Folding Hunter

The folding hunter pocket knife, as it is known today, typically is a lockback, single blade folding knife. The closed length usually ranges from the extremely pocket-friendly 3 in. to the more commonly known 5 in. Buck’s original lockback knife was originally marketed as a “folding hunting knife” in 1964, and while it became popular with sportsmen it saw use with military personnel as it could perform a wide variety of tasks. It was the first time a pocket knife was marketed to be as strong in use as a fixed blade knife.

The handle commonly has a hand grip-friendly slight curve with the lockback release on the opposite bolster of the blade. The knife is usually capped by metal bolsters, often brass.
