Buck Knives founder Hoyt Buck’s first knife was made from a worn-out file blade in 1902. That knife was a fixed blade, and for many years, all Buck knives were fixed blades. Now, over 100 years later, Buck Knives offers a comprehensive line of fixed-blade knives, ideal for field and general tasks. Buck’s best-selling model 119 Special sets the standard by which the others are measured for the outdoorsmen who prefer the absolute solid feel of a fixed blade. Buck now has a 119 Special Pro featuring S35VN stainless steel, and green canvas Micarta handles based on this timeless design. This combination of materials offers the best grip with Buck’s premium steel to ensure maximum field performance.
