The Marines are known to excel with all weapon; “one mind many weapons”… and especially when it comes to their their hand to hand combat skills. Throughout history and on every battlefield Marines have carried well known blades, the most famous being the KA-BAR.
Recently, the Marine combat knife, (still available), was replaced by the greatest bayonet ever designed for modern warfare. The Marine Corps bayonet has everything a combat/fighting knife needs but remains a bayonet with the short comings of a bayonet guard and handle.
Nobody can predict where the next conflict will be or what will be the conditions but one thing is for sure, not all Marines need bayonets but all Marines need a good reliable combat knife. The 21st century Marine Combat knife is that knife. We took the best attributes of the new Marine Corps bayonet (size, length, blade geometry), improved them, and combined them with the best features we could find in a fighting knife handle (size, length, ergonomy).
The 21st century Marine Combat knife means business and its attitude screams MARINE CORPS. 100% handmade in the USA by Robert Newton.
