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 bought the orange without serrations. And it's work flawlessly! Very little wiggle room when the blade is out. A very positive grip for your hand. Basically as long as you keep it sharp, it won't let you down. Just don't let it down and your good to go!! Best knife have owned so far. It goes where I go. Hands down. I have three bucks. Looking into a fourth.
Just joined the Buck Family today. After being a Schrade only for years. This knife is so smooth - easy one hand opening and I can fling it open flawlessly just like my Schrade used to do. I also read in the warranty/message pamphlet that they are Partners with God. That just confirms it for me. I will miss Schrade but I love my new Buck Spitfire Serated.! Christ is king - forever!!! Thx Uncle Buck
Excellent EDC blade! Very light and thin. Picked up the orange and love the color. Easy deployment, great sized blade, super sharp. Great knife from Buck.
I have many knives from most of the leading knife companies. Some are fairly expensive and I have developed some strong biases in features I like on a knife over the years. The Spitfire caught my eye so I checked it out and am so glad I did. This knife sports an ideal balance between blade to handle ratio, has nice jimping on the scales for a secure grip and though the pocket clip is fine and functional, if it came with a lower rider clip I would give the Spitfire a *five* anvil rating What a great, fun knife !
I live in Japan, and been a fan of Buck Knives for more than 20 years. I have the several Buck Knives, and have recently purchased this 722/Spitfire, Grey Grip, without the serrations. Great Knife! Very light, and easy to open with one (1) hand of the excellent EDC!. Seems that this knife has been designed with a conscious of Spyderco Knives, but I love Buck Knives much more than Spyderco knives since Buck ones are 100% Made in U.S.A., and their repair services are also excellent. Good Job, my Buck!
