Buck is an American knife company founded in 1902. The company was founded by Hoyt Buck and has been a family company for 5 generations.
Buck is best known for inventing the “folding hunting knife”, and the iconic Model 110 is their best known knife, running through a series of mild iterations since it’s introduction in 1964.
I have not reviewed any of their classic folding knives and fixed blades, instead focusing on their modern folders. Buck is often perceived as stodgy and “old-guard” in the knife world, the company that made the knives your father and grandfather (and perhaps great great grandfather) carried, and I have enjoyed checking out some of their latest offerings. I know I’ll get around to reviewing the 110 and some of their other classic patterns eventually.
I recommend buying Buck Knives at Amazon.
