Buck Vantage Series of US Made Folders
Buck Knives is a great American company. They don’t rest on their past accomplishments and they keep coming up with great products. Buck is trying to move production back to the US for new items and these are a wonderful example. Two sizes of folders with a variety of handle and blade materials. Prices start at $19.95 and for an American made folder, that’s not bad!
So far, we have just gotten in the basic models in large and small size. These have the Buck Steel (420HC) and plastic handles, but they work and feel really great. The flipper opens them smoothly and quickly, although they are not assisted. The handle material has a really solid feel and have full steel liners. The polished pocket clip is attached to allow reversible, deep pocket carry. These are well engineered folders and we are glad to have them at www.knifecenter.com.

Buck ErgoHunters Series
Buck Knives is doing it right. They are bringing production back to the USA in their Idaho factory with some great new lines. They are dividing this Ergo Hunter selection into good, better and best models. You can get a particular blade size and style with a serviceable 420C stainless blade and molded plastic handle, or get a similar knife with an upgraded Sandvik™ 12C27Mod steel blade and wood handle or go for the top of the line with an S30V super stainless blade and upgraded handle. The consumer gets his choice. All are made in the USA. What a great idea!

Buck Gamut™ Folding Utility Knife
This is an interesting, new design from Buck Knives. The Gamut is a rounded handle folder that comes with a good quality belt sheath and lanyard. The handle has a great feel and it is a good sized blade. The steel is 420J2 stainless- which is typical of a lot of China knives- and this is made in China, but the overall quality if really good. The lockup is very solid- and this is something that a lot of very expensive knives have a problem with! The clip point blade is long and narrow with a serrated section. This is a good folder and I can absolutely see having one of these at a campsite for general use. It’s inexpensive enough that, if I left it behind, I wouldn’t sweat it.

Buck’s New 300 Series with Wood handles- USA Made
Buck knives has been producing the 300 series as long as we can remember. They are small, mostly multiblade folders that are easy to carry and well made. They have always been American made until Buck brought in some China imports last year with wood handles. These new ones, however, also have wood (Dymonwood- laminated birch with stabilizing). They are handsome looking and well made in Buck’s new Idaho factory.

Buck X-Tract Essential™ Multi-Tool
The Buck X-Tracts have been hits for the last several years. This new model scales it down to an easy-to-carry item with just the essentials – hence the name “The Buck Essential“.
We like being able to carry just the blade, screw drivers and a scissors. It may still be a little thick, but we think it is the best of the series for most of us.

Buck Smidgen Small Neck Knife with Deluxe Sheath, Lanyard and Carabiner
Buck knives had a lot of luck with the Hartsook neck knife. It is small and easy to carry and well designed and reasonably priced. They went and designed another tiny neck knife but are able to sell it at an even lower price. The steel is different, but the sheath system is awesome. It has a carabiner attached that has a bottle opener built in. We like this small knife and the price makes it a natural.
Here is Buck’s information on it: Continue Reading
