A new year brings new knives, as well as a special commemorative version of an old favorite, for Buck Knives, a longtime corporate friend of RMOWP. Buck’s classic 110 Folding Hunter has been transformed in celebration of its 50th anniversary: all the popular features remain, but the commemorative version features an anniversary medallion on the handle and custom blade stamp denoting 50 years, and comes with a genuine leather sheath.
Other knives in the 2014 line-up include additions and redesigns to the hunting, camping and hiking, fishing, survival/tactical, and everyday categories. Among these are the new 726 Mini SpitFire, a durable two-position clip knife for everyday carry weighing just 2.1 ounces.
Buck has redesigned its 183 Alpha Crosslock to offer more control in wet, slippery conditions, and the spear point blade and saw blade with integrated gut hook, create an effective multi-function hunting knife. An addition to its popular Clearwater Series is the 021 Clearwater Bait Knife, weighing just 3.7 ounces. The 5-inch double-sided blade features backside serrations for heavy duty cutting, which helps save the fine-edged blade for efficient slicing and clean cuts.
In its knives for everyday use category, Buck introduces the new lightweight 316 Talus, a reliable and durable knife with a partially serrated 420HC steel blade and a suggested retail price of only $35, and has redesigned the 290 Rush to include colored anodized handles.
