Buck Knives History
In 1902, Hoyt Buck was a 13-year-old blacksmith’s apprentice when he began making knives and developing his own steel tempering technique. His talents were put to good use during World War II, when he forged and donated fixed-blade knives to the armed forces. Following the war, Buck partnered with his son and opened H. H. Buck & Son. Buck’s trademark folder, the Buck 110, was the first pocket knife considered equal to fixed blade tasks. Today, Buck remains a leader in the industry, keeping pace with the advancements of technology while staying true to its roots.
