The Buck Compadre Froe was designed and engineered for the outdoor enthusiast.

A popular design for heavy field use, the Compadre Froe is perfect for chopping, clearing, splitting and batoning work.

Brand new, direct from Buck Knives.

Blade: The thick spine of the Compadre Froe is maintained all the way to the blunt tip for optimal durability which also adds forward weight for enhanced chopping performance. The saber grind of the 9.5" blade can handle the heaviest chopping tasks with ease while the downward cant of the blade increases force transfer for more efficient chopping. 5160 spring steel is tough with good edge retention and the Cobalt Cerakote coating offers corrosion resistance and a discreet, non-reflective finish.

Handle: Heavy duty hardware attaches the contoured, natural canvas Micarta handle scales to the full tang blade. The handles are simple, durable and comfortable with good traction and subtle swells that allow for one- and two-handed chopping. Micarta is durable and impervious to the elements.

Carries via the included black leather belt sheath with stainless steel attachment ring.

5160 Carbon Spring Steel: 5160 Alloy Steel, also sold as AISI 5160, is a high carbon and chromium spring steel. It offers excellent toughness and high ductility. 5160 is commonly used in the automotive industry in heavy spring applications, especially for leaf springs. Chromium is added to increase hardening response and performs well in a wide range of Rockwell hardness. It can be hardened up near the 60s for knives needing more edge holding.
