Buck Knives 119 Special
For the outdoorsmen who prefer the absolute solid feel of a fixed blade, Buck's best selling Model 119 Special sets the standard by which the others are measured.
Hoyt Buck's first knife, made from a worn-out file blade in 1902, was a fixed blade, and for many years, all Buck knives were fixed blades. Now, nearly one hundred years later, Buck Knives continues to offer a comprehensive line of fixed-blade knives, ideal for field and work. They've gone through evolutionary refinements through the years, always retaining the basic engineering to withstand the rigors of everyday use. And the best known and best liked of the fixed-blade line is the Model 119 Special.
- Overall Length - 10-1/2 inch.
- Blade Length - 6 inch.
- Weight - 7.5 ounce.
- Made in the USA.
Family Owned - Over 100 Years!
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.
