The Glock knife is a military field knife product line designed and produced by Glock Ges.m.b.H., located in Deutsch-Wagram, Austria. It can also be used as a bayonet, by engaging a socket in the pommel (covered by a plastic cap) into a bayonet adapter that can be fitted to the Steyr AUG rifle.
Both knives have clip point blades made of SAE 1095 spring steel with a hardness of 55 HRC and are phosphate-treated. Spring steel offers a high yield strength for good impact resistance and flexibility but low corrosion resistance.
Glock currently manufactures two models of knives:
- The Field Knife 78 (Feldmesser 78), which is a classic field knife, with a 165-millimetre (6.5 in) blade, 290-millimetre (11 in) overall length and weighs 206 g (7.3 oz).
- The Survival Knife 81 (Feldmesser 81), which has the same overall dimensions as the Field Knife 78 with the addition of saw-teeth on the back of the blade and weighs 202 g (7.1 oz).
