From the time Hoyt Buck made his first knife in 1902, Buck Knives' goal always has been the same: make knives that will serve the user better, with reliable and superior performance. In the 110 years since, Buck Knives has found many ways to create an expanding line of knives that guarantee exceptional quality, with the needed features and benefits. Now they are finalizing plans for the SHOT Show where they will unveil more advances in 2012, as they celebrate their 110th Birthday with innovative new products.

Among their new departures is an appealing answer to the growing demand for women's hunting knives with their new Haley Heath ErgoHunter Adrenaline Series. As the number of active female hunters has doubled in the past decade, and now totals more than 3 million, there is a growing demand for knives to meet their needs and preferences.

The Haley Heath series was developed in partnership with one of America's most accomplished female hunters. In the joint announcement, Haley Heath said, "I am excited to be the first female featured with her own line of hunting knives and from the number-one brand in hunting." Haley and G.O. Heath are the hosts of the popular "Family Traditions with Haley Heath" television program on the Sportsman Channel.

There are eight basic knives in the Haley Heath series – five fixed-blades and three folding lockblades, offering fixed guthook versions and three steel options. All are ergonomically designed for the best grip for women, including a grooved handle and a finger guard at the bottom of the blade.

"This important series is just one aspect of our new 2012 knife line," said CJ Buck, president and the fourth generation of America's No. 1 knifemaking family. "We are adding other new hunting knives, of course, as well as tactical/survival knives, knives for campers and hikers, and our annual line of Limited Edition knives with so much appeal to collectors."

Among the additions to Buck's growing line of tactical/survival knives will be the TOPS/Buck CSAR-T Liaison® neck knife, a style popular for its light weight, small size and ease of carry, yet providing the solid blade needed quickly in emergency situations.

Buck also emphasized that Buck Knives will continue to fulfill its American Commitment, further reducing the use of offshore outsourcing, making all of their hunting knives in their Post Falls, Idaho, plant as well as the vast majority of their other new products.
