Available Features and Options

One Handed Opening

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..

420HC Steel

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.

Drop Point

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.

Nice find!

I work for a switching railroad in Indiana. While walking along the tracks one day I found this knife laying between the rails. Since then I have used it practically every day for one purpose or another. It has withstood use and abuse most knives ever see and has held up through it all. Superior quality & excellent workmanship. "One man's loss is another man's gain."

best knife i've ever owned.

i have had this knife for a little over two years now and it has been the best knife purchase i have ever made. it has NEVER been sharpened, not one screw tightened and it is my everyday carry. easy one hand open, easy one hand close and still as sharp as when it came out of the box

Simple, solid design

The Vantage is a lean, mean cutting machine. Every part serves a purpose; there is not an ounce of fluff. The blade geometry makes it an all around utility knife, and the 420HC is easy to re-sharpen to a razor edge. The flipper and deployment hole both work great; I annoy my wife with all that flipping. Buck has made a solid, affordable knife, in the good 'ol U.S. of A. It will serve you well.

This knife is well put together with a tight blade lockup and perfect alignment when closed. I would put this knife up against other well known manufactures that cost up to 3 times as much.

Sweet knife

One of the sweetest knives made simple and rugged and very way to use. Weight is good @ 3.7 oz will last forever

Good equipment

I have both regular and smaller version of the Vantage. The best pocket/tactical knife I have owned thus far and I have tried so many from many companies. The only gripe is that the squared top of the pocket clip abrades the hand when one reaches into the pocket the knife is clipped to. Rounding the corners there would make the knife even better.

Next Buck Legend

My son purchased a vantage with woodgrain scales and at first glance I wasn't impressed. The blade was too deep from edge to spine and it had a bulky look to it. Eventually I purchased one for myself with the G10 hanle material and I love the knife! I own nearly 200 knives and some famous brands ( Case xx, Gerber, CRKT, SOG to name a few) but this one is my favorite. My only wish is that the blade had a little more polished finish rather than the deep "as ground" finish. This knife will join the 110 as a legend in Buck history. Thanks Buck team.
