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.

This is the second Stockman I've had. The first one was lost through a hole in my pocket. I had to replace it. This is the last pocket knife you will have to buy. It is a workhorse.
In my opinion the toughest stockman on the market, a real workhorse of a knife. If you need something done, this knife can do it.
My grand-father carried one of these for years. Up till he died. I bought one recently. For two reasons it lasts and really works hard. The blade shapes will do most of the work you will ever need with moving to a purpose built knife. I go to other blades for hunting and field use, but carry this every day. This even replaced my cold steel folder that I carried in the Army for daily carry.
Since my childhood and the days of my very first pocket knife, I have never had a knife that I loved more. I had been looking at this knife for 2 years before I pulled the trigger and one thing is for sure, the functionality and beauty of this tool are unsurpassed. Wish I had picked it up when I first took notice... it's a real beauty!
