Knife Safety


At Buck Knives, we encourage you to use your knife safely.


  • Cut away from your body, not toward it.
  • If you drop your knife, let it fall. Don’t attempt to catch it.
  • Never run with a knife.
  • Don’t throw a knife to anyone. Hand it to them, handle first.
  • Never point a knife at anyone.
  • Do not use a locking blade if the lock will not lock open. Make sure the lock is working before using it.
  • Keep your knife folded or sheathed when carrying or storing.
  • Use a sharpening stone, not a power grinder to sharpen your knife. A power grinder can make the edge brittle and will void the warranty.
  • Use the right tool for the job.
  • Don’t use a knife for prying. It can cause the tip to break, possibly causing injury.
  • Use in a well-lit area, so you can see what you’re doing.
  • Do not use a knife on “live” electrical items like appliances.
  • Keep your knife clean, particularly the locking mechanism.
  • Keep your knife oiled and sharp. A sharp knife is safer than a dull one.
  • Don’t try fixing a Buck knife yourself. It is dangerous and voids the warranty.
  • If you get cut, seek first-aid immediately.
