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..
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 blade is full bellied with a strong, thick point for heavier tasks. It can also be used as a general work knife. The top of the blade drops down toward the tip, which minimizes accidental puncturing while skinning. The drop point blade is strong and very versatile.
Serrations give your Buck blade greater cutting power. Especially useful when cutting line and/or cables.
Had it for 3 years now. Takes no effort at all to open and holds a edge very good. Love this knife would love to see more like it.I would recommend this knife to every one.
I love this knife, but the plastic thumb lock is glued in place, and can pop out if you happen to drop it on a hard surface. In my case, I was on vacation in Vermont loading up my truck when it fell out of my pants pocket to the asphalt. Maybe a 3 foot drop. Took me about 5 minutes to find the button. Upon further inspection my wife (a material scientist who used to work with epoxies and resins) told me that it had been glued in and it would need to be glued back. This is literally my everyday knife, so it's awesome other than this issue.
Perfect every day carry knife - gorgeous design, fits/clips in my pocket with ease. Would recommend to all!
I love the knife and its opening system but the knife (like many) is held together with several torx style fasteners. These are smaller sized than most tool kits come with, which is a problem since the fasteners come loose and will eventually fall out. I still have the two critical fasteners in mine which technically keeps it together but it would be nice to see an improved system on future models. Buck, do you have replacement fasteners available?? I'll bump this review to 5 stars if so!
The best pocket knife I've ever had. Got it at the NRA Convention in 2014, had CJ sign it, and it's good to go every day. Have had no problems with it and most often have to one hand it. Opens easily and stays that way gloves or no gloves.
