Buck Knives 0110BKS1 110 Folding Slim Select Hunter - Clip Point 420HC Blade - Black Nylon Handle
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. He was right and the result proved to be the key to the company’s future.
The 110 Folding Hunter® is one of America’s favorite knives, this version, the 110 Slim Select Hunter, will undoubtedly follow in suit. Weighing in at under 3 ounces, the Slim Select is created with lightweight molded nylon, drastically reducing its weight while maintaining the same quality as the original Folding Hunter®. The clip point blade is finished with Buck’s advanced Edge2x blade technology for unbelievable sharpness and edge retention out of the box. Made in the USA.
