Buck launches new knives

Trio of new knives launched by US brand

US knife maker Buck has launched a trio of new knives for campers, hikers, bikers, mountaineers and other outdoor enthusiasts.

The new Revel, FlashPoint and Redpoint knives have been designed to meet a range of tasks while enjoying the great outdoors and will be available in time for the autumn/winter season through UK distributor Whitby & Co.

Whitby has recently started distribution of a new climbing knife from Wenger, as well as value Leatherman multitools.

Each new Buck knife features high-quality 420HC stainless steel locking blades and SafeSpin technology, which allows one-handed opening/closing of the knife without touching the blade.

The FlashPoint includes carabineer clips and anodised aluminium handles with rubberised inlay, while the Revel features a glass reinforced nylon with rubber texture overmould handle and a stainless steel reversible pocket clip. Redpoint includes an all-weather grip ETP handle with rubber overmould as well as a Utility Arch and stainless steel belt clip providing a range of carrying options.

Garry Woodhouse, sales and marketing director at Whitby & Co, said: “These new knives from Buck will make an ideal companion to anyone who enjoys the great outdoors. Whether you’re cooking by a campfire or enjoying a picnic while out on a walk they’re exactly what you’re looking for.

“Buck combines state-of-the-art technology with cutting edge design and engineering and high-quality materials to make some of the best knives on the market. Great care is taken to blend the right properties into the stainless steel used in Buck knives to ensure they hold their edge for longer and are easier to resharpen.

“Buck consistently produces a wide range of knives to meet the varying needs of all kinds of outdoor enthusiasts. These latest knives are a welcome addition to the Buck family.”
