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 am not an over the top, jingoistic blowhard,I purchase many foreign made items. I love Swiss Army Knives. Mora of Sweden, and HagenDazs Ice cream. Oh wait, Hagen-Dazs is made in America, and so should Buck knives. This is a beautiful knife, and I will buy it when it is produced in America. Case does it; you can, also. Thank you, Chris Smith
Great size, great balance, great looking knife. One problem though, when I took it out of the box there was a nick in the cutting edge about half an inch from the tip. A couple of swipes with a stone took care of it but, one wonders if they were produced here the quality control would be better. As it is they are produced in China.
If was made in the USA I would buy this knife again and again. Love the look.
I needed a knife for work and and honestly I couldn't stop thinking about the quality of a 119 I bought a while back. Razor sharp but too big for work so lo and behold, the Selkirk caught my eye. From the day I got it to right now, the blade remains as beautiful and as sharp as the day I opened the box it came in. You already had me with the 119 and you've definitely kept me with this one. Fine work as usual
My first knife ever and I bought a buck I love this every day carry
I am impressed, very well done. Thank you for another fine product, and I do own quite a few Buck knives.
