New “Pursuit” Hunting Knives from Buck

Buck Knives has just announced a new line of hunting knives, dubbed the Pursuit line and billed as “a multi-purpose alternative to traditional hunting knives.” What’s that all about? Let’s dive it and find out.

First off, yes they are all made in the USA. Pursuit knives include both folders and fixed-blade knives “designed for beginner to serious hunters.”

From the press release:

A multi-purpose alternative to traditional hunting knives, the Pursuit Series features a variety of competitively-priced knives available in fixed and folding versions with standard or guthook blades in 420HC steel. Added detail was put into the design creating a comfortable, non-slip profile. Designed for excellent performance, the Pursuit Series line is a perfect field option. The three fixed and folding versions include a black polyester sheath with green trim.

All knives in the Pursuit Series line feature blades finished with Buck’s advanced Edge2x™ technology that makes them sharper out of the box, hold an edge longer, and easier to re-sharpen. All are made in the USA and backed by Buck’s respected Forever Warranty.

Thumb studs on the folders should make them easy to open one-handed, and they’re slim enough that pocket carry could be a good option, although each includes a polyester belt sheath.

It’ll be interesting to see how these work in the field. The handles look like they’ll do okay when slick with fat and blood, but you never can tell until you try. What do you think of them?
