Buck Knives has released the prettiest Kalinga yet- The Kalinga Big Game model with rosewood handle. It has a full tang top quality stainless steel blade(S30V) and a Burgundy leather sheath.
Long one of the favorite Buck authentic models, the legend of the Kalinga continues, redesigned for today’s hunter. The beefy, upswept skinner blade is top-of-the-line S30V steel. The form-fitting handle is constructed with full-tang S30V steel, polished Brass guard and Rosewood sides, resin-impregnated for lasting beauty and functional durability.
This stunning knife needs to be seen and held to be appreciated. The soul of the Kalinga Pro is the hard steel blade that is as visually impressive as it is functionally superior. Once your eye gets past the sweeping curves and wide body, you notice the deep, curved choil that serves as an additional finger groove for choking up on the grip. Similarly, the blade is thick along the top edge for extended thumb support, and the generously proportioned guard cradles and protects your hand, with or without use of the choil. The smoothly finished Rosewood is contoured and formed to mate with the thick, full tang frame that provides the strength and confidence of a solid length of steel. When held, the balance and feel transmit control and command right through your hand. This is an aesthetically captivating knife that mesmerizes your attention like no other.
