POST FALLS, ID— As a global leader in the outdoor, sporting, and everyday carry (EDC) knife markets, Buck Knives, Inc. offers more than 200 models of knives and tools for use by hunters and outdoors enthusiasts. One stand-out among those many knives crafted by the Post Falls, Idaho-based company is the iconic Model 110 Folding Hunter. This is the most recognized knife in America and often the most copied. The knife also has history!
Buck's 110 Folding Hunter was first crafted in 1963 when Al Buck decided that a revolutionary locking-blade knife was needed by hunters and outdoorsmen who wanted a sturdy knife— but did not want to carry a long, fixed-blade knife. The Model 110 Folding Hunter was designed to be easy to place into a pocket or secure on a belt with a sheath. Thus, it would take up less space but be ready when game skinning or camp chores needed attention.
What makes the 110 Folding Hunter knife America’s Most Go-To hunting and adventure knife?
Besides being easy to carry and compact, yet sturdy to tackle demanding chores, the Model 110 Folding Hunter utilizes Buck Knives’ exclusive Bos heat-treating process and has been setting a high standard in knife steel heating—and cooling—since the 1970s. Each Model 110 knife also undergoes a rigorous inspection process during manufacturing before reaching the final approval center and then passing on to packaging and shipping. For knife buyers who need more options, there are now more than a half dozen Model 110 knives offered by Buck Knives. All of those 110 knives are folders, but other options include: nickel silver bolsters instead of the standard brass bolsters; a drop point blade; an ebony handle with a clip-style blade made from S30V steel; or an auto-opening 110 knife with a black G10 handle. When only the best will do, there is the Model 110 Folding Hunter in the 2023 Legacy Collection that features scalloped Richlite handles and a distinctive barehead bolster. This knife is also made in the USA and is only available during 2023.
There are also EDC versions of the popular Model 110 Folding Hunter including the 110 Slim Pro TRX knife with a pocket clip and available handle choices of G10 in black, orange, or O.D. Green. If weight is a concern, there is also the 110 Folding Hunter LT knife that tips the scales at a scant 3.2 ounces thanks to its molded nylon handles. The LT version has a clip-style blade crafted from durable 420HC steel. This knife is just under five inches long when folded and can easily go into a pocket or be carried in the provided sheath.
