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.
The crescent tip makes the blade thinner with a sharper point. This shape provides good control for detail work and cutting in tight places. It is also well suited for intentional punctures like new holes in your belt, etc. While the point of the blade is effective for detail work, it's not as strong as the thicker points on drop points and skinners.
I have always carried a Buck 110 since I was a teen, with the law change in Texas I thought an automatic knife would be great! Imagine my suprise when I found my favorite knife with a new twist, and not a modified version but factory made, couldn't ask for anything better!
Smooth action, fast opening coupled with that quality you expect in a Buck knife. Comes with a Leather sheath which is a nice touch, the blade is razor sharp, overall super high quality with a modern touch being able to open it with one hand.
My dad gave me my first BUCK hunting knife 45 years ago and said then that there is more expensive knives out there and maybe a few prettier one's but as far a quality, reliability and durability you can't do any better then a BUCK. well for the last 45 years I must say he was right in all accounts. I have several 110 folding hunters as well as several 112's and a verity of Skinner and small pocket knives (all BUCKS of course) and they do stand the test of time. There warranty is second to none even though I have only had to use it once or twice over the many years, they honor their product as advertised. And now with the 110 Auto, well they hit a home-run with this one, it's the same robust high quality 110 that we have come to know and love with a few more internal parts. It opens with authority and locks tight. The price is a little high in my opinion but the way this knife is going to catch on it will be another BUCK treasure I'm sure in no time.
Buck clearly looked at some conversions before designing this one. The wood isn't hollow immediately behind the button like round button conversions, the tab that engages the blade inside the handle is steel instead of brass like the conversions, and the wood is riveted to the handle ahead of the button-no worries about it pulling away from the liner like all three conversions I've had. Great job.
