Pattern: Model 110¦ Folding Hunter
The 110 Folding Hunter- A traditional favorite! Buck’s Folding Hunter was created in 1963 when Al Buck decided that a revolutionary lockblade knife was needed by outdoorsmen who wanted a sturdy knife but did not want to carry a long fixed-blade knife. He was right and the result proved to be the key to the company’s future. The challenge was to combine the strengths of other folding knives with locking mechanisms into a good-looking, reliable product. It wasn’t easy, but after a series of refinements, the Model 110 was unveiled. Within six months, this innovation was the hottest knife in the industry. The Folding Hunter, after over 50 years, is still one of America’s best-selling knives.
The 2011 NKCA Club Knife is made by Buck, in a Model 110 single blade lockback pattern. The handles are fool’s gold mica pearl custom made by Michael Prater & Co from Painted Pony Knives, and the front side handle has the round NKCA shield. This knife features a stainless blade, brass pins, liners, and bolsters. The blade is etchedœNKCA 2011 Club Knife.
