Established in 1947 under the banner of H.H. Buck & Son, Buck Knives carved out a unique reputation for itself through the production of small-batch, handmade knives that hugely trumped mass-production blades in terms of overall quality and craftsmanship. Over the company’s expansive history, it’s been responsible for a myriad of iconic models, and with Buck rapidly approaching its 75th anniversary, the Idaho-based outfit has decided to mark the occasion with a number of rereleased versions of some of its most lauded knives that are now constructed from more premium and contemporary constructions.
Christened the 2021 Legacy Collection, the new five-blade lineup is made entirely by hand in America and backed by Buck’s Forever Warranty. The collection sees numerous iconic Buck models — including the Frontiersman and the Kalinga fixed blades, the 055 and 110 folders, and the modern 898 automatic flipper — gifted top-shelf S35VN steel and premium handle materials such as anodized aluminum with marbled carbon fiber inlays. Scheduled for a release in March, the Buck Knives 2021 Legacy Collection starts at $150.
