"The MPS was designed as a flat and compact knife that was purposely designed to fit in the sheath on the United States Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Army pilot survival vest. The blade is a smaller version of the MPK and the same versatile blade belly makes it a superior utility and survival model. The skeletonized handle allows this knife to fulfill requirements where ultimate lightweight and thin profiles are demanded. Regardless of whether you pilot an F/A-18 strike fighter from an aircraft carrier, a C130 aircraft for AFSOC or an Apache helicopter, this knife is always out of your way but always ready for immediate and intense use. Military and law enforcement personnel like the MPS because of its durability, lightweight and overall tough characteristics. It works equally well in desert or arctic conditions due to the specialized titanium construction ensuring that it will not break in subzero weather as steel does. Military personnel choose it because it makes an excellent all purpose work knife. They have told us that the MPS is the perfect utility knife and is widely used in SERE and many other applications." This MPS by Mission Knives has a bead blasted titanium blade with partially serrated edge and false top edge, .253" blade stock and 1.396" blade depth, full tang construction. Comes with black kydex sheath. Scuffs and scratches are visible on the blade and handle otherwise the knife is in excellent condition.
