Two major projects collided last week in Salt Lake City, where the twice-annual Outdoor Retailer Trade Show took place. We had six editors and reporters on the scene to make daily reports and hunt for the best to-be-released gear for 2015.
The circumstance included a rendezvous at the Buck Knives booth and a cameo from Cabela’s video team to capture content for our ‘Day Of The Knife’ project. We grabbed a short video (see below) and took a closer look at the Buck Knives line.
Most impressive were the “skeletal” blades Buck showed off (see the video) and its new Compadre Series of blades. We covered the Compadre is a preview post last month, “‘Red Steel’ Series Coming From Buck Knives.”
In the hand at the Buck booth, the solid, wood-handled Compadre pieces proved to be among the most impressive blades at OR. My favorite was the machete-like chopping froe above.
