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.
I got this knife and was expecting it to be heavy and clumbsy but I was wrong Buck knocked this one out of the ball park. Very easy to use and feels great in the hand and this will be my new EDC I highly recommend and you want be disappointed. The only thing I would change is no lock don't need one and gets in the way but not a deal breaker love this knife.
While I wasn't immediately sold on the Inertia upon first seeing the knife in the display case, my opinion changed the moment I put it in my hand. Since purchasing my first unit, I have since picked up a second knife just to make sure I am not without. I would highly recommend this knife for a daily carry. Just be careful who you allow to check it out, as you will no doubt find people are hard pressed to give it back once they cycle it.
This is exactly what I wanted, I have 3 Buck knives but this is my favorite. If you are looking for a great knife , buy this one.
This knife sounded real nice on the description so I had to have it. It is just what I wanted , didn't need to look anywhere else. It's a Buck so I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. Get this knife you'll love it.
