Available Features and Options

One Handed Opening

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.

S30V Steel

We consider this the absolute best blade steel available, and it is made in America. S30V contains carbon as well as high amounts of Chromium, Molybdenum and Vanadium. This steel combines fantastic edge retention and high ductility combined with corrosion resistance. Double-tempered - it can be hardened to a Rockwell hardness of Rc 59.5-61. However, it is difficult to resharpen yourself, but we do offer sharpening services for a nominal fee.

Drop Point

This blade is full bellied with a strong, thick point for heavier tasks. It can also be used as a general work knife. The top of the blade drops down toward the tip, which minimizes accidental puncturing while skinning. The drop point blade is strong and very versatile.

I LOVE this knife!

I bought this knife during the summer of 2016. There is NO substitute for Buck quality. This is a prime example of it. It holds a razor's edge. It is a product of which Buck should be proud. I would buy one again without a second thought. If you're "on the fence" about this knife, don't hesitate, go ahead and buy it. When I can afford to buy their 110 Auto with an S30V steel blade, I will buy one.

Best knives in the world

This knife is absolutely amazing. Rock solid construction, top quality materials, and made in USA, same can be said for all Buck knives. The price may look steep but it's pure quality and craftsmanship. Built to last a lifetime.
