I was not aware that there were other manufacturers capable of turning out the large number of knives that the Military orders.
The Schrade comes in a hard plastic sheath marked: "MK 3 MOD 0 USN". Is "MK (Mark) 3" the Military name for this pattern ? A bit odd because it so closely resembles the M-7S. The knife is only marked with "Schrade USA" but it fits the MK 3 marked sheath perfectly so i believe they do go together.
