New Knives announced by Buck

Longtime RMOWP supporter Buck Knives has announced the mid-year release of several new products.

Buck 853

Buck 853 small Selkirk knife

Unveiled at the Outdoor Retailer Show in Salt Lake City in August, the new knives include the 853 Small Selkirk, a lightweight fixed blade knife that the company says will make a handy companion to its larger Selkirk knives as a quick access trail knife. Named for the Selkirk Mountain Range starting in Idaho, the 853 Selkirk features a contoured Micarta handle, 420HC steel blade, and a polypropylene sheath. Suggested retail price is $70.

Also new in August is Buck’s second automatic knife, the 896 RapidFire, designed for everyday use. Constructed of premium S30V steel, the Rapidfire features a dual-action, removable thumb surface offering a choice between rapid-fire automatic opening or slow-opening with liner lock engagement. Suggested retail price is $250. Buck also announced new handle coating options for its first automatic – the 898 Impact, with suggested retail prices of $225 to $245.

The new lightweight 710 Volt has a black oxide-coated 420HC steel upswept skinner blade, one-hand opening, and a red anodized aluminum handle with a stainless steel clip. Suggested retail price is $55.
