The Mako Titanium Knife incorporates a multi-function blade with a highly-durable cutting edge. It is made from hardened titanium, titanium being the ultimate material for light weight, long life and corrosion free performance.
Titanium is a highly resistant metal alloy that does not rust yet is stronger than traditional steel. Traditional steel dive knives require continual maintenance of cleaning and coating in silicone to avoid rusting, Titanium alloy knives such as this one don't need this, although you should still wash and clean with fresh water after diving and dry normally to ensure longevity.
The plastic sheath has a one handed push button locking release to prevent accidental lose of the knife. The sheath can be fitted to the leg using the quick release rubber straps or to a BCD using the supplied nuts, plastic heads and bolts.

|Line Cutting Notch|
?Some knife blades include a specially designed notch for cutting most forms of line or thin rope. Line is much easier to cut in a controlled manner when using the notch instead of slicing the line or rope using the sharpened edge of the blade. Close.
?The overal length of the knife, cutter or shears. This length is measured with the sheath in place. Close.
?A serrated edge makes it easier to cut through some materials, acting more like a saw than a straight blade. Close.
?Sheaths are typcially made from either plastic or webbing. Plastic housings offer impact protection and will incorporate a locking mechanism to help prevent accidental lose of the knife. Webbing sheaths are normally supplied with smaller, low profile back-up knifes and cutter and usually use a velcro tab to retain the knife or cutter. Close.
?Standard knife blades are usually available with either a point or blunt tip. A pointed tip holds more a risk of accidental punction of other equipment or injury. A blunt tip reduces the risk of accident damage and is also handy as a lever if you need to pry something open. Close.
