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.
Very high quality product. Came ready to use, although every knife I buy from Buck, looks absolutely beautiful and perfect-almost don't want to use it. Feel and balance is very comfortable, I DO recommend this knife.
I've used my knife for the past four seasons, and hands down it is one of the best Buck Knife's I've owned ! From deer to moose. No issues.. The sheath is good, but I'm old school, and a bit more leather would make it perfect. 9 out of 10 for the knife.
Best Hunting Knife in the World, sorry my english bad!!!!
The Vanguard is by far the best big game knife I've ever owned. The blade is stout without being too long, so the knife handles extremely well during heavy cutting tasks. It also holds it's edge extremely well. Field dressed a deer and an elk without having to resharpen the blade.
My wife got me this knife for Christmas 12 years ago. Best knife ever. Wouldn't trade it for anything.
