Buck Knives History of Hoyt H Buck by James Huff

One of the most trusted names in pocket knives and hunting knives is Buck knives. Buck knives is the name of Quality in the world of knives. Buck knives where created by Hoyt H Buck. Hoyt Buck started making hunting knives as a apprentice in Kansas over 100 years ago. He later moved to Idaho and then started to make knives. After the bombing of Pear Harbor. When the military asked for help to arm the troops Hoyt Buck started to make knives for them to help in the fight, and got knives into the hands of as many troops as he could.

Later he and his son moved Buck knives to San Diego and started making knives on a much larger scale. This is where the Buck knives that we all know was made. It is called the Buck folding hunter and is one of the most copied knives in the world. Witch supports the claim that Buck knives is one of the greatest manufactures in the world and is why Buck knives are second to none.

Buck knives also made a survival knife called the Buckmaster. These knives where made for the military and also one of the knives that you know from the Rambo movies. Later Buck knives where also made for the navy seals. This knife is called the Knighthawk. This is another testament to the quality of Buck knives, one of the best makers of pocket knives, hunting knives, or survival knives world wide. If Buck knives are trusted by the U.S. military then I think that we all can trust them.

Later in 2005 Buck knives moved back to where it all started, back to Idaho where the first knives where made so help the war effort Buck knives has a history of being the best. From the first knives that Hoyt H Buck made to the Buck knives of today when we go hunting or fishing or on our camping trips, and all the knives that have served our young men and young ladies in the military. So if you want the best, buy Buck knives and you cant go wrong. They are just great knives.

Sodbuster Knives

Over 150 years ago the Sodbuster Plough was invented to plough the hard dry ground of the Great Western Plains of the USA.

Because of the dry arid conditions, the topsoil was baked into an extremely hard crust known as ‘Sod’.

Traditional iron ploughs were not strong enough, and the ‘Sodbuster Plough’ made of steel was introduced to do the job.

The 1862 Homestead Act provided 160 acres of free land to anyone willing to set up a farm in the Great Plains. The top layer of earth or Sod was so tough that it was used as building bricks by Homesteaders in the Great Plains. Other inventions around this time were, barbed wire to fence off and protect farm land, horse-drawn reapers, binders and threshers and combine harvesters.

The Sodbuster Knife is a large size, low cost, single bladed folding knife. The size has been scaled down recently and UK legal carry Sodbuster Junior knives are available.

Humvee Recon Tactical Folding Knife

The Humvee Recon HMV-KTR-04 is a great little EDC knife. I'm a big fan of inexpensive knives that do the job, and that you don't feel bad if you misplace or …


Bill Clinton asked Were the pocket swiss army knives ever used by the swiss military?

Also will the blade fold down when you stab something and cit your hands?

And got the following answer:

Yes, but they weren’t used for combat, mainly for repairing their rifles and opening up canned goods. You couldn’t do much damage with them anyways. And no, unless you have a knockoff brand of them. When ever you flip the blade a lock mechanism in it catches it so you would have to press that to let the blade go back.

cqbigfish asked Any stores selling tactical combat knives and folding knives in New York?

Hope can get the address information of such stores in New York.
I get hobbies of martial arts and collecting cold weapons and will visit New York next month for only 2 days.
No purchase from the internet for me.
Thanks.
Hunting knives and pocket folding knives also welcomed!
Pls tell me where can I get them in New York.
Thanks.

And got the following answer:

If you mean New York City, probably not. NYC has restrictive knife laws. So even if you find somewhere to buy knives, be careful that the knife you buy is legal for carry in NYC.

Big Tuna asked What is the best combat folding knife?

I’m looking for a combat knife that is durable, sharp, and well made.

And got the following answer:

Depends on what you plan on doing with it, when and how you plan on carrying it.

IE:

Are you plan on carrying it in civilian clothing or just while deployed ?

Civilian carry :

You need to be aware of legal blade lengths — generally 3 inch’s is the max legal blade length, in some states its 2 3/4 inch.

Weight – anything more than 3 or 4 oz, is hard to carry, it just weights your pocket down to much

Military carry – you can get tactical knives with up to 5 inch blades that can weigh up to 8 ozs

2. What to look for :

a. Steel liners – most tactical knives have handles made of high tech plastics that provide very good grips, even when wet, but plastic is still plastic, so for strength and durability, the handle needs to have steel liners inside the plastic.

b. Blade material —

AUS8 Stainless Steel blade – stays sharp, easy to sharpen
154CM Steel blade – stays sharp, harder to sharpen, but is a very tough blade
VG-10 steel — very high quality, stays sharp, easy to sharpen and is tough

3. Qualitry knife makers:

Benchmade
Cold Steel
Zero Tolerance
CRKT
Emmerson

Frogger asked Is a spyderco tenacious a good folding knife for self defense?

I carry a spyderco tenacious along with a pepper spray when I go outside since I live in a pretty messed neighborhood. Would this knife be ideal in a situation where I would need to defend myself?
I lvie in VA and the law here states that there is no length limit on a folding knife that you can carry in public.

And got the following answer:

Before I saw anything, I must tell you to use your non lethal weapon (pepper spray) on an attacker first. Only under dire circumstances should your knife be used as a weapon. I idealize my knives as tools that can be used as weapons, rather than the opposite.

Even if you can prove in court that your life was in danger and the attacker was killed or wounded in self defense, you will have some sort of a criminal charge on your record, if you’re lucky it would be a minor misdemeanor. It has even been said that consequences of using a knife in lawful self defense are worse than those of using a gun.

However, I do value my life vey much and would use my knife as a self defense weapon if it was absolutely necessary.

The Tenacious does not have an ideal blade shape for self defense. It is not the worst, but it isnt great. I prefer slashers for self defense. I believe stabbing blade shapes (spear point blade, dagger) can only be effectively implemented for offensive uses (e.g. Crime, ambush and assassination). Knife fight statistics have shown that the first three moves in any knife fight are slashes. A stabbing knife is therefore only effective in self defense if you can manage to evade a few slashes (not likely) that will inevitably come before you have an oppurtunity to stab.

Therefore, you are much more likely to survive unscathed in a self defense encounter with a blade designed to slash than one designed to stab

Some knives I think would excell in the role of self defense slashing would be:

– Spyderco Civilian: probably the most damage-capable piece of steel for its size on the planet. I would imagine you could easily open a person’s belly with this thing, or sever most of the muscles and tendons in any of their limbs, rendering them unfit for combat in one swift slash. This is my top choice for a folding self defense knife. Just looking at it makes me shiver. Only downside is that it is relatively expensive.

– Cold Steel Rajah II: 6 inch Kukri style blade. I don’t own one but it obviously would be very effective for slashing. The sheer size might scare off attackers. People aren’t used to seeing folding knives with blades larger than larger than 3.5″ *snicker*

If you’re into carrying really large blades, you might also look into the Cold steel Espada XL too. The thing dwarfs anything spyderco or benchmade make.

– Any Hawkbill shaped blade. They are born slashers. enough said. Spyderco SpyderHawk is a good choice. I have the H1 rust-proof Salt version and I carry it whenever I go swimming. Great, light knife. Very useful for EDC tasks too

– Any Karambit shaped blade. They require some training to be combat effective though. I believe some manufacturers even ship a training DVD with their karambits. The Emerson Super Karambit was designed for use by Navy SEALs and the British SAS. It is very pricy though.

– Recurve blade shapes. Benchmade 710 and Emerson Commander are exemplary. Recurves are good slashers and also can be can primarily be used as EDCs. If I could only. Carry one knife for EDC and SD, my BM 710 In M390 steel would be the one.

Hope it helped. Remember not to do anything you will regret. Only use your knife if you are sure your life or others’ are in danger

Good luck. I hope you will never have to be an a self defense situation, but if you are, you will be prepared.
