When you’re heading off into the great outdoors, you’re going to need a solid set of tools – specifically knives. The folks at Buck Knives have just rolled out a trio of knives that are sure to help you tackle any job the untamed wilderness will present during your nature excursion.

The set includes three different cutting tools; a knife, hatchet and a multi-purpose wood working tool (chopping froe). The 104 Camp Knife ($80) utilizes a 5160 steel blade that measures in at 9.5 inches long. The 106 Compadre ($120) is a fully capable hatchet (also utilizing 5160 steel), weighs just 24 ounces and comes complete with a leather sheath for storage. The 108 Compadre Chopping Froe ($160) was designed for clearing brush and heavy wood working (essentially a machete), and also features a 5160 blade measuring in at 17.5 inches.The real selling point to all three knives in the collection is the corrosion resistant, red powdercoat finish found on each blade. Each one is also mated to a beautiful walnut-dymonwood handle that looks rugged, while still being completely ergonomic and comfortable to wield. All of them are built right here in the USA.
