For further reading I recommend Mike Silvey’s book, “The Complete Book of United States Military Pocket Knives” you’ll find these Easy Open Jack’s listed on page 101 – 103.
You can also see more pictures of the Navy General Utility Knives and information in Mike Silvey’s earlier book, “Pocket Knives of the United States Military.” In that excellent little work he shows pictures of the general utility knives on pages 65 through page 68. While it is the same subject matter in both books, they are different pictures and I believe slightly different material in both books. Here’s one for your Rogers bone collection!
