The MCMK (MK1) EOD Knife, designed for Mine Countermeasures features a copper beryllium blade ground by Ernest Emerson with a chisel-ground cutting edge for added strength and ease of sharpening, as well as a chisel-ground flat front edge. Additionally, square-saw teeth have been added to the top edge for tearing through soft materials.
Malterra and Emerson Knives Forging Ahead
The latest collaboration from Malterra™ and Emerson Knives Inc., the number one hard-use knife manufacturer in the country, is one bad piece of….copper beryllium. We wanted to say ‘steel,’ but that would scare the shit out of all our friends over at Navy EOD, and considering we made this for them, we’ll stick to their spec.
Copper beryllium is a non-magnetic, non-sparking, high strength metal that can hold an edge: making it the perfect material for a knife for the Navy’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal units. Ernie Emerson’s command of form and function when it comes to knife design is unrivaled, and his knives have long been the choice of professionals throughout the military, special operations community and law enforcement.
