Buck has reintroduced the Kalinga and this new one is a folding model with RealTree Camo handles.
The Kalinga was Al Buck’s brainchild as the ultimate symbol of quality in a hunting knife. Originally introduced in Spring 1970, the Kalinga wasdestined to be Buck’s premium hunting knife. Today’s Kalinga is a rebirth of the classic — it replicates the original styling coupled with technology of today.
Both folder and fixed-blade feature an impressive upswept Kalinga blade matched with a contoured handle, accentuated with finger grooves and integrated guard. The steel frame handle has textured Nylon sides for a secure grip. For the finishing touch, Buck uses Realtree Hardwoods Green® HD™ camo
on the handle and matching camo sheath.
