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.
Best suited for skinning game. The tip is narrow, while the wide curved belly gives a nice skinning sweep that aids in getting through thick layers. The downward angled, more blunt point makes it harder to make an accidental slice through the hide.
LOVE the blade design, how lightweight it truly is. When you open it and it locks in place there is NO WOBBLE or wiggle, Solid lock-up! Got my knife May 16th 2017 and been on my person since that day. Two thumbs up to the Men and Women who have designed and built this great knife, Keep up the great work! Ghostpepperman
