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.
Great little knife to have on a keychain. Perfect for mail or UPS delivery.
I find all kinds of uses for this knife, hence I am lost without it.
Our local hardware store went out of business and they ended up liquidating stock. I never thought about buying a little handy knife like this before but the price was right ($5) so I picked up 3; one for myself and for my two Cousin's I hunt with. We all love this little knife. Had it now for 5 years. The blade is good steel you can sharpen it like a scalpel. Plus you don't even realize this is in your pocket.
I've had mine since 1991. Has endured many years of camping, hiking and fishing trips. Even had it confiscated while on jury duty (yes they returned it). I have other pocket knifes but none can replace my MiniBuck. Sad news is I just let a friend use it for a couple seconds and he snapped the tip off :( I'm glad to see they still make this great knife.
Very good knive
i've having this urge to buy another mini knife but with quick opening features, after looking around i just realize what a great knife this is had it since 1997, its been trouble free and stays sharp, wish things go back to USA mfg. but Buck stayed the same
I've carried one everyday in my pocket for a couple years. Use it all day long. It's super light weight for pocket carry, strong (I've dropped it a couple hundred times and it still looks brand new and works perfectly) and easy to sharpen.
If I could keep one for more than 2 weeks I might charpen it. I've lost three but always go back to this knife. It's light , sharp, and stronge. I've given both my son-in-laws one and they sy the same thing. Always buy Buck and always will. Thanks Scott Castleberry
