Johan:

 

I don't recognize those items other than to say that they are US Navy in origin. That Bureau of Ordnance drawing number does not show up in any of my limited Navy materials.

 

Regards,

Charlie

I found a listing for them on a web site. The list is dated 2005. They are used to cut open dud artillery rounds, or for any other item that needs cut open with a demo charge.

These are also seen in the Special Operations Forces (SOF) Demo kit. If looked at from the end, the channels should have the shape of a W. Theses metal channels are packet with C-4 explosive to create linear shape charge. The size of channel used depends on the size of the linear shape charge require for the size of the target. Alot of common SOF equipment now is labled with the MARK (MK) nomenclature.
