Its explosive popularity hit camps across 1960s North America almost overnight. The days of carrying bulky kitchen or military knives into the field were over. Cutting power was now as easy as slipping the Buck 110's canoe-shaped frame into a pocket.
I'm a knife nut anyway, but nothing in my collection rivals the prestige of the Buck 110. It's a top choice when I'm working at my ranch, hunting in the field or just going about daily business.
There's a certain comfort in knowing the Buck 110's design is older than I am. It's like having a mentor in my pocket, a reminder of how to do things right the first time. From the silky-smooth lockback release that keeps its 3 3/4-inch clip blade standing at attention to the brass bolsters on the handle, the Buck 110 showcases the beauty of performance-driven simplicity.
Turkey hunters owe it to themselves to add a Buck 110 to their knife collection. They'll be part of a hunting story far larger than themselves. They'll also have a knife that they can count on, a real friend.
