Available Features and Options

One Handed Opening

Has a thumb stud, blade hole or other feature to facilitate one-hand use. Some models are one-hand opening and one-hand closing as well..

420HC Steel

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.

Spear Point


Gut Hook

For great performance when field dressing game, a gut or skinning hook is an ideal tool. We’ve paid careful attention to the angles on the sharpened edge, shape and size of the entry opening and location of the hook on the blade, making a Buck gut hook the best.


Serrations give your Buck blade greater cutting power. Especially useful when cutting line and/or cables.

All You Need in the Woods

I've used both the previous version of the Alpha Crosslock 'PBS', and now the new generation, and can say that they are invaluable tools in the woods. Light, durable, and extremely functional. From field processing game, to cutting shooting lanes, building natural blinds, or your knife at the dinner table at camp, this is truly a do-it-all knife. It's always in my pack, no matter the adventure.

Not happy with design change of knife

Great knife just have one problem with it I have had a previous cross lock that had tabs on the opposite side of blade to ease in getting blades out. My new one doesn't have that very disappointed in that change but it is still a very good knife just much harder to get the blades out of the new version

Best knife for taking care of deer!!!!

I had a friend who used another name brand knife which was larger and he severed an artery using too large of a knife .So after a trip to the hospital and several stitches (and lots of ribbing ) I took a look at what was really needed to take care of a deer properly that would be sharp and reliable .One of my friends introduced me to the Buck Crosslock ..and since then and 2 knives one for me, one for my brother-in-law I haven't been dissatisfied. .The Crosslock handles anything you need to do and might I suggest the orange it is hard to lose in the blood and leaves when your working on that trophy !!!

Idea for sheath upgrade

This looks like a super knife for survival situations, as it also has a nice saw / gut webbing hook. Please consider adding the fire starter/ whistle from your Selkirk knife to the sheath and it could be a complete survival kit! A hardened glass punchon the hilt would be a great plus.
