NEW Hardware! Buck Knives Debuts Ground Combat Knife Collection
Adam Scepaniak 03.05.20
Buck Knives has announced a new series of blades dubbed the Ground Combat Knife Collection. This collection of Ground Combat Knives (GCK) have been tested by some of our military forces, feedback was provided to Buck Knives, and that valuable information was then applied to the final product we see here. Ultimately, these were designed for extreme use, and as a result, they boast impressive strength and durability to meet those demands.
These knives all come with a MOLLE compatible sheath for varying choices in your style of carry. They also boast a blunt handle design for light hammering tasks and additional combative striking functions. Some of the other specifications surrounding these new knives can be read below as presented by Buck Knives:
- Blade: 5 1/2″ Cerakoted 5160 Spring Steel
- Tip: Tanto Style | Spear Point
- Handle: Tri-Colored Canvas Micarta | Black G10
- Sheath: Injection-Molded Polypropylene MOLLE Compatible w/ Multiple Carry Options
With the Ground Combat Knives Collection, you get your pick of a tanto versus spear point blade, tri-colored canvas micarta versus black G10, and they all have Cerakoted blades for extra resistance to corrosion and wear. Chris Brooks, the Director of Brand Management for Buck Knives, also had these words to share on their new GCK knife options:
The Ground Combat Knives were produced to meet the increasing need for a reliable, indestructible knife that can be used for combat and tactical operations but can also cross over as a reliable outdoor utility tool. Each design was field tested by military operatives in the most demanding conditions and that feedback was helpful in the overall design.
Each one of these knives are proudly made in the USA and currently have an MSRP of $130. At the moment, they are not listed on the Buck Knives website to view at this time. According to Buck Knives, they will become available and displayed on their website once all dealer orders are filled. For anyone too far from a Buck Knives dealer to get one in person, very soon you could openly purchase one through their website.
Many of us carry knives everyday with us whether it is a function of our work, or because it is methodically chosen as a tertiary line of defense. The big question is what do you think of this new series of knives? Do you have prior training in knife combat skills? Let us know all of your thoughts in the Comments below!
