This isn’t the first time that Buck Knives has teamed with the Boy Scouts of America. They have been making an Eagle Scout commemorative edition 500 Duke for some time now, with the Eagle Scout emblem and available engraving options. They have now added several more knives to the line-up, as you can read in their release – including the classic Buck 110 Folding Hunter (review here)
Buck Knives is pleased to announce the launch of a new commemorative knife collection appealing to generations of Scouts and Scouters of the Boy Scouts of America. The timeless 110 Folding Hunter has been added to the list of products officially licensed by the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).
Each commemorative knife features the BSA® logo on the handle and is available for engraving on the blade. The collection includes a 110 Folding Hunter featuring a Cherrywood handle and nickel silver bolsters, a Rosewood handled 346 Vantage, the 722 SpitFire with a blue anodized aluminum handle, available with or without serrations, and the 726 Mini SpitFire with a blue anodized aluminum handle. Prices range from $35-$70 for the officially licensed products.
“Scouts have been carrying our pocket knives for generations,” said CJ Buck, CEO and Chairman of Buck Knives. “Maintaining traditions is extremely important to us. It is an honor to provide Scouts and Scouters with the tools to assist in their adventures.”
The first BSA licensed knife, the 500 Duke released in 2013, was designed for Eagle Scouts. The Duke sells for $50, which includes custom engraving and shipping.
These knives can be ordered directly through Buck Knives. To order, visit www.BuckKnives.com/collection/bsa/.
While there is a company producing knives under the name “Camillus”, it isn’t the same company that produced the classic Boy Scout knife that so many of us remember. It is good to see the Boy Scouts partnering with a company that is going to produce quality American knives worthy of the logo.
