Buck Knives

THE appropriate STEEL FOR THE END USE - Buck blades start sharper and stay sharper longer. It's always been true...because we fit steels to the desirable use of the knife, due to our advanced technology, and as a result of the proprietary heating-treating process of our expert group, starting with Paul Bos.

PAUL BOS HEAT-TREAT - The heat-treating of all our knives made at our factory in Post Falls, ID is essential to ensuring the pedigree and integrity of every blade. We are constantly optimizing our approaches. The process involves human blade heating, freezing, and then reheating (or tempering) the metal using state-of-the-art proprietary technology.

Edge2x™ TECHNOLOGY - This technology is our proprietary alternative for prolonging edge retention. We achieve this with always thinner, flatter, and better edges. Hollow grinding additionally leads to strength retention. In addition, we hand-edge every blade to minimize risk of burning, which can reduce durability and create the blade more brittle. A laser-measuring device verifies that a given border matches the desired requirements. The effect; edge bevels that are flat, consistent and so are easier to sharpen.

SUPERIOR FIT & FINISH - The way a knife feels in the hand is essential to the general role of the knifeblade. The tactile sense of the grip and locking mechanism is significant to the general safe use of this knife. We take great care in selecting handle substances, lightweight aluminum -- resin enhanced woods -- hand finished natural substances -- indestructible G10 laminate -- leading to a level of quality that suits the knife and also suits your taste.

FOREVER WARRANTY - Our famous FOREVER WARRANTY pushes the quality of each Buck knife.
