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 want to thank you for making a very nice low cost knife that actually feels great in your hand, I have a Oregon Made Automatic that can not travel with me across state lines so this was a impulse buy before a trip, it soon became my favorite daily knife! Light weight, sharp and tough Will buy again
Just bought this and really love it. The size is practical for carrying in your pocket for those occasional jobs that arise and don't require a larger knife or blade. The other advantage is that it's lightweight and can be carried along with your keys without feeling like you've got a pocket full of marbles along for the ride. Can't say enough good things about it. Thanks for making this!
