Huh. Digging in a bit the most common name I'm seeing for the style is a "bosun's rigging knife" but until now I'd only ever seen the German variant.

Funny thing is, I came across the German one in US Army Navy surplus stores and didn't even realize it was in a style -- it's so odd looking I figured it was just kinda their thing. You'd think I'd have found USN models there, or at least seen the Buck variant by now. Several different models here: https://theboatswainsmatestore.com/collections/bosns-rigging-knife-shop

True, when you're the Captain, you can make the other guys to do that stuff.
