Buck Knife Factory

DSC00383  DSC00379

Buck Knife was located in Post Falls, Id.  They built a new factory here 5 years ago after relocating from California.  The tour takes about 30 min. and gives you a good idea of how they are made.  It starts with the shaping of the blade in many different sizes  and how the steel is tempered.  They still make most of these knives by hand and they hand sharpen each one of them.  The knives are custom made and are shipped all over the world.


This guy will greet you in the lobby.
