As the 50th anniversary of the classic 110 Folding Hunter approaches, Buck Knives is preparing to debut several new knives and a few redesigns. A 50th Anniversary Buck 110 is expected, with commemorative blade and handle decorations and a classic leather sheath.
No official photos of the new models are available. Buck wants to keep us guessing until they pull aside the veil at next month’s SHOT Show and I’ll be there when they do.First up is the new US-made Buck 830 Marksman:
Built to serve the needs of those in survival/tactical situations, this heavy duty knife definitely delivers one of the strongest locking blades out there. Designed with a new locking mechanism developed by Grant and Gavin Hawk, the Strong Lock System (SLS) is easily deployed with one hand and ensures safety and durability with the blade being solidly locked open. The SLS, once deployed, offers the strength of a fixed blade. The Marksman is one intense, high-level knife for the most demanding of situations. MSRP: $150
Next comes the new Buck 726 Mini SpitFire, also made in the US:
Introduced in 2013, the full size SpitFire prompted the development of a new, smaller version to meet consumer demands. The 726 SpitFire is a great two-position clip knife for everyday carry. Offered in three popular colors and constructed of 420HC steel, the SpitFire’s are slim, sleek, lightweight and durable. With a total weight of only 2.1 ounces, the anodized aluminum handles make these durable and lightweight for easy carry. MSRP: $48
