The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
WE ARE STARTING THIS DISCUSSION SO THAT EACH OF OUR MEMBERS WHO WANTS TO PARTICIPATE CAN SEND A FEW WORDS OF CONDOLENCE OR SOME MEMORIES TO THE BUCK FAMILY. SOME OF US HAVE MEMORIES OF MEETING CHUCK BUCK. SOME OF US NEVER HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO MEET HIM BUT HIS KNIVES HAVE BROUGHT MUCH MEANING INTO OUR LIVES. EVEN THE LITTLE CARD WITH JOHN 3:16 PRINTED ON IT THAT WAS PACKAGED IN EVERY BUCK KNIFE WE PURCHASED HAD MEANING TO SOME.
TYPE YOUR MESSAGES HERE AND WE WILL PRINT THEM AND SEND THEM TO THE BUCK FAMILY FROM iKnifeCollector AND FROM EACH OF US PERSONALLY.
THANK YOU AND MAY GODSPEED MR. BUCK.
Thanks for your contribution Chuck.
I was never honored to meet Chuck in person but I send my condolences to the Buck family. Nice products and message sent with each.
I really appreciate Mr. Buck's contribution to both the knife community AND the business community. In this day and age, the term "gentleman" is often a lost one...but nevertheless one that applies to Mr. Buck. The world is a lesser place without his mortal presence. May God bless the Buck family and grant them the peace of knowing that Mr. Buck is truly at home in the presence of the Lord.
I never met the man but his classic Buck 110 was my introduction into locking folding knives and I still own my first one to this day. It was probably the second knife I ever owned, the first being an old Swiss army knife of some sort I got as a Cub Scout but I've had this 110 for over 40 years now. So he was my introduction into the hobby I enjoy so much today.
Blessings on the Buck family....
I never met Mr. Buck but I have several Buck knives. I really appreciate the card with each knife that has John 3:16 on it. In fact that is the reason I bought my first Buck. I had to make a choice between it and two other brands and the card was the reason I chose Buck. And I never regretted the choice.
From all I have read and heard about him, Mr. Buck was a fine Christian gentleman. I can think on no higher praise for any man.
I pray that the Lord will uplift and comfort the entire Buck family..
I never met CHUCK "in person" but he was one to never say no to a fella knife nerd!.
..i sent him a small Buck ..OUT OF RESPECT I WILL GET THE CAMERA OUT AND POST PICS!... i just wanted to say at this time-...i wrote him..asked about the knife..he said "SURE JUST SEND IT IN"..few weeks later came back blade signed and dated like i asked!.. SIMPLY AWESOME!
ONE THE KNIFE WORLD WILL SURELY MISS!!! GOD BLESS YOU SIR! HEAVEN AWAITS!
I started two groups on the iKnifeCollector.com website; Buck Knives Group and Stockman Pattern Group. My favorite knife company and my favorite knife pattern. I have a Buck 301 Stockman in my pocket right now, and have carried a 301 Stockman since I was around12/13 years old. (even to school !!!) I never met Chuck but always admired his Christian faith and his American work ethic to make the best product he could and at a fair price. I have been to the El Cajon, CA factory four times and had taken the tour of the factory each time. What a legacy he has left behind for his family and friends and employees. He will be greatly missed and I certainly will be seeing him one day in the Heavens....
I had the opportunity to meet Chuck at Smokey Mtn. Knife Works back in 1995...I had my oldest son with me and we bought two knives that Chuck signed. A most knowledgeable and kind man who took time to chat and thank us for being appreciated customers.
Sincere sympathy to the Buck family and all those close to Chuck...

I never had the opportunity to me Chuck Buck but I did have the pleasure of working with the Buck management while producing a line of knives for them under private label and while not actually meeting Chuck, his commitment to quality and a God fearing management style made an impression on me that I'll never forget.
He'll be missed
my prayers ware with him and his family
