Available Features and Options

420HC Steel

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 pin knife to carry!

I've carried my little Lancer for over forty years now. Bought it in the Navy Exchange in Vietnam when I was in the Riverine Force and carried it from there onwards through the rest of my Navy career (31 years). Would not think of being without it! At times I also carried larger knives, usually sheath, but for some things the little Lancer was the "go to". Lost it a couple of times, but found it again. What can I say--45 years of service and still razor sharp!

Not what they used to be

I bought this knife to replace my grandpas 305 lancer from years ago. The knife I bought is a real disappointment. Fit an finish is very cheap, which doesn't bother me. The blades are too hard of steel, and have too wide of a bevel on too thick of a blade. I build custom straight razors an ship them all over the US. I have more than enough competence to sharpen this knife, but when I sharpen it, it just goes dull. I work in a pharmacy so this knife has seen no work other than opening mail, trimming fingernails, an splitting the occasional cardboard box. This knife isnt up to par for my standards. I would get more use out of a $20 case than this $45 buck. Very sad.
