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.
