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.


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.
