Overview

Hoyt Buck’s first knife, made from a worn-out file blade in 1902, was a fixed blade. This design later transformed into the iconic 119 Special. The U.S. Government requested blade donations for the military after the attack on Pearl Harbor. It is then, in the basement of a church in 1942, that Hoyt Buck began making knives by hand. It was a design that was dialed in after 40 years of making knives to customer specifications.

This RMEF edition 119 Special features a Cherrywood handle with “TEAM ELK” and RMEF logo. Includes a polyester sheath.

Buck Knives proudly supports the mission of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF) in their efforts to ensure the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and our hunting heritage. Founded in 1984, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation ow has over 500 chapters across the country.

Available Features and Options

420HC Steel

This is Buck's standard blade material because it 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.

Clip

The crescent tip makes the blade thinner with a sharper point. This shape provides good control for detail work and cutting in tight places. It is also well suited for intentional punctures like new holes in your belt, etc. While the point of the blade is effective for detail work, it's not as strong as the thicker points on drop points and skinners.
