At the 2021 OR Show in Denver, Colorado, Buck Knives showcased two new knives for Everyday Carry (EDC) that can fit any budget and are perfect for outdoor enthusiasts to have in their backpacks.
The Budgie is a small, lightweight knife with a 2″ blade made from S35VN steel, meaning it will retain its edge and can be resharpened for long life. The resin laminate G10 handle is tough, durable, and suited for extreme environments. The Budgie features a frame lock and features a pocket clip and a lanyard hole.
The Onset is a larger knife with a 3-3/8″ blade that is made from S45VN steel, a newer stainless that has improved corrosion and wear resistance over other leading steels. It features a G10 outer handle with a frame-lock inner handle, a channeled lock arm that moves inward to lock against the blade when it’s open.
