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.
Serrations give your Buck blade greater cutting power. Especially useful when cutting line and/or cables.
I use this knife for almost every thing and I realy abuse it. I've broken the clip a couple of times and sent it in and they send back a new one! (Forever warranty) I'm going to trade it in plus $17 for the yellow rescue version, Also Buck is a Christian company!
Iv owned 5 or 6 of these now over the last 3 or so years. Not to say iv broke or rendered the knife nonfunctional. Iv gone threw so many due to my great ability to set them down and walk away. I like to think someone finds them and likes this knife as much as I. This is a great knife the best the Buck.......
I use my knife every day multiple times at my job, and the redpoint has not disappointed me. The overall quality of the knife is great. Its light weight, opens extremely easily, and is very tough. I would strongly recommend this knife to anyone who wants a good everyday go to knife.
I just bought this knife a second time, I lost the first one in Afghanistan. I absolutely love this knife, I usually only carry a tonto blade but this knife is such a good every day carry that I keep it with me. I use this in the field and in garrison and pretty much have no complaints. If Buck ever makes a non-serrated tonto version in 420hc I'll be the first one to buy it!!
i have 2 of these knives,im very happy with the first but the second one I purchased the lock mechanisim broke within about a week. need to send it back and use the lifetime warranty.
