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.
Serrations give your Buck blade greater cutting power. Especially useful when cutting line and/or cables.
Recently purchased this knife for daily carry. It is very well built, locks open with a super solid lockup, and has a detent that keeps it closed when in the pocket. I was somewhat skeptical of the point up carry at first, but I carry in my right front pocket and this puts the blade to the rear of the pocket (and did I mention the detent that keeps it closed). Very solid build of steel, but lightweight and not too bulky either. Fits my daily carry needs perfectly at a great price point. Highly recommended.
Bought it a month ago and still as sharp as when I first got it! It's the best knife I've ever had! As they say, you can never go wrong with a Buck.
