Hunters and Gatherers: Meet Your New Favorite Knife

Buck just turned its iconic hunting knife into a switchblade

Outside of Michael Jackson dance-offs, there are actually practical reasons for owning a pushbutton switchblade.

If you’ve ever waded through a roaring river with a snagged rod in one hand and needed to cut the line with the other, you know the score.

It’s just that we never expected Buck Knives — the hallmark gear of Eagle Scouts and bucolic grandpas — to introduce one. Especially not to their 110 Folding Hunter Knife, the brand’s first-ever folding knife that’s Americana as apple pie.

Many folks have tinkered with the 110 to make it automatic, but this is the first time the heritage brand has released one of its own. And it’s made with the same sturdy steel and dymondwood that’s made the original so damn timeless. The big difference: the blade snaps open with a simple push of a button. 

It may set you back $200, but you’ll wanna hit up Buck Knives to stay updated on its release. 

Because grabbing one of these for yourself should be automatic.
