BLADE: 5160 Carbon HANDLE: Custom multi-color Micarta CARRY SYSTEM: Kydex Sheath, Black
The 245 MWG represents a partnership between Buck Knives and Tim Leathers, father of fallen Navy SEAL, Matt Leathers. Designed and created with Navy SEALS in mind, the MWG is a tough and durable tool with a well-balanced construction. As a highly decorated SEAL, Matt Leathers had a reputation for never turning down a mission. In fact, his fellow SEALS knew that when a call to duty arrived, “Matt would go.” So came the name that honors SEAL member # 245, one of the top Operators in the SEAL organization who lost his life in a training accident in 2013. Made in the USA.

Commonly known as spring steel, 5160 has excellent shock absorbing properties making it resilient to shattering and extremely durable as a knife steel. We harden to 57-58 Rc to maximize its performance.
This blade is full bellied with a strong, thick point for heavier tasks. It can also be used as a general work knife. The top of the blade drops down toward the tip, which minimizes accidental puncturing while skinning. The drop point blade is strong and very versatile.
