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..

Modified Tanto

Holding many of same features as the regular tanto blade, the angled point is modified between the front edge and the bottom edge on this particular blade. Holds up to piercing, scraping, and prying with tough materials.

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.


Serrations give your Buck blade greater cutting power. Especially useful when cutting line and/or cables.

Very well built and easy to carry.

Recently purchased this knife for daily carry. It is very well built, locks open with a super solid lockup, and has a detent that keeps it closed when in the pocket. I was somewhat skeptical of the point up carry at first, but I carry in my right front pocket and this puts the blade to the rear of the pocket (and did I mention the detent that keeps it closed). Very solid build of steel, but lightweight and not too bulky either. Fits my daily carry needs perfectly at a great price point. Highly recommended.

Best every day carry knife out there.

I've been an avid outdoorsman (camping, hiking, fishing, crabbing) and sportsman all my life who has lived in some pretty rough neighborhoods. I can tell you that this is the best all-purpose every day carry knife that I own and I've owned one for many years. I always buy a folding knife with a "tactical" clip, which means I can draw it from my waist or pocket, open it and use it with one hand. This knife fills that requirement flawlessly and it carries comfortably in my inside waistband at the small of my back. It stays sharp and the combination of serrated and straight edge lets it take on any role. I'll be shocked if this knife isn't considered a classic and it should remain in production for many years to come.

Decent knife

Excellent build. Good quality. Like this knife a whole lot. However it claims to be a one hand operation to open....... Well it is kind of. I certainly wouldn't want to be in a situation where I needed to immediately deploy this knife. I only sometimes can open it one handed. It is very hard to do. My thumb has had all it can take for today, its really sore from trying to open it one handed. I only achieved it a couple of times. The rest of the time the blade won't budge, or it only comes out about an inch at most. There is a sweet spot where it comes allot easier. But it is hard to find consistently. Going to keep working at it. I really want to love this knife........ Want it to be my new EDC blade, but until I can consistently open it without fail it will sit on the sidelines.

Great knife other then a faulty hilt. the thing was sharp enough after a year of use to nearly cut my finger off. i know this sounds bad for the knife but it is the best knife i have ever had. great company is going to replace my knife and everything so thank you buck.

Great knife!

I really like this knife because it is very light and easy to carry. Also, the short blade makes it legal to carry in more places. The only complaints I have are that the blade is slightly difficult to open and quite difficult to close, especially with one hand. In addition, it's not very sharp and it's not the best at holding an edge. I would've given it 5/5 because of how much I like it but I have to be fair with the rating.

My first Buck and I'm happy!

I have over 70 knives and never had a Buck knife before. This is my first Buck Knife and I'm sorry I never looked at Buck knives in the past. It's super easy to open with one hand and because it's so thin it's a great everyday carry knife. It's really solid and the the knife blade has no play when opened. The liner lock pops into place with no problem. My only issue is I see the camo is rubbing off a little. Great knife everall.

An excellent knife

Bought it a month ago and still as sharp as when I first got it! It's the best knife I've ever had! As they say, you can never go wrong with a Buck.
