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