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.
this is a great little knife to have its like a great friend all ways with you and never in the way
Certainly, a functional instrument, but more so, a gentleman's accoutrement.
I bought a number of these and engraved them as going-away gifts for servicemembers. They are perfect for this as they are reasonably priced and the entire steel handle can be engraved nicely on both sides. The blade is very short, but I love this knife. If you want to keep it in your pocket and never even feel it there, it is perfect. It is very narrow but 100% of the knives I bought operate properly without any slack or play like you sometimes get in an inexpensive knife. It feels like a quality knife and is extremely sharp.
