The Buck 402 Akonua Limited Edition was a collaborative effort between DLT Trading and Buck Knives special projects manager, Billy Bates. The Akonua was a legendary hunting knife that along with its bigger brother, the Kalinga, were among the most iconic hunting/outdoor knives ever made by Buck. With a timeless look that hearkens back to an age when lever actions were your go-to firearm, the Buck 402 Akonua is synonymous with the legendary, classic hunting style of men like Teddy Roosevelt, Jack O’Connor, and Ernest Hemingway. Attractive lines and a very functional design with a large cutting edge gave this knife style and substance.
Measuring 10” overall with a 4.75” trailing point blade, this Buck hunting knife is as good as it gets for field dressing and skinning medium sized and big game. A full tang construction and durable pinned nickel silver guard provide extreme toughness and elegant lines. The knife comes with a deluxe distressed leather sheath, 3 nickel silver pins and a heritage walnut handle that looks classy and historically correct. Now for the best part…for this limited-edition Buck hunting knife DLT chose CPM S30V super stainless steel for unparalleled edge retention. The Akonua has never been built in such a premium steel. Whether you are a collector or an outdoorsman you will surely want to buy the Buck 402 Akonua for your collection. Proudly made in the USA with a very low production.
