Filson Launches Collaboration with Buck Knives
September 1, 2020
SEATTLE, Wash. (Sept. 1, 2020)– Filson and Buck Knives, two iconic American heritage brands, announced today a limited-edition collection of branded knives designed for a life lived outdoors.
“We’re thrilled to partner with a likeminded brand that shares a deep and rich history outfitting the outdoorsman,” said Doug Thielen, Director of Marketing at Filson. “By utilizing signature Filson materials and the craftsmanship of Buck Knives, our teams developed dependable, ‘Made in America’ products that we stand behind.”
“We are excited to partner with Filson to create exclusive new offerings based on our Compadre Series Camp Axe and Knife. Using Filson’s patented tin cloth material on the handle and Buck’s use of premium Cerakote® blade coatings, these handcrafted tools perfectly reflect the style and performance you would expect from two heritage companies sharing similar values,” said Mike Silverberg, Vice President of Sales for Buck Knives.
The collection features a Filson x Buck 106 Compadre Axe, Filson x Buck 104 Compadre Knife, and a 110 Folding Hunter Pro Knife featuring proven Filson materials.
Filson x Buck 106 Compadre Axe– MSRP: $175 – Designed for rugged, outdoor use, the Compadre Axe is forward weighted to make chopping easier. The full tang 5160 spring steel goes throughout the entire 12 ¾” (32.4 cm) axe, giving it excellent shock absorption and strength you can rely on. The 3” (7.6 cm) cutting edge excels at chopping but also works well for detailed work. Cerakote Blaze Orange coating gives you added durability and corrosion resistance. The ergonomic handle features Filson’s famous Tin Cloth, that provides a comfortable grip. The knife includes a made in the USA leather sheath by Buck, so you can keep your axe at your side or safely in your pack.
Filson x Buck 104 Compadre Knife– MSRP: $150 – The Compadre Camp Knife from Buck Knives® is a do-everything knife for the outdoorsman, whether it’s splitting kindling or building a shelter. Because the drop-point, hollow-ground blade is made with tough, malleable 5160 spring steel, it resists chipping and sharpens easily. The full-tang blade is wrapped with rugged Tin Cloth handle scales, and the Cerakote® ceramic coating protects the blade from rust.
Filson x Buck 110 Folding Hunter Pro Knife– MSRP: $130 – The 110 Folding Hunter Pro joins the ranks of the classic and traditional Buck favorite, the 110 Folding Hunter. The first Folding Hunter was created in 1963 and still today is one of America’s best selling knives. The Pro version delivers the same expectations you’ve come to have from the original 110, but with a different, updated look. The clip point blade is Cerakote black coated 420HC steel while the handle is olive Micarta with brass bolsters.
The Filson x Buck knife collection is now available online at Filson.com.
