Buck - legendary knives
Buck is characterised by the latest metal processing combined with a great tradition. The family-owned business, now in its fourth generation, produces knives which are extremely popular with hunters, anglers and bikers. Creativity and innovation have always been an integral part of the company's history. Even as a young blacksmith apprentice, founder Hoyt Buck developed a heat treatment method which gave his blades exceptional edge retention. In 1964, his son Al Buck revolutionised the knife industry with the lockable folding knife Folding Hunter. Today, Buck is one of the world's leading knife manufacturers.

It also means that the blade is very easy to resharpen. A Rockwell hardness of Rc 58 is achieved.
