Buck Knives has added survival instructor Ron Hood to their growing Pro Staff, bringing new focus on a key aspect of the knife market. This new agreement also will incorporate Hood’s skills as a knife designer, working with Buck in the development of new survival/tactical knives.
Hood has taught courses at UCLA, and has produced and published numerous award winning survival training videos. He has been featured on many TV shows and assisted with the training that goes on behind the Man vs. Wild TV show on Discovery Channel. He also has taught many military operatives the skills they need to survive in harsh outdoor conditions, based on first-hand knowledge and skills from his days in the Military Intelligence Community while in the Army Security Agency.
Hood says he bought his first Buck knife when he returned from Vietnam in 1967.
