Buck Knives
Special Warfare Operator First Class (SEAL) Matthew J. Leathers was a highly decorated combat veteran with numerous awards. which include the Bronze Star, Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, Afghanistan Campaign Medal, Iraq Campaign Medal and Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal.
Matt enjoyed running 100-mile ultra-marathons and Open Ocean Free Diving. It was during a free diving exercise that he was lost at sea in February 2013. The phrase, Matt Would Go, was coined by leadership of Seal Delivery Vehicle Team One in recognition of his courage and unflinching devotion to duty.
While much of what Matt did during his nine years as a US Navy SEAL must remain secret, his fellow SEALS have honored his memory with these simple words: MATT WOULD GO. His father, Tim Leathers, has created the Matt Would Go company as a tribute to the dauntless courage of his son and his fellow SEALS around the globe.

During his nine years with the US Navy SEALS, Matthew, known as a perfectionist, designed a knife that held up to his high standards. He used steel from the coil spring of a scrapped Humvee and built his own forge from an old mail box. Tim has entered into an agreement with Buck Knives to make the exact knife Matt designed, and Buck Knives is proud to bring this to the market.

5 out of 5
Pros: Weight, Handle Material, Blade Material
Cons: None
Great all around knife
This has become my favorite fixed blade, as it is my go-to edc knife. The sheath carries the knife high on my left side, allowing it to hide well under a shirt or jacket. The micarta grip works very well in my hand, especially when having to manipulate the knife/change angle of cut. I can quickly move the knife from left to right side, allowing cross-draw carry when in a car. On the trail, it works well with my pack frame waist strap, allowing me to quickly move it from belt to pack frame strap. It will cut. It will kill. It will handle batoning. It will shave and feather. The blade dresses up quick and easy with a small stone. It is not perfect, just a great all around edc.

Buck 245 Matt Would Go Fixed 4" Carbon Steel Blade, Camo Micarta Handl
I bought these to have an excellent General purpose knife.The looks and the feel as well as the expected quality of Buck Knife. I was not disappointed in any way.There are no details that I did not have before I purchased the knives that I would liked to have had before purchase.The initial review of the knife on the Buck web site (as I recall) showed the knife in and out of a leather scabbard. It did not come with one. I guess that as I finally figure out the one that did come with the knife all will be better.
