The word “leatherneck” has become synonymous with the famous U.S. Marines since 1776 when congress compelled all marines to wear a thick, high leather collar (known in the vernacular of the day as a “stock”). this collar served two purposes; first, it helped protect one’s neck from sword and cutlass blows, and second, it forced a marine to keep his head up straight, exhibiting the military posture that was fashionable at the time. Today, after two centuries of personal sacrifice on and off the battlefield, our leathernecks enjoy the love, respect, and admiration of every true American and it is to them we dedicate the inaugural model of a new Series of Battle ready knives. The leatherneck-tanto features a hand-honed hollow ground tanto blade.
