Idaho-based Buck Knives has been manufacturing knives for over 100 years. Founded in 1902 by Hoyt Buck, the company started out making knives by hand, using worn-out file blades as the raw material. Today a fourth-generation family business, Buck Knives continues to produce high-quality knives for various purposes, including hunting, fishing, camping, and everyday carry, and has just announced thirteen new folding knives, of which eleven are available for immediate purchase, with the Alpha Hunter and Alpha Scout coming in the Spring.
Buck Knives’ blades are known for their durability and sharpness, and many models feature unique designs that make them stand out from other knives on the market, and their new knives are no different. They include:
