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
