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..
We consider this the absolute best blade steel available, and it is made in America. S30V contains carbon as well as high amounts of Chromium, Molybdenum and Vanadium. This steel combines fantastic edge retention and high ductility combined with corrosion resistance. Double-tempered - it can be hardened to a Rockwell hardness of Rc 59.5-61. However, it is difficult to resharpen yourself, but we do offer sharpening services for a nominal fee.
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.
So this knife is a few years old. The blade was very slightly bent and not too terribly sharp anymore. It had a little bit of wobble on the blade's hinge. I went to the Buck shop in Post Falls and after taking a look at it they brought me a brand new one. It's like Christmas all over again. This is a super comfy knife with a very easy open. The blade is tougher than nails and the weight feels perfect in my hand. Thanks for such an awesome knife!!!
