does the blade extend thru the handle?
Sherwood P I believe that it does, on the end of the handle there is a HEX type screw that you can remove which allows you to remove the blade completely from the handle. I will say this, I have had this knife with me on every dive, from Doria, U-869, to the shallow stuff since I bought it back in 2007 and it has never once corroded or let me down in anyway! It is a very well built, sturdy knife that should last you many years. Hope this helps.
STEVE B Extend through the handle? I take it that you mean the top of the knife, and the answer to that would be - no.
WILLIAM T Yes it does. Great knife
MICHAEL K Yes blade is bolted on from the tail of the handle. I have had this knife for 2 years now 60 + - dives nice knife stayed sharp no corrosion.
