We at Browning think of him more as “genius” or “master craftsman.” Since teaming up with Browning he has raised the level of function, design and overall class of the entire line of Browning knives to levels never before thought possible.
And the specific knives he has designed and built are among the finest ever made — in the world.
One of the reasons is Buck knife has been creating quality knives for over 100 years, so they know what they are doing. You want a knife to be very sturdy to withstand a battery of abuse, but you don’t want it too heavy where you don’t have control over your cuts.You want a knife to hold its sharpness, which Buck Knife does.Knives date back to our ancient ancestors when they sharpened stones and used them as knives, so as you know a knife is nothing new.As time has gone on more and more manufacturers have come out of the woodwork to create their own version of a knife. If you ask someone who makes one of the best knives on the market, you will no doubt have people say the Buck Knife. There is a lot that goes into a design of a knife such as quality of materials, ergonomics and more. You'll miss the quality of he good ol knife you had for so many years, over the new one. I went to buy a Buck for my 12 year old and decided the Quality was no longer there... I always recommend Buck when people are on a budget but want a good knife that will last them. Well back in August 2011, I broke my Buck Model#119 while chopping some dry oak to get a fire started, I have had this knife since 1976.for it with lawn mowing money.
It's an amazing blade at an even more amazing price. I have several Ka-Bar's (a couple 7" Tanto's, BK3 beater, standard USMC and a small "skinning" stainless blade that I'm completely unimpressed with), and they gather dust now. Buck and Esee warranty are probably among the best in the business. The Buck 110 and 119 always will hold a special place in my heart. It's an amazing blade at an even more amazing price. I have several Ka-Bar's (a couple 7" Tanto's, BK3 beater, standard USMC and a small "skinning" stainless blade that I'm completely unimpressed with), and they gather dust now.35 years of use and the blade broke, sent it off to the good folks at Buck with high hopes..and behold they sent me a brand new knife and sheath! No questions asked, talk about a "forever warranty"...these folks will have my business for years to come. I don’t know if Russ Kommer would call himself a “celebrity.” We doubt it.He would probably be more comfortable with “friend” or “good guy”.This classically handsome blade is built to last through heavy use and extreme conditions, even coming with a forever warranty to prove it!
