Buck Knives Famous 110 Folding Hunter
The Folding Hunter has set the standard for folding lock blade knives for generations. The high quality materials, experienced craftsmen, and attention to every detail, are just a few reasons Buck Knives one of the top brands in the cutlery industry.
Buck's Folding Hunter was created in 1963 when Al Buck decided that a revolutionary folding lockblade knife was needed by outdoorsmen who wanted a sturdy knife but did not want to carry a long fixed-blade knife. The challenge was to combine the strengths of a fixed blade knife into a good-looking, reliable folding knife. Within two years it was the No. 1 selling sports knife in the world! The Folding Hunter, after more than 39 years, is an iconic knife known throughout the world.

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. Hoyt's eldest son Al had relocated from the Pacific Northwest to San Diego, California after finishing a stint in the navy a decade earlier. Hoyt and his wife, Daisy, moved in with Al and his young family in 1945 and set up shop as H.H. Buck and Son.
Following the death of his father, Al kept the fledgling custom knife business going until incorporating Buck Knives, Inc. in 1961. Al Buck revolutionized the knife industry in 1964 with the Model 110 Folding Hunter. The folding 'lockblade' knife made Buck a leader. A position we proudly hold today. Hoyt and Al Buck's ingenuity may have put the company on the map, but it is our ongoing commitment to developing innovative new products and improving what we have by third and fourth generation Buck family members that have made Buck the successful knife maker it is today. Frankly, it is what our customers expect from a Buck.

Paul Bos Heat Treatment
We give credit where credit is due. Without this man, we would not have the patented heat treating system that has made our blades so legendary.
Paul Bos, a nationally known heat-treat authority has been heat-treating since 1956. Before his retirement from Buck Knives in 2010, he served 70% of America's custom knife makers as well as overseeing all of the heat-treating in Buck Knives factory, where he was able to consult with Buck's engineers. Paul's link to Buck Knives goes back to his early years when he worked on custom knives for Al Buck in the late 1950s. Buck Knives continues to operate Paul's heat treating business out of our factory, led now by Paul Farner who worked under Bos for many years
The process Bos developed, which involves heating, freezing, and then reheating of the steel is like none other in the business, and is why Buck knives are famous for being sharper out of the box and staying sharp longer.
In 2007 Bos was the recipient of the Blade Magazine Industry Achievement Award for the contributions and advances he made in heat treating technology. Furthermore, in 2010 he was inducted into the 'Blade Magazine Cutlery Hall of Fame' in recognition of nearly 50 years as the foremost authority on the heat treatment of steel for knife blades.
Even in his retirement, Bos continues in an advisory role for Buck Knives, and makes trips to the Idaho plant as needed.

Update Feb 11, 2017: Added a photo comparing the length and size of the 55BRS Folding knife, the 112BRS Ranger Loopback Folding knife and the 110 Folding Hunter knife. The 55 is at the top, the 112 is in the middle and 110 is at the bottom.
The blade is beautiful in and of itself. Buck uses a 440 High Carbon steels for this knife, which I believe is proprietary to Buck. It is renown for holding an edge exceptionally well. The Knife I received was extremely sharp out of the box. I really like the semi-sharpened spine on the back of the blade too. I haven't tried it yet, but it seems like it would great with a firesteel. The knife I received had very little side to side wiggle, which is a sign of a quality knife. The locking mechanism is solid and simply to use. When open, it feels like you're holding a fixed blade knife.
The sheath is great as well, and you need a sheath for this knife. It is large and uncomfortable to hold in a pocket. On your belt however, it sits great in the sheath and I forget it is there. I wanted a brown leather sheath for mine as it suits me better, so I picked up one on here for about $27. It a a little expensive, but knowing that I am going to have this knife for the rest of my life, I wanted the sheath to suit my style.
I received a 50th anniversary edition of the knife and I am so glad I did. It's got a beautiful 50 years emblem on the wood handle. There is a reason this knife has been around for 50 years - they are beautiful, incredibly functional, built to last, and made in America. I would gladly buy this knife again and again, but luckily I won't have to - this knife will still be going like a champ long after I'm gone, especially considering Buck's great 4Ever warranty (though I doubt I'll ever need it).
If you are not sure about this knife, trust me and purchase it. It is worth every penny, and from the moment you take it out of the box you will be in love with this knife.
