Since its initial launch in 1963, the Buck Model 110 has been one of the most popular knives in the world. When it was introduced it was the only folding knife that was able to tackle jobs previously reserved for fixed blades. The lockback design of the Buck 110 has been around since the 1800s and was used for knives made in Sheffield, England and Solingen, Germany. However, when the American designed and made 110 hit the market in the early 60s, the robustness, durability, and reliability of its locking mechanism soon made it the de facto lock back in the mind of the general public. Even today many people will still describe any lockback knife as a “Buck Knife.”
Our Buck 110 makes use of contemporary materials. The S30V steel used to make the blade of our exclusive 110 is one of the most highly regarded steels on the market today. The high pressure epoxy resin G10 handles will not absorb water, and are dimensionally stable, which means they won’t shrink or expand due to differences in temperature. It’s the perfect marriage of classic design and the latest high-grade materials.
