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.
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
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.
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
