The 110 Folding Hunter is a classic and 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. 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.
Rather than reinvent the wheel, the team at Ed Brown’s took a classic knife made in the USA, and had our master engraver cut the same pattern into four places on the handle, identical to the scroll work found on our Signature 1911. The result is a classic looking, hand-engraved knife, which makes the perfect pairing with our signature edition 1911. If the Signature edition 1911 is beyond your price range, here is a chance to own a functional and classic piece, engraved by our master engraver, for much less of an investment. Makes for a perfect gift, award, next-generation heirloom, etc. Includes a genuine leather knife sheath.
Blade Material: 420HC Steel. This blade material approaches the wear resistance of high carbon alloys while delivering the corrosion resistance of chromium stainless steels. Add our exclusive heat-treat process and you have a very user-friendly combination of superior corrosion resistance with excellent strength for wear resistance and durability. You also have a blade that is easy to resharpen. For best performance we harden to a Rockwell hardness of Rc 58.
