Where are Buck Knives made? In the USA? Overseas in China? How do I tell?

We get asked a lot “What do you have made in the USA?” We love that question and are happy to support domestic production with our Made in USA gifts and promotional items.

Custom engraved Buck Knives are one of many items and brands we carry that are proudly made in USA.


Many Buck Knives are made in their Idaho plant, and some Buck Knives are made overseas – how do you tell which Buck knives are made in the USA, which ones are made in China?


Update in 2018: Today, Buck makes 80% of their knives in Idaho, USA, and 20% overseas. They continue to work hard to bring more and more production to the United States.


Here’s our handy list, with many of the common Buck Knife models. This is not a comprehensive list, but may get you started. Wondering about a knife not here? Send us an email and we’ll let you know.


If you find this list helpful, please share it on your social networks and support Made in USA items!

Remember that any Buck Knife carries with it Buck’s famous Forever Warranty, and we find that Buck Knives made in China still have superb quality and durability.

      Good question Nathan!
      You can find the limited edition knives on Buck’s website. If you find one you like, and you want it customized, you can send it to us to engrave.
      Good luck!
