My first knife as a child was a Buck knife! I can remember feeling so “adult” that my parents trusted me with my very own pocket knife. I used it for everything; cutting bales of hay, opening feed sacks, cutting limbs for cooking marshmallows and hot dogs over fires and so much more. When I actually became an adult, I continued to use that knife daily, and it is still with me today. Imagine my honor of being able to carry on the tradition and give my children, and now my grandson his first Buck knife and watching the cycle repeat itself.

With the tips for keeping your knife blade sharp (https://www.buckknives.com/about-knives/knife-sharpening/) cutting things like bailing twine is no problem.

Ryan got his first Buck knife at age six, and it started him on a love of knives. He always has one either in his pocket or attached to his belt. When I gave him the Buck model 110 Folding Hunter knife, it quickly became his favorite.

According to Ryan, “The Buck 110 Folding Hunter is an awesome knife. The first Buck model 110 was made in 1964 and they still make them today. The knife has a very nice looking finish, the sheath has a good quality snap to keep the knife secure.  The wood handle is the perfect size for anyone’s hands. The blade has kept a nice edge even after a month of chores every day. I have not had to sharpen the knife since I got it. The blade also has a great looking USA engraving.”

With a little care (https://www.buckknives.com/about-knives/knife-care/) your Buck knife model 110 should last your lifetime!
