General-purpose stainless steel. 420J2 is well suited for routine applications, is easily sharpened, and offers a great blend of hardness and wear resistance
Love the concept of this folding filllet knife. If your an avid hunter/fisherman or a weekend warrior this knife is top of the line. However I am sending mine back it will not stay locke . Let's see how well Buck Knives stands behind their warranty? One year old knife that have washed and dryed after every use.
When visiting Alaska a few years ago I became enamored with a locally crafted, wood handled filet knife. The maker asked me if I was really going to use it, or just look at it. When I said use it, he suggested this Buck Knife as the solution his friends used. I appreciated his honesty and this knife has become the workhorse of many trips into the BWCA and Quetico. Love the balance, strength and flexibility of this knife so much I bought another one to use at home in the kitchen. Great product. Thanks.
I love this knife. Its strong, long and compact. Absolutely perfect except...I find this knife is a bit more sensitive to crud than any other knife I have. I have a problem right now where when it is closed the blade will move an inch open. This is a SHARP knife so that has been a problem. I am going to send it in for warranty work just to make sure it is not a defect. Hope that fixes it...I love this thing.
