Originally introduced during the 1960's / Vietnam era, the M-2205 (NSN #5110-00-162-2205) is the current issue and still widely in use by US military as well as NATO forces around the world.  The nickname "M-2205" is simply an abbreviation of its longer, government issued stock number.

This knife is extremely sharp right out of the package. It has a proper weight and "feel" to it, the blade and tool action is what we call "tight and right," yielding a firm snap with no wobble or play.   

M-2205 makes a fine everyday carry (EDC) or utility knife aboard the ship, with its all-stainless construction and assortment of tools. It does well in the galley, chart table or tool bag, and it can worn on the belt if used with the sheath. 

Nicely packaged for gift-giving or presentation. Includes low profile belt sheath, care instructions and warranty card.  Also available fully rigged up with our deluxe knife lanyard (see last photo), which includes the rope, snapshackle and split ring.
