The 327 Nobleman is an elegantly sculpted, slimline gent’s knife. Contributing to the slim profile while reducing weight is the frame-lock design that keeps the blade locked open with a channeled part. A long time favorite, the Nobleman's sleek design feels as good as it looks. Imported.

Good knife, but why is half the thumb stud missing?

I've had one of these for several years, and it has probably seen the most every day use out of all of my knives. My 119 Special is great but huge, and my Ranger is rock solid but not as easy to carry, so this is a great EDC for everyday tasks. It fit every need I had for it: fit in my pocket, blade just under 3", one handed opening with left and right hands, and framelock design (much easier to clean if it's used in, say, a jar of peanut butter). Because of this I've carried it on many trips in the Rockies and multiple times into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (It also survived being dropped in three different lakes). However, this new version is missing half the thumb stud. This makes it very difficult to operate left-handed, when one-handed operation by either hand is kind of the primary point of a small utility knife like this. Even as a right-handed person I use this in my left hand constantly, and the lock is designed well enough to be used left-handed, but the lack of a left-handed thumbstud in this new version is incredibly disappointing. It's such a little thing, and it severely reduces the functionality; I would not buy another Nobleman unless the thumbstud was corrected. (Then I would buy another immediately). Buck, please fix the Nobleman thumbstud, just return it to the way it was.

my favorite EDC

I just bough my latest Nobleman. Mine has the dual thumbstuds, frame lock and holds an excellent edge. I replace them regularly due to my habit of losing things and I buy the same knife every time because I have never found anything I like as well for anywhere near the price. I've carried a pocket knife for 55 years and can't find anything close under $100.

i bought this knife

I bought this knife at academy outdoors. it the perfect size for an edc pocketknife. I like the thumbstud open assist, and it is super sharp, however when I got it out of the package and inspected it I discoved that this knife is made in china. this is a very big HUGE turn off for me. I always thought buck knives were all American made and this one is not. I know I should have looked at it closer and better before I bought it. but I thought all buck knives were American made. had I known it was made in china I definitely would not have bought it.. I am very disappointed. no, I would not recommend anyone buy this knife if you want an American made product made with quality.

Great knife!

I recently purchased this knife with carbon fiber because of the looks. The knife has a sharp blade and opens and closes easy. The only thing that keeps the rating down is that is is made in China. I would pay more for the knife it were made in the USA!

Very good pocket knife !!!

I have had this knife for about 4 years got it from sports academy and have been very happy with it. It keeps a very sharp edge on the blade and the lock on the blade comes in handy most of the time. I do recommend this knife.

Great little knife!

I bought mine when I was on vacation about 8 months ago and I instantly fell in love with it. The blade keeps a nice sharp edge, the folding mechanism is nice a smooth. I like to collect knives and I have a few that are a bit more expensive but, this is truly my favorite knife out of them all. Great buy! Highly reccomend!

Nobleman 327 very disappointing.

Yesterday, I bought a Nobleman 327 for my son while on vacation. Upon our return home. I opened it up to check it out for myself before giving him some safety tips. The knife opened smoothly enough. The only problem was I couldn't fold the blade back into the case. At first I thought I wasn't performing the right motion. So I looked on YouTube to watch a review. The person discussing the knife opened and closed it with ease using one and. His knife had two thumb studs. Mine only has one. In any case, I have still not been able to close the blade. I've tried pulling out and closing and even using the table as a back stop for the blade as I apply pressure to close it. Nothing works. I will be sending this knife in for a fully functional model. Like the previous reviewer, I am not crazy about the one thumb stud.

This knife was purchased for my 11 yr. old son. The packaging makes it difficult to actually see and feel the knife in the store. You have to purchase it first, then cut the plastic package to feel it. The design is decieving, it looks as if it has rubber grips, and even states "rubberized on left side". There is no rubber grip at all. I would not have purchased this knife if I had the chance to feel it before purchase. Also, it lost points with me for being made in china. Over all, very disappointed.
