Buck Knives
Ergonomic design improves hunting performance.

The Family Traditions series of knives have a new, innovative design exclusive to comfort and control for hunters needing a reliable skinning knife. The design is based on the primary gripping positions during use, to reduce hand fatigue and increase performance.

The skinner style blade has a generous belly design that is perfect for skinning applications, and is S30V steel for added strength and edge retention. The handle is Alcryn® Rubber with Rosewood Dyamondwood® insets for a sure grip in any condition.

PakLite Guthook
Lightweight, compact and convenient. The PakLite Guthook is a great accessory for any hunter, offering durability and reliability for field dressing small or large game. The design has been modified to improve performance by increasing the width of the cutting edge to enable one to cut through a thicker hide. The PakLite Guthook is intended to be a great companion to your favorite skinning knife.

Family Traditions
Originally designed in collaboration with Haley Heath as the first line of knives created specifically for female field use, the Family Traditions Adrenaline Series has expanded to include a knife for all hunters. The entire line of knives is backed with our patented ergonomic handle, like none other in the market. Haley's preferred knives (088, 085, 588 and 585) are offered in fun colors and she helped redesign the knives to include a recurved handle for a safer grip, and a finger guard at the bottom of the blade. All knives in the Family Traditions Adrenaline Series are available at KnifeCenter and have options in S30V or 420HC stainless steel.

Family Traditions with Haley Heath® is popular show on the Sportsman Channel offering an inside look to a growing demographic – Families that hunt together. In a crazy world where spending time with family takes a back seat to providing for one, Family Traditions with Haley Heath® shows us how accomplishing both at the same time is possible.

From deep-sea fishing to exotic big game hunts, Haley and G.O. Heath travel the world with their young children in search of the next adventure. Each show depicts a great knowledge of the outdoors while highlighting a love for nature, archery and firearm hunting.
