M11 Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Knife by Ontario Knife Comany®
Blade Material 420 Modified Stainless Steel
Designed specifically for the United States Army
The M11 Explosive Ordnance Disposal knife was designed specifically for the United States Army, and to say the situation it was designed for is extreme is an understatement. With a 7 inch, 420 modified steel blade and modified Kraton® handle, this is a specialized knife you can reach for when failure is not an option. The EOD is manufactured in the U.S.A.
Modified Kraton® Handle
The green handle on the M11 is made from Modified Krayton®. The handle is oval in shape and grooved for a better grip even if wet. The handle extents to a full tang providing great protection from the blade, and a solid pommel is designed for hammering. Krayton® is a high performance elastomer, and offers many of the properties of natural rubber such as high traction but with increased resistance to heat, weathering and chemicals.
420 Modified Stainless Steel Blade
The fixed blade on the EOD is made from 420 Modified Stainless Steel and has a black zinc phosphate finish. With a hardness of 53-57 HRC the blade grind has a full flat taper with secondary flat bevel. 420 modified stainless steel is an easy to sharpen steel used in knife making. The spine on the blade features a saw that is designed to cut through in the way items. The blade has a keyhole through the blade that fits the lug on the sheath creating a field use wire cutter
Green Glass Reinforced Nylon Sheath
Included with the Explosive Ordnance Disposal knife is a green Glass Reinforced Nylon sheath. The sheath features a clip allowing the sheath to be quicly uncliped from the belt attachement. The disattached sheath clips onto the blade of the M11 forming a field wire cutter. When safely placed in the sheath the knife is held in place with a nylon button strap around the handle.
