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 like the knife except for the fact that it is made in China. It still has the Buck warranty, but still made in China. my knife works fine except the coloring on the handle is chipping off and I have only had it a month. Also Chinese steel is not the same as USA steel.................
Knife would be a 5 except it is made in China & their steel is not as good as USA steel. Also the handle coating is peeling off. Other wise it would be a great knife.
Yes it is made in China but........this is a really solid knife. I can not tell the difference between the Chinese steel and the American steel on my other buck knives. It seems to hold an edge just as well. The fit and finish is what a person would expect from Buck. For the price it works as good or better than many knives twice the price. I still prefer my Bucks to be American made but I can't deny that this is a good quality knife.
