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.
Pardon me for asking however nowhere on any of the individual knives do I see the Buck logo or branding. Are these elk antler handled beauties actually manufactured by Buck?
These knives are awesome, I love them! especially the "spreader" knife, it works great for tomatoes! --to answer the other fellow, the logos are on mine, it's on the other side of the blade though
Gotta love the Buck brand..these are great knives, made in america by skilled craftsmen . The elk looks great on the counter too !
