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..
Holding many of same features as the regular tanto blade, the angled point is modified between the front edge and the bottom edge on this particular blade. Holds up to piercing, scraping, and prying with tough materials.
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.
I recently purchased a carry folding knife that I thought was a great all purpose AMERICAN MADE PRODUCT another one of many knives that I have bought since the 60's and 70's from buck. I have always been a fan of your products from the classic 110 to some of your skinners and straight blade hunting knives that I still carry and use to this day. I can not tell you how disturbed I was to find out that my folder #0869cms-b was produced in china.....Buck you have always stood for quality and being Americana. What happened???..I will always be willing to pay more for quality that is produced in USA..stop trying to cut corners as your name is an icon that should be represented accordingly........
