Buck Knives, a longtime supporter of RMOWP, has announced several new products, including a 75th anniversary edition of the 119 Special, Buck’s most popular sheath knife. Gaining fame during WWII, the original 119 Specials were designed for U.S. soldiers, made from surplus files and recycled airplane canopies. The anniversary edition knife has a six-inch clip, 420HC steel blade with an anniversary stamp. In addition, the knife handles feature a 75th anniversary medallion, and the knife comes with a leather sheath. MSRP ranges from $96 to $136.
In addition to the anniversary edition 119, Buck is releasing a limited edition historical collectors’ set featuring five 119 Specials, each knife representing a specific time period in the knife’s evolution, from 1942 to the present.
Buck has also announced that a new version of its 110 Folding Hunter is being released as an automatic knife. The blade is powerfully deployed by pushing a button, but otherwise the knife resembles the original 110 Folding Hunter and locks the blade open. It is packed in a leather sheath and the MSRP is $200.
The new 328 Graduate is a sleek, lightweight gentleman’s folding knife with a burlwood handle, one-hand opening, and locking blade. MSRP is $40.
