The GLOCK Field Knife has been one of the longest lived produced produced by the GLOCK company. While GLOCK has achieved worldwide fame from the performance of the GLOCK pistol, years before the first pistol would be made soldiers were using the GLOCK Field Knife in combat. This modern fighting knife gave GLOCK the opportunity to learn which polymers were strong and would meet the needs of the Austrian military.
There are two variations of the GLOCK Field Knife. The first version of the GLOCK Field Knife is known as the Model 78, which has the shape and style of the classic military field knife. The second version of the GLOCK Field Knife is the Model 81, which took the original Model 78 and added saw-teeth to the back of the blade to give soldiers more of a survival knife. These two versions of the GLOCK Field Knife both saw use with the Austrian army and were adopted by various other nations who saw the value in these combat proven field knives.

Great for the truck or store with camping gear!
This is a high quality blade. The spine serrations actually cut wood very effectively. Important for a field survival knife. You can cut down saplings to build shelter poles, etc. Nice ballance durabe holds an edge. and can be used as a throwing knife.
