"Just my personal opinion.
I think the Remington ~ BUCK partnership is a winning combination. Both possess iconic names in the outdoorsman / hunter / sportsman arena. When it comes to business .. predictions are .. difficult @ best. In the real…"
"I am thrilled that the Bullet will be made in Bucks US factory. It is an iconic knife and keeping production here is a great way to honor that. Many of the companies now are producing here and abroad. it is as they say, the wave of the future. As…"
"Thanks Jan for bringing that to my attention. I referenced China in error, I should have said import. I am sure a firm like Buck has an excellent quality control that will only let the finest knives pass. I would also like to see an american made…"
"Though I seriously collect US-made Bucks, I also own a couple of import Bucks and can find no fault in them other than them not being domestic, same with Taylor-made Schrades. For that matter I can't remember ever seeing a Rough Rider I would…"

"Hmm, well I don't know if I would consider Buck as "mega", but I expect the quality will be more consistent, and I'm sure they have more advertising punch & a larger customer base. As I'm sure you suspect, B &…"
"I honestly do not know, I read a lot about the issued Bullet and the reviews were very inconsistent. Some great quality, some fair and some poor. Taking on Remington is a large project and maybe it is better suited for a mega…"
"I did indeed have a chance to speak with Buck Knives today and I am VERY excited about their vision for this partnership.
The collectors club has not been decided at this point. The focus has been on an independent line of knives produced by…"
Lou you would really enjoy meeting Ken at Bear, not just him but his whole company, they are like a large family. They just had their annual community sell. You can get some real bargains.Ken and the Bear factory worker's are a very good example of what we call Southern hospitality. I have some nice Bear knives as well as a few Remington's.
