POST FALLS, ID— Buck Knives, Inc., a global leader in the outdoor, sporting, and everyday carry (EDC) knife markets, announces the release of more than 50 new knife models as the company expands its hunting, EDC, Legacy and fishing product lines in 2023.
Leading the newly released knives is the Model 664 Alpha Hunter ™—a fixed-blade knife designed to accomplish all tasks successful hunters face in the field and while processing game animals. The Alpha Hunter’s blade and tang is crafted from S35VN steel and the unique handle is textured and available in either layered Richlite or Walnut Dymalux. This knife is approximately 8 inches long with a 3.6-inch blade and comes with a sheath. A smaller version—the 662 Alpha Scout™—is 6.6-inches long, has a 2.8-inch drop-point blade, and is also crafted from high performance S35VN steel.
Another new addition to the Buck Knives’ hunting line is the Model 117 Brahma® Pro, a fixed-blade knife with a clip-point blade and stunning green micarta handle. The Brahma Pro is 8 ¾-inches long, has a 4 ¼-inch blade and follows the classic look and design found in the Buck Knives’ 100 Pro series fixed-blade knives. Another version, the 117 Brahma with a black phenolic handle and aluminum guard and pommel, is also available.
New EDC knives from Buck include the 838 Deploy Blackout® with an Armor Black Cerakote finish on the blade and handle. The Deploy Blackout can be activated open with a push-button release and also features an integrated safety switch. The 838 Deploy Blackout knife is 5-inches long when closed and has a 3¼-inch blade. A smaller version—the 839 Mini Deploy Blackout®— is only 3¾-inches long when closed, has a 1.875-inch long blade and also features an Armor Black Cerakote finish on the blade and handle like the full-sized knife.
Buck Knives also introduces the Model 250 Saunter—a slip-joint design folding knife offered with many options to include a drop-or-clip-point blade and an O.D. green or black micarta handle. This knife is designed for in-the-pocket carry and four versions of the 250 Saunter are available. Another new EDC knife by Buck is the 040 Onset—a folding knife offered with O.D. green or black textured G10 handles, a drop-point 3.375-inch blade crafted from S45VN stainless steel, and a removable stainless-steel pocket clip.
The company also debuts five new knives in the popular Legacy series to include the stunning 590 Paradigm with a Raindrop Damascus steel drop-point blade—with spring-assist SHIFT mechanism opening—and contrasting ivory white G10 handles against a black DLC coated bolster. Another new Legacy Series knife is the 532 Bucklock with a stainless steel blade and polished copper with spine file work and micarta scales. The Slim Pro TRX series also grows with the addition of the 110 Slim Pro TRX that has bronze PVD fasteners inset in the grey bead-blasted titanium handle. Two additional Legacy knives, the fixed-blade 192 Vanguard with a green canvas micarta handle and the 110 Folding Hunter with scalloped black and brown Richlite handles will please any hunter and knife user.
Also new from Buck Knives are six models of the 239 Infusion knife with drop-point or modified-tanto blades, aluminum or G10 handles, and a reversible or removable pocket clip. Handle color options on the 239 Infusion knife include blue, orange, green, black and teal.

The 263 Hiline XL has a 3¾-inch blade and is 5.125-inches long when closed.
