Buck Knives: All In The Family

Buck Knives’ roots trace back to 1902, when 13-year-old blacksmith apprentice Hoyt Buck developed a method of heat-treating steel so that hoes and other tools would hold their edges better. But the business wasn’t launched until more than four decades later, when Hoyt and his son, Al, started handcrafting knives. Hoyt’s grandson, Chuck, began helping out when he was a teenager. Now 75, Chuck is company chairman, and his own son and grandson work for Buck Knives. We spoke with Chuck Buck after touring the knifemaker’s Post Falls facility/Michael Guilfoil, SR. More here. (Kathy Plonka's SR photo: Chuck Buck says Buck Knives has sold “close to 20 million” of its most popular knife, the Model 110)

Question: What kind of a knife to you own?
