The legendary BuckMaster 184 Survival Knife was conceived and designed specifically for the Navy SEAL Team in the 1980s. It is a masterpiece created by CJ Buck (CEO of Buck Knives) and designed by a small company, Qual-A-Tec, in 1981 in California. The BuckMaster became the American icon of survuval knives in the 1980s and contributed to the development of the famous M9 bayonetta of the American army. The production was 2600 specimens per year.

Notes: The patented feature is the presence of two removable screw-on hooks / hooks. The function of these is simple to anchor. This knife can in fact be used as a throwing hook by fixing a rope to the ring on the knob. The manufacturer guarantees a tightness of the harpoons up to 600 pounds. The Seals of the Navy, specifically, had requested a knife that could be used underwater to be able to anchor the means to an underwater fixing point, and this is the reason for the total steel construction.
