Rugged, reliable tactical/survival knives are a must-own for many knife users but, realistically, some are priced a little out of reach. Buck Knives now provides an affordable answer with their impressive series of four reliable Bones durable knives, all with suggested retail prices under $40.
All four have a modified tanto blade made of Buck's time-tested 420HC steel for corrosion resistance. The stainless steel handles feature a skeletal design for less weight without sacrificing solid strength They have an integrated lanyard hole and a removable tip-up carry clip.
The two larger 870 Bones models have a 3" blade, partially serrated for added cutting power. With a Tiger Stripe camo blade and handle, the MSRP is $39. The same knife with a Black Oxide blade and handle has a $34 MSRP. Both are 4-5/8" closed and weigh just 4.4 oz.
For those who prefer a more compact knife, the two smaller 869 Bones models have a 2-1/8" blade, with no serrations. With a Tiger Stripe camo handle and blade, the MSRP is $28. The same knife with a Black Oxide handle/blade finish has a $23 MSRP. This smaller model is 3-1/8" closed and weighs only1.8 oz.
