Hi Steve,


I received my model 2205 military scout knives today in the mail, and I am impressed! I purchased these as souvenirs of a trip I made to Normandy this year to locate my grandmother's brother's grave, he was killed in action August 27, 1944. He carried a scout knife when he was killed, which had come down to me, so I thought a scout knife that was year marked for this year would be an appropriate souvenir. I will display one of the knives along with his scout knife.


The second knife I will carry. I think that the adjustments made to the Mil-k 818 in your 2205 version are in fact pretty nice improvements. The shorter slightly narrower screwdriver allows for a straight blade that fits standard phillips head screws as well as slotted head AND unlike some other versions out there, you guys ground the tip to fit standard screws! It is also nice to have proper spring tension on a knife, especially one that is so clearly a real workhorse, thanks for paying attention to details.


I had a Forest Master as a kid (still have it around here somewhere) and an Old Cutler Barlow that I carried for years. It is nice to have the opportunity to have a Colonial knife riding in my pocket again.


Many Thanks,


Richard Rosenthal


Hi Steve:


Sorry, I have been confusing about this.  I sent you guys an older (Ive had it for a while now, but only used it for rafting and such) red colonial rescue knife with a silver plain edge blade (the whole knife - model 580 I think is what its called, sorry if Im confusing the model with the blade type) – I was wanting to have the ‘safety’ blade swapped to something else like a tanto, the safety blade has outlived its usefulness to me, as I don’t raft or canoe much anymore.  I don’t need the blade back, just the knife with a new tanto.  Does that make sense?  Ive attached a picture of what I sent you, but mine had a silver blade not black.


Ill take a hat, etc., thank you.
