While I’m not a huge knife collector myself, Buck Knives has always been one of the first names that come to mind when it comes to what is most popular. The 2021 Legacy collection seems to be a good combination of different types and styles of knives with everything from full tang knives down to small frame locking pocket knives. The 2021 Legacy Collection will be made available starting March of 2021.
