"We like to feel that the Buck Kalinga is also the badge of authority for all sportsmen to wear." Al Buck, Circa 1969. The original Kalinga was a favorite of Al Buck's. With a large sweeping skinner blade and ergonomic handle design, the Kalinga encompasses all the exceptional qualities that have kept it as an all time favorite among knife enthusiasts. Exclusive, elite, and luxurious, the Kalinga remains a top choice for a hunting knife or simply as a collectible. Either way, it is a conversation starter.
