Buck Knives has been turning out quality gear for over 110 years. The Compadre Camp Axe is a perfect example of that experience and craftsmanship. First off, we love the looks of the red powdercoated steel blade. All of the tools in the Buck “Compadre” series come with the red blade. A huge benefit of the powdercoated blade is not having to worry about rust. The stamped out Buck logo on the butt is also a nice touch. The handle is a great looking, heritage walnut that compliments the blade really well. The overall length of the camp axe is 12 3/4″ and weighs in at 23.4 oz. All of Buck’s tools are proudly made in the USA and come with a lifetime warranty.
