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.
I HAVE THREE BUCK 110 THE FIRST ONE WAS MADE 1974-1980 TWO DOT 440C STEEL . MY FRIEND HAD IT AND I TRADED HIM MY NEW ONE BACK IN 1999 TO GET HIS OLDER ONE .

A couple of months ago I bought my first Buck. I've owned a lot of knives, some expensive and some cheap, ever since my dad first gave me a folder when I was eight years old. Now I have found my brand of choice. The quality, materials, and craftsmanship invested into this knife have surprised me. I like the weight and sturdy feeling I get when I hold and use it. I've never written a review for a product before but felt the need to express my opinion. For everyday carry or heavy utility, I've found that no matter what job have a job to do then Buck has the right knife for you.
