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.
Great pocket knife. Just a perfect size for carrying in your pocket. Customizable makes it really great. Have it customized to the way you like it. I did. My only problem is I've had more than one of these customized Buck knives. This 505, 110. Stag handles that are beautiful. Polished knuckle. I get them and they're so beautiful I end up just adding them to my collection. If you want the best, a knife that stands out when you pull it out these customized Bucks are it.
