Buck Knives

A young Kansas blacksmith apprentice named Hoyt Buck was looking for a better way to temper steel so it would hold an edge longer. His unique approach produced the first Buck knife in 1902.

When Buck approached Mint to assist in redefining their brand, we drew on this strong origin story to inform the new mark, using the anvil as an icon to emphasize the quality craftsmanship that made Buck famous.
