Buck Knives Raven Legacy
The Buck Knives Raven is a classic fixed blade we are really glad to see it in production. Rob Simonich was a friend to the KnifeCenter, both personally and professionally, and he has been sorely missed since his passing several years ago. His widow has teamed up with Buck to produce a collaboration knife, and we are proud to carry it. The Raven Legacy takes many of Rob’s innovations and puts them into a knife which soldiers and civilians can afford…and depend on.
Here is some more info and some SPECS of this model:
Founder, Rob Simonich successfully built a reputation as one of the most popular and innovative knife makers in the world during his lifetime.

Rob was in the knife business for over 21 years and within his lifetime, successfully built a reputation as a very popular and innovative knife maker. Simonich Knives was featured on the covers of two major Knife magazines and the DLC Urban Raven won the Blade Magazine, American Made Knife of the Year Aware in 2003.
