If you’re a hunter, fisherman, camper or outdoors enthusiast of just about any kind, you know about Buck Knives. What you may not have known is that they’re made right here in Post Falls, Idaho.
The company’s origins stretch back to 1902 when a young Kansas blacksmith apprentice named Hoyt Buck was looking for a better way to temper steel so it would hold an edge longer. His unique approach produced the first Buck Knife, and many innovations have followed over the years.
And you can see how Buck Knives are made. The company offers tours year-round, free of charge Monday through Thursday at 10:00 a.m., 12 noon, and 2:00 p.m. Children seven-years-old and up are welcome. Tours last about 45 minutes. Fully closed shoes are a must, meaning closed toe and heel – it is a knife factory, after all!
