Mark McLean has been designing and building since he was a kid in his dad’s garage. His grandpa gave him his first knife and taught him that patience is the friend of creativity. With more than 20 years experience, Mark has developed an expertise in professionally designing hand-held products for a variety of international manufacturers. He finds inspiration in the natural world while camping, hunting and mountaineering. Mark has been on the product development team at Buck Knives since 2005. His design in the Thorn marries machine created parts with hand craftsmanship. The Thorn is our first Legacy knife to be considered a “modern heirloom,” and hints at many new designs to come.
