Compadre B108BRS1 Froe Paling Knife by Buck Knives  

The froe, or frow, sometimes know as a paling knife, is one of the forgotten tools of yesteryear. This versatile tool was once an everyday necessity when the splitting of timber for fire wood was a matter of survival. In modern times Buck's product development team have reintroduced froe in the form of the Compadre as a heavy-duty, durable, multi-purpose wood working tool that's ideal for outdoor activities

The Compadre's 9 1/2" blade is perfect for clearing, heavy chopping, splitting and batoning, giving you the heft of an axe married with the subtlety of a knife

Ergonomic design and the application of advanced materials in the construction mean the Compadre handles a wide range of tough tasks with the minimum of fuss

5160 carbon steel blade is high in carbon and chromium making it super tough with high impact resistance, with edge retention, enhanced corrosion resistance and wear resistance. The blade has a Cobalt Cerakote polymer-ceramic coating, an innovative technology that protects the blade from abrasion/wear, providing corrosion and chemical resistance, and increased impact strength and hardness 

Full tang construction, the blade and handle being constructed with a single piece of steel, the handle being formed around the steel, produces a knife of exceptional strength with no weak point between the handle and the blade 

Micarta composite handle is a linen and synthetic resin mix, that offers excellent grip, even in wet conditions were the textile swells to offer even greater purchase

Supplied with a real leather sheath that protects the blade and allows it to carried safely attached a belt.

Designed for the most demanding of back woods campers, Buck have ensured the Compadre is up to the toughest of tasks

Every Buck Knife blade is put through a rigorous heat treatment process which gives you a longer edge life, ease of re-sharpening and unrivalled blade quality 

Substantial and rugged, the Compadre range of camp tools represent the cutting edge of outdoor tools in the 2020's
