Buck Knives just released a whole new line of blades, dubbed the Ground Combat collection. Field tested by military operators in demanding conditions, the new line features knives with both tanto and spear point blades.
Buck Ground Combat Knives Details
Designed for use in harsh environments, the Ground Combat Knives (GCK) offer strength and durability. The use of 5160 spring steel increases blade toughness, level of ductility and fatigue resistance, according to Buck. Field tested in the most demanding conditions, these mission-ready tools deliver impressive functionality. They come in tricolored canvas Micarta or black G10 handles. The GCK Spear Point and GCK Tanto feature 5.5-inch steel blades with a Cerakote coating. Also, the blunt handle design enables light hammering tasks and additional combat functions. Each blade comes with an injection molded polypropylene MOLLE compatible sheath with multiple carry 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,” said Chris Brooks, Director of Brand Management for Buck Knives. “Each design was field tested by military operatives in the most demanding conditions and that feedback was helpful in the overall design.”
