Heavy Cover Mini Mess Kit Knives

The Mini Mess Kit Knives that Heavy Cover has been teasing us with for months are now available. These knives are draw inspiration from the iconic US Military Mess Kit Knife, a design more than 100 years old.

The knife features a 2.5″ D2 tool steel blade with a nitride finish. It comes with a kydex sheath complete with deep carry clip.

This first run of knives is available with your choice of Ti or OD Green micarta scales is extremely limited. Only 20 of each scale option were produced. They likely will not last long.

You likely know Heavy Cover Inc as the makers of a titanium mess kit based on the size and shape of a USGI canteen. It is a thoroughly modern homage to a classic design. Is it any wonder that, when developing a a knife to serve as a companion to that same mess kit, they took inspiration from another classic USGI mess kit item?

Heavy Cover Inc. has been working with Dauntless MFG to develop a modernized version of the USGI 1945 WW2 Mess Kit Knife. The Heavy Cover version of this knife will boast a D2 steel blade with a black nitride finish. The scales are machined from aluminum and will be hard anodized on the production knife.
