Buck Knives Introduces Three New Lux® Framelocks

POST FALLS, IDAHO– Buck Knives brings a new blend of slimline elegance and performance features to gentlemen’s knives with their new series of three lightweight Lux framelock folders. All three have a 2-1/2-inch drop-point blade, with a blade flipper for smooth one-hand opening.

The solid frame lock ensures safety in use and results in a sleek, slim handle, with less weight than linerlocks. For carrying options, it has a removable deep-pocket clip. As the newest additions to Buck’s “good-better-best” pricing, the Lux series offers choices of steels and handles.

Top-of-the-line 016 Lux Pro has a titanium-coated S30V stainless steel blade, and the attractive handle is textured stainless steel, coated with carbon fiber and titanium. With its thinner body it has a different look and feel, and weighs only 3.3 oz. MSRP is $125.

With all the same basic features, the 015 Lux Avid has a titanium-coated blade made of 13C26 Sandvik steel, and a titanium-coated stainless steel handle. MSRP, $75. Again providing all the key benefits, the 014 Lux Select has a blade made of Buck’s time-tested 420HC steel, and the handle, with its own distinctive design, is titanium-coated stainless steel. MSRP, $57.50. Both of these weigh just 2.9 oz.

Of course, in keeping with Buck’s American Commitment, all three of the Lux models are made in the USA, and they are backed by Buck’s Forever Warranty.

Buck Knives Adds Buck/Hood Hoodlum Survival Knife

POST FALLS, IDAHO– The addition of respected survival authority Ron Hood to their Pro Staff has made it possible for Buck to add the Model 060 Buck/Hood Hoodlum to their growing role in the survival field. It’s the ultimate survival knife; a knife that can do anything you need to do, no matter how large or small the task.

Hood, with more than 20 years of teaching accredited college courses in survival skills, devoted years to developing, field testing and perfecting the Hoodlum. Now his design and Buck’s quality standards are joined in this production model. It’s light enough to carry in a sheath (14.6 oz.) yet heavy-duty enough for any task in the wilderness.

Overall, it’s 15-1/2″ long, with a full 10″ blade, made of 5160 spring steel, large enough and tough enough for chopping wood, yet it has a large choil for control in detailed uses. This versatile tool also has a groove in the blade backbone for everything from scoring bone and bending wire to removing pots from the campfire.

The Micarta® handle has an integrated hammer and lanyard hole in the butt-end, and has a Shock Mitigation System (SMS) to alleviate shock and wasted energy, even in the most demanding uses. The handle also can be removed to create a spear by lashing a branch to the tang. The Hoodlum comes with a M.O.L.L.E.-compatible, heavy-duty black nylon sheath with a front storage pouch. MSRP is $230.

Sypderco, Stag Arms Announce Knives

New Britain, CT –Stag Arms is proud to partner with Spyderco Knives to produce a limited edition Manix2 with Stag Arms engraving and custom configuration. The Manix2 is a fully ambidextrous knife which allows the opening, carrying, and closing of the knife either right or left-handed. The Manix2 is made in the USA at Spyderco’s Golden, Colorado factory of USA made steel and components. The Spyderco Stag Arms Manix2 is a great knife to show your Stag pride.

The Spyderco Manix2 has enjoyed a welcome reception since its release in early 2010. A new Manix2, exclusive to Stag Arms, an industry leader in rifle manufacturing, features a black-coated blade, black liners, and a black pocket clip complimented with Stag Arms signature dark green G-10 handle scales.

Coated with DLC (diamond-like coating), the non-reflective, plain edge blade is Crucible CPM-S30V steel and is full flat ground with aggressive thumb serrations (jimping) and an oversized 14mm Spyderco Round Hole. Retaining a non-reflective focus, the handle screws, liners, and tip-up, right/left reversible pocket clip are also blackened.

The Stag Arms Manix2 features an exceptionally strong lock called the Ball Bearing Lock. It operates with a free-floating ball bearing contained in a custom-engineered high-tech polymer cage. The spherical ball bearing allows the lock to self adjust across a large surface, smoothly and consistently locking up with solid confidence.

Nested inside the dark green G-10 handle scales are blackened, skeletonized dual steel liners for increased rigidity and strength without unneeded weight. The liners are scalloped, extending slightly beyond the handle scales creating textured jimping around a large portion of the handle’s perimeter.

The Stag Arms Manix2 showcases the commitment to innovation and quality both Spyderco and Stag Arms offer, in an undeniably unique folder collaboration. For more information, see www.stagarms.com or contact Stag Arms at 860-229-9994.
