Buck Knives


A young Kansas blacksmith apprentice named Hoyt Buck was looking for a better way to temper steel so it would hold an edge longer. His unique approach produced the first Buck Knife in 1902.

Hoyt made each knife by hand, using worn-out file blades as raw material. His handy work was greatly appreciated during World War II. After the war, Hoyt and his son Al moved to San Diego and set up shop as H.H. Buck & Son in 1947. Their biggest leap forward came in 1964 with the introduction of the world famous Buck 110 folding lock-back hunting knife, still in production and widely used today.

Although they spent many decades in San Diego, Buck now resides in Post Falls, Idaho. Any Buck model we show is made in the USA.
