Model 110 Buck Knife

$77.00 USD

Taggart often hires Bill Jackson, the local bush pilot, to fly him and a canoe up to the remote reaches of the Pineroot. Bill has spent his entire adult life flying Norsemen and Beavers from Juneau to Iqaluit. He always carries five things in his flight bag – a ham sandwich, a thermos of coffee, a silk topo map, a lensatic compass, and this Buck Knife.

If simple is beautiful, and reliable is ideal, this is the perfect all-round knife. The Model 110 Folding Hunter Knife was designed in 1963 when Al Buck decided that a revolutionary lock blade knife was needed by outdoorsmen who needed a sturdy knife but did not want to carry a long fixed-blade knife. (For example, when folks like Bill are jumping in and out of the cockpit, or hand-bombing gear from the pontoons to shore.)

Al Buck’s challenge was to design a knife that combined a strong blade with a reliable locking mechanism that was also good-looking. It wasn't easy, but after a series of refinements, the Model 110 emerged. It can be tucked away safely in a pocket or on a belt loop, opens easily, and is strong enough to be used for even the toughest task. Within six months, this innovation was the hottest knife in the industry and set the standard for every other folding knife. 50 years later it is one of America's most iconic knives.
