The reputable American knife company reached into their 2014 archive to update an exceptional set of cutting tools for the rugged outdoorsman. With the Buck Knives Compadre collection, you’ll be ready to handle almost any task in the backcountry from chopping to batoning.

Gear up for your next backpacking trip with the updated, American-made Compadre series, which includes the 104 Compadre Camp Knife, 106 Compadre Camp Ax, and the 108 Compadre Froe — all three of which boast significant upgrades over their 2014 equivalents. The star of the show is the 108 Compadre Froe, which boasts a 9.5-inch Cerakote Cobalt coated 5160 spring steel blade and a natural canvas Micarta handle. The Cerakote finish on the blade gives it a unique aesthetic while protecting it from corrosion and rust. And the Froe comes with a black sheath made from genuine leather. This heavy-duty blade is constructed to perform a variety of tasks in the wild, including clearing pathways and splitting wood. All three tools in the Compadre series are available right this second, starting at $125.
