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.

There is something about American made Buck knives. I got this as it is a great high value knife. The sheathe is decent but a bit too snug. The handle is comfortable and grippy. The spine has the best thumb choils I have ever felt. I would have no problem trusting this knife for all except heavy duty chopping. A bargain American made blade that should be in everyone's collection.

Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
A Good Knife That Deserves A Real Sheath
I believe I'm in the majority when I say the sheath that Buck provides is close to useless, and well below what I've come to expect from Post Falls. Not only is it larger than it needs to be, resulting in the knife rattling around in the sheath if it's not snapped, the grade of materials used is ridiculous. The knife itself would be a great EDC, but it's actually able to cut through the thin, soft plastic liner. Once that happens the nylon begins to suffer. I had planned to use this knife for work, but will first have to find a decent sheath.

my buck fixed blade knives
I have the buck 679 model's one with guthook and the other without I am gonna be rabbit hunting with a good friend of mine at his brother's farm I plan on having both of them on my belt hve not had a chance to use them yet. I had a buck diamondback with guthook would not get sharp no longer due to bad steel sent it back got my new one but they sent the one without gut hook called them back talked to warranty department they said to keep one they accidently sent and they sent the correct one out that day . Only thing I had to do was order the extra sheath from buck and I was good to go. I also have the Buck 673 as well and it has been used squirrel and deer hunting and they are made from 420 HC steel that will get like a razor with a good Arkansas sharpening stone or one of the old razor hones if you can even find the I use a few of them my neighbor passed down to me they was in his family for years. I even have the Buck Omni with buck paklite guthook combo also. And now I also have a Buck 110 on the way that I just ordered cant wait to get it and put it to use . The Buck brand is all I carry and use in the woods rather I am hunting or just walking to look at different sites for my friend and I to go to on his mom's land in the woods. My friend has a Buck fixed blade as well but he always ends up using mine due to how razor sharp I can sit and get them sometimes I spend a 1/2 hour or mabe 1 hour sitting and sharpening them I don't have to touch them up to often it depends on how much they get used.
