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.

Larger sized, comfortable and durable. This hunting knife was designed with full tang construction and Alcryn® MPR rubber handles for superior performance in demanding end-use environments. The additional large integrated finger grooves and grip areas provide safety of use. The larger Bucklite MAX™ is available with both a standard drop point blade and a guthook version.

Cons: None
HAVE HAD SINCE SEPT 2012
I HAD THE BUCK DIAMONDBACK THAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS 2008 THE DIAMONDBACK WAS ONLY MADE FROM 2006 TILL 2008 AND WAS MADE IN CHINA. I GOT TO USE IT IN JANUARY 2009 DURING THE REMAINDER OF SQUIRRL SEASON WHICH ENDED JANUARY 29 I PUT THE KNIFE UP TILL SEPT 2010 AND USED IT THAT FOLLOWING SQUIRRL AND DEER SEASON I USED IT ON PROB 15-18 SQUIRRL'S FROM JANUARY 2009 TILL JANUARY 2011 EVEN USED IT TO FIELD DRESS A FOUR POINT BUCK IN 2011. I PUT IT UP AT END OF SEASON I GOT IT OUT IN SEPT 2012 TO SHARPEN IT FOR SQUIRRL SEASON AND IT WOULD NOT TAKE A EDGE I SENT IT BACK TO BUCK WITH A NOTE SAYING WHAT WAS WRONG TWO WEEKS LATER THEY SENT ME THE BUCK 679 MAX LITE GUTHOOK VERSION ALONG WITH A 25% OFF DISCOUNT CARD TO ORDER A KNIFE FROM THEIR SITE I ENDED UP ORDERING A NEW BUCK 110 FOLDING HUNTER. I HAVE USED THE GUTHOOK MAX LITE ON QUITE A FEW SQUIRRL'S SINCE HAVING IT SINCE SEPT 2012 AND EVEN HAVE USED IT ON A RABBIT OR TWO . IT IS MADE IN POST FALLS IDAHO AND IS MADE FROM 420 HIGH CARBON STAINLESS STEEL THAT TAKES A NICE EDGE AND IS VERY EASY TO SHARPEN AND WILL HOLD A EDGE FOR A VERY LONG TIME. I ONLY HAVE TO SHARPEN IT ABOUT FIVE OR SIX TIMES A YEAR WHILE IT IS HUNTING SEASON. I OWN QUITE A FEW BUCK KNIVES BUT MY SMALL MAX LITE 673 IS MY FAVORITE FOR SMALL GAME HUNTING AND MY 679 MAXLITE GUTHOOK IS ALSO MY FAVORITE I CARRY THEM BOTH EVERY TIME I GO IN THE WOODS TO HUNT. I ENDED UP CARRING IT OVER THE WINTER A FEW DIFFERANT TIMES WHEN A FRIEND AND I WENT COYOTE HUNTING FROM 6PM AT NIGHT TILL 2 AM THAT MORNING CAUSE THEY ARE LIGHT WEIGHT AND THEIR WAS ABOUT FOUR INCHES OF SNOW ON THE GROUND. EVEN HAVE USED IT TO CUT UP SNACKES TO EAT WHILE OUT IN THE WOODS HUNTING. I USE THEM ALL THE TIME WHEN I AM IN THE WOODS.

MY BUCKLITE 679 THAT WAS A REPLACEMANT for my diamonback gut hook
I USE THIS KNIFE TO SQUIRRL HUNT AND DEER HUNT THE BUCK MAXLITE 679 WITH GUTHOOK IT WAS A REPLACEMANT FOR MY BUCK DIAMONDBACK GUT HOOK THAT THE STEEL WENT BAD IN AND WOULD NOT SHARPEN ANY LONGER. . I HAVE USED THIS ALREADY ON SEVERAL SQUIRRL'S AND I HOPE TO GET TO USE IT ON A DEER THIS YEAR DURING BOW AND GUN SEASON. I LIKE THE FACT THAT THIS KNIFE HAS A LITTLE BIGGER BLADE THAN MY PREVIOUS KNIFE DID. THE DIAMONDBACK SERIES WAS ONLY PRODUCED BY BUCK KNIVES FROM 2006 TILL 2008 IT WAS MADE FROM J2 STEEL WITCH IS A VERY CHEAPER STEEL. NOW THE NEW SERIES THE MAXLITE IS MADE FROM 420 HC STEEL AND MADE IN POST FALLS IDAHO. MY BUCK 679 MAXLITE IS A 2012 MODEL. THE BUCK BRAND IS THE ONLY BRAND I HUNT WITH AND CARRY IN THE WOODS AND AS A EVERY DAY CARRY KNIFE I USE A BUCK 110 PLUS USE IT HUNTING AS WELL.

Cons: Finish, Weight, Sheath/Scabbard
Handle Feels Great.
Got this knife for my brother. He says that one of the best features he says about it is how great the handle feels and the material it is made out of. That the hook is of really good quality and design and that everything is fantastic. The only negative is the sheath which is were it is made. For some reason the knifes are made in the U.S. but, sheaths made in china. No problem other than that though.
