Has a thumb stud, blade hole or other feature to facilitate one-hand use. Some models are one-hand opening and one-hand closing as well..
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.
Found this beauty on one of our ambulances. A bit heavy, but very sturdy and has been through lots of abuse, including being run over by said ambulance and through the washing machine. Blade is still sharp as ever and has not rusted through the rain, sleet, and snow that I've dropped it in. No one ever came forward to claim it and now I'm not giving it back!
Well let me start by saying that I am passionate about stag handle folders and bowie knives. Buck please run more 192 and 191 models in stag without any cut outs or print on the blades!!!! The EDC for me could easily be a 110 folder but then I decided to try a Quickfire. I can find them retail for under $40. I like it so much I am stocking up for a lifetime supply. The blade is super sharp, super tough, has held an edge without waiver. The handle took a bit to fall in love with but believe me with time you will. The opening assist is simply perfect, love the safety and the especially the lock blade style lock. I did bend my clip by catching it on something but I didn't bother to remove it I just drop this EDC down into my pocket and forget it. This maybe the most underrated values in the entire line up. A must have if you are a buck fan, and if you are I suggest you buy at least two just in case they don't keep it around long enough.
