The 106 Compadre Axe is among the Compadre Series of outdoor tools that boasts the latest in design and innovation. The 5160 steel and ergonomic handle design combine to create a chipping and game prep tool suitable for a wide array of outdoor activities. It also comes with a compact and durable black leather sheath. Designed for outdoor use, the Compadre Axe is forward weighted to make the task of chopping easier. It features an attractive Micarta handle which is comfortable to use one-handed or two-handed. To complete the project the Buck design team added a Cerakote Cobalt coating that not only adds style, but also aids in the prevention of rust and corrosion.
The steel behind the blades
Buck is a market leader in edge retention thanks to their steel selections and heat treat process pioneered by Paul Bos, whose heat treating system has proven to the best in the business. Each blade is put through a rigorous heat treat process and quality performance test then is tempered to the appropriate Rockwell Hardness through a heating, freezing and reheating system. This process, along with attention to detail through grinding and hand edging, is the foundation of Buck’s Edge2X technology. This gives you longer edge life, ease of resharpening and a blade that will not fail you.
Commonly known as spring steel, 5160 has excellent shock absorbing properties making it resilient to shattering and extremely durable as a knife steel. Buck hardens 5160 to Rc 57-58 to maximize its performance.
Taking a century’s worth of knife craftsmanship to an unprecedented level, Buck’s Pro Level knives are designed and crafted to be used in the most demanding situations. Premium materials and revolutionary designs are combined with the highest quality American craftsmanship. The result is a superior knife that discerning users can rely on in any situation. Designed and handcrafted in the USA.
