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.
Got this knife 2 days ago and came damb sharp. The blade was centered nicely and the liner lock was right in the middle. Very nice Uncle Buck! OK so the TLC I had to oil it up to get it opening smoothly and two days of use it opens nicely. Becarful when tightening these small screws as it is very easy to strip them! As this lillte knife works in more its only going to get better.....oh and BTW I used to carry an Osborne axis 940 (a $250 knife in Canada) but last it last year at work so this $36 knife is replacing it. A tall order buck. I like it so much I'm going to get the upgraded s30v steel blade next! Just wish these had thumb studs, at least the small one as the hole is useless with big hands. Enjoy folks.
