did not rust in salt water.
Our constant quest for perfection lead us to develop a special alloy that combines the best qualities of 316 and 420 steel to produce corrosion resistant blades with great strength and sharpness. We now do custom mill runs of our proprietary steel formula, which not only has different alloy content but also a different heat treating process than other dive knives, making UK knives unique in their performance.
Small, lightweight and designed to fit your style
Quality knives are always built with a blade that runs the full length of the knife. This gives you increased strength when using it for prying tasks. Some knives have the blade stop at the handle, resulting in a weak point and most often, a broken knife.
BONUS: All UK knives are easy to disassemble for cleaning without the use of tools!
FULL FEATURED BLADE
The Fusilier blade has two edges: A serrated edge that quickly cuts through rope and a smooth edge for slicing. The blunt tip is ideal for prying small objects and the line cutter is perfect for cutting fishing line.
