Outdoor Life - Essential Tools For Your Outdoor Life

Our roots are in the outdoors and this is where they remain. A few years ago we returned to our roots when we moved our headquarters to Post Falls, Idaho – right in the heart of some of the finest outdoor activities in the country – hunting, fishing, camping and hiking. These products were inspired by the outdoor life that we all love and enjoy.

Hunting - The First Buck

Improving hunting performance. Hunting is where it all started over a hundred years ago and this is still the main focus for Buck. We are constantly making refinements that improve the performance of our knives and crafting new designs that allow hunters to improve performance of field dressing and skinning.

Ergonomic design, improving hunting performance. The Ergohunter Small Game™ series of knives have a new, innovative design exclusive to comfort and control for hunters needing a reliable small game knife. The small Wharncliffe blade is designed with a dull backbone that allows the blade to be held with a finger for maximum control. With multiple blade steel options and handle materials, this knife will be the choice of any hunter.

Superior Handle

This knife is built for comfort and control, while utilizing a superior grip. This smaller knife design is based on the primary gripping positions during use, to reduce hand fatigue and increase hunting performance.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
Best knife
The steel surpasses the steel of every other knife I have owned and out of the box is razor sharp. it is slightly harder to sharpen than most but that doesn't bother me due to the enjoyment I get out of sharpening knives. The down side is the shape (as good as it is for skinning) makes the blade more difficult to sharpen forcing me to use slip stones, (a strop still works though). I have very large hands and this knife seems slightly weird at first, but when using it the feel of the knife seems to suit the tasks it has been designed for, extraordinarily well. Absolutely, fantastically, aesthetic knife, it almost hurts to use it.

Huge Buck Fan
I like this made in USA BUCK 498 knife so much, started out as a hunting knife, but I can't leave the house without thow'in it in the rig. Ergo-grip is super - feels like an extension of the hand. BOS Heat Treated S30V blade is smooth cutting. Doesn't hurt that Rosewood holds your grip and looks pretty cool too.The 499 Gut hook is a bonus.The sheath is very well built, 5 ply leather - just wish it was made in USA.

Excellent knife
Already used it to gut my first deer within 2 days of receipt of knife and went through the processing like butter! Great feel, but WARNING: RIGHTIES ONLY!! Yes I'm a righty so I'm good, but it's built for a righty...just a heads up.
