Buck Knives 110 Folding Hunter - 50th Anniversary Edition

This year marks a half century for the Buck Knives' best selling model, the locked-blade 110 Folding Hunter. "We make 7,000 to 8,000 of them a day, here in the USA," says Chuck Buck. Its signature look – hardwood handle capped by brass bolsters, with a 3 ¾" blade – is almost identical to the one you might have seen your father hold, minus the anniversary badging. It's heavy (7.2 oz.), but ultra-sturdy; buy one to hand down, or just to hold onto until the 100th anniversary model arrives in another 50 years. [$73; buckknives.com]
