Famous Buck favorites now featuring genuine ebony handles
Post Falls, ID — Friday, January 4, 2019– Buck Knives, leader in sports cutlery, is excited to partner with Taylor Guitars, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of premium acoustic guitars, and take part in their efforts using a sustainable supply model for genuine Ebony handles on its key heritage products.
As of January 1, 2019, Ebony wood will be offered on the following Buck models:
110 Folding Hunter (standard & finger-grooved)
112 Ranger (standard & finger-grooved)
Ebony wood was originally introduced on the 110 and 112 models in the 1960’s, but in the
1990’s, federal regulations on endangered woods led Buck to utilize resin treated woods.
Harvested under Taylor’s thriving conservation project, Buck will again employ the use
of ebony, a natural material with beautiful grain patterns that provides customers with a
nearly indestructible knife handle.
“We are excited for this opportunity to work with Taylor Guitars,” said Chris Brooks, Director of Brand Management at Buck Knives. “Buck Knives was built on old-fashioned values with a commitment to quality, reliability, and preservation of our resources for future generations. We are excited to help support Taylor’s Ebony Project, one Buck at a time.”
