This is Buck's standard blade material because it approaches the wear resistance of high carbon alloys while delivering the corrosion resistance of chromium stainless steels. Add our exclusive heat-treat process and you have a very user-friendly combination of superior corrosion resistance with excellent strength for wear resistance and durability. You also have a blade that is easy to resharpen. For best performance we harden to a Rockwell hardness of Rc 58.
The crescent tip makes the blade thinner with a sharper point. This shape provides good control for detail work and cutting in tight places. It is also well suited for intentional punctures like new holes in your belt, etc. While the point of the blade is effective for detail work, it's not as strong as the thicker points on drop points and skinners.
This knife is an exception to the rule "They don't make them like they used to." Still high quality, and still well made in The USA.
Great knives. Love made in USA knives. Just bought the 50th anniversary edition at a garage sale un opened in the box with the leather case. Picked it up for 40 bucks. Its a nice knife and the man said i should keep it in the box, but im going to carry and use it every day until i hand it down to my son, who is 3 weeks old right now.
I put off getting one of these for many years, being a traditional fixed blade kind of guy. I found one with the tip snapped off for $15 and bought it. I bought another one to keep in the car within a week. I like to go roving or stumping, shooting stumps and logs with my longbow. The knife with the flat tip is perfect for digging judo heads out of stubborn stumps, as well as many other uses.
When I was 13, I got my first Buck knife - a 119 in nickel - along with my first rifle, a Remington .243. I loved the Buck, but it wasn't something that I could carry around at school, so it stayed in a drawer, mostly. I had a bunch of (crappy) pocket knives over the years, and finally, out of luck, mostly, found a nice Gerber 625 some time in the 90's. It was a good knife for a while, but the blade started wobbling after the first year. I kept it around until it became really dangerous to use, which was about 3 years ago, when I started looking for a replacement. I surfed all of the knife forums, survivalist forums, hunting forums, etc, looking for the perfect knife. I am happy to say that I finally found 2 outrageously good knives. First, a 110 with rivets and brass bolsters, which is my EDC. I also managed to find a Duke with a cherry handle that I carry when I'm wearing something other than jeans. I can't imagine that I will need another EDC knife in this lifetime. Both the Duke and the 110 are solid, reliable, easily sharpened and maintained, look great, and most importantly, are world class tools. I use them hard, and they have never let me down. I still have my old Gerber in the toolbox, but I doubt that it will see the light of day again. I'm completely sold on Buck knives, and recommend them to anyone who will listen. The Buck 110 is the best folding knife in the world, and I'll fight you in an alley if you want to make something of it.
bought my first 110 folder in 1975. had the blade replaced in 1984. still carry it. I own 17 buck knives. some times can't decide what to carry. keep up the great work. thank you for all the great knives. Art PS. would love to buy the 50th. anniversary edition but can't due to being on social security.
GOT MY FIRST BUCK KNIFE USED BACK IN 1999. BACK IN 1999 I HAD A BRAND NEW 110 FOLDING HUNTER . A FRIEND OF MINE HAD ONE FROM 1974-80 WITH 440 C STEEL WITH ORIGINAL SHEATH . I ASKED HIM IF HE WOULD TRADE AND I ENDED UP WITH THE 1974 110 THAT SAME DAY. NOW FAST FOWARD TO 2007 THIS 110 WAS MY VERY FIRST HUNTING KNIFE AND I ENDED UP GETTING TO USE IT ON MY VERY FIRST DEER A BUTTON BUCK . NOW I OWN A 2012 BUCK 110 THAT I BOUGHT NEW THAT YEAR AND USED IT HUNTING DURING THE 2013 SEASON FOR SQUIRRL , RABBIT HUNTING AS WELL. I ALSO CARRY MY BUCK MAXLITE 679 GUTHOOK WITH MY 110 EVERYTIME I GO OUT IN TO THE WOODS. THEN THIS YEAR I WENT AHEAD AND BOUGHT ME THE BUCK 50TH ANNV KNIFE I WILL MOST LIKLEY USE IT BUT TAKE VERY GOOD CARE OF IT DUE TO IT BEING A LIMITED EDITION DEAL .
Fine craftsmanship in this 50th Anniversary classic that has been signed by Chuck Buck. Looks great and feels solid. Just like a "Buck".
My father bought my brother and I the same knife only much much smaller about 25 yrs ago.. my mother said they were too sharp to have at such a young age. Fast forward to being 34 yrs old, my father hands me a package on my birthday and it's the 50th anniversary version of what I couldn't have at 8-9 yrs old. Imagine my excitement to see the very first knife I had, but in an adult size. I'm 6'4 " and this knife fits my hand perfectly. Thanks for sticking around for me too enjoy with years to go!!
I just had to get my hands on this true Buck classic folding hunter knife. I just purchased this knife at the Denham Springs Bass Pro Shops and so glad I did!! I have always owned Buck knives for their craftsmanship, dependability, and outstanding sharpness. This knife is true craftsmanship, feels good in the hand, and is a beauty for 50 yr. Anniversary knife, simple but a true "Buck". Proud to be part of the Buck family!
I got my first Buck 110 a few years ago and have carried it ever since and I liked it so much that I had to get another one just in case I lost one. Also its worth getting the leather sheath for it instead of the felt one the leather looks a lot better and I don't feel it will fall apart as much
I Bought this knife for hunting season in 1966.Always has served me well; holds an edge very well and fits in the hand like it's made for it. Have had to grind the knuckle down from time to time over the years, to keep it closing properly, but after the use it has given me, I'm well pleased. Think my grandson might want the anniversary edition.
I purchased my folding hunter in 1966. It has been used every year since then. I like the feel of the knife. It holds an edge very well. I have used other knives, but always come back to my Buck. Happy Anniversary!
My brother bought me a folding hunter for my birthday 5 years ago.I had to have the 50th anniversary addition.My buck has skinned several deer and squirrel and has never let me down.
There are two things in this world that are synonymous with quality and craftsmanship.....Buck Knives and Made In the USA. Thankfully, the former is a part of the latter. And that just makes it that much more special. The Buck 110 Folding Hunter is an American Icon, and has been for many years. It is without a doubt one of the best knives on the market and you would be hard pressed to find a finer example of craftsmanship and quality in a knife. The design worked 50 years ago. And it still works today. You do not change what doesn't need changing. If it works, keep making it that way and it will become the legend that this knife is. From the beautiful wood inlays to the brass bolsters to the razor-sharp edge on the blade itself just scream quality and care. It is an absolute joy to be able to own this knife and know the history that I carry with me every single day.
Would have not spent that kind of money on any other kind of knife. Paid full retail from this website. And then found it on Amazon for about $23.00 less.
