    Also wondering what Buck has up their sleeve. I expect to see the Compadre bush tools, but I hope there are a few surprises out there!

    Good call, 300Bucks.

    Doesn't hurt to dream too. Like...

    - Small version of Vantage Force line
    - Return of charcoal dyamondwood scales
    - Buck/Tops neck knife
    - Return of the Buck/Wenger series
    - Buck letter opener

    Oh. And I look forward to the new knife designed by a SEAL. :)

    So true, BuckTool. I still need to pick up the Liaison.

    I'm thinking more along the lines of what you posted yesterday here in the forums--something like the Buck/Hood Boot Knife. Would love a belt (kydex?) carry option on a small fixed neck knife from Buck.

    Oh wow. A folding drop point in s30v and rosewood. Also looks like choice of thermoplastic scales for budget minded buyers. Pictures all have the website's water mark and I don't want to break forum rules. Jim

    A few from the 2015 line:

    The new 119 & boot knife:

    Automatic:

    "The 898 Impact springs open with the slide of a button, readying the S30V steel blade for quick action. The button lock style keeps the knife locked open and closed to prevent accidental deployment. The aluminum handle has a texture inlay which secures the grip, while offering a lightweight material." Quote courtesy of ammoland.

    Bushcrafter:

    image.jpg
    "Named after the rugged Selkirk Mountain range beginning in the Northern Panhandle of Idaho, the 863 Selkirk is a midsized survival knife with added features to help maximize survival in rugged and tough conditions. In addition to the 420HC steel blade, the Selkirk features a Micarta handle with steel bolsters (rear bolster can be used as an improvised hammer), and a heavy duty belt sheath that can be configured for horizontal or vertical carry. Included with the sheath is a fire starter/whistle tool." (bold added by me) Quote courtesy of Ammoland.
