POST FALLS, IDAHO– When a 110 Folding Hunter rolled off the production line at Buck Knives on Friday, Oct. 29, it was the millionth knife made this year.
“We’re breaking records,” said Phil Duckett, Buck’s chief operating officer. “It’s awesome, and we still have two months to go.”
Another positive sign of growth has been the addition of 40 new employees this year, bringing Buck’s total workforce to 250 in their Post Falls, Idaho, plant.
“This is a testament to our commitment to making our products in America,” Duckett said. “The troops on the floor worked hard to get us to these impressive numbers.”
