Buck Knives is pleased to announce the recent signing of renowned rock & roll guitarist and lifelong outdoorsman, Ted Nugent, to their Pro staff.

Nugent is known by many for his rock and roll contributions, as well as his significant stance on our First and Second Amendment rights. His show, Ted Nugent Spirit of the Wild, can be seen exclusively on the Outdoor Channel.

"I take pride in being able to use and carry products made in the USA. Buck knives allow me that opportunity," said Nugent. "Chuck and CJ Buck are longtime friends and it is great to be a part of the Buck Knives team."

In addition to his music career and serving on the Board of Directors of the NRA since 1995, Nugent, along with his wife, Shemane, annually host several hunts for sick and terminally ill children working with Hunt of a Lifetime, Hunt for a Cure, and Kamp for Kids. Buck Knives is honored to be the knife of choice for Nugent as he embarks on these worthy and rewarding journeys.

"Ted Nugent's dedication to preservation and American-made products is a natural fit for us," said Bob George, Director of Sales and Marketing for Buck Knives. "I know Ted will be a great ambassador for Buck Knives. We are excited to add another person on board that is committed to creating a lasting legacy for our future generations and to be associated with such a devoted patriot like him. Buck Knives is proud to once again be a member of the Ted Nation!"

Nugent has been named favorite Hunting Personality by the readers of Outdoors Magazine. He was inducted into the National Bowhunters Hall of Fame, marking the pinnacle of recognition for Nugent as a bona fide Bowhunting Legend of the 21st Century, acknowledged for his skills as an outdoorsman, and for his tireless promotion of bowhunting via his writings for over 40 publications, his New York Times best-sellers Ted, White & Blue: The Nugent Manifesto and God, Guns and Rock 'n' Roll, along with Kill It and Grill It, BloodTrails and BloodTrails II, and his award-winning Ted Nugent Spirit of the Wild television show-seen exclusively on Outdoor Channel-where he proudly serves as Ambassador for the network.
