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.
Almost scalpel-like in shape, it has a mild drop point, with nearly a spear tip that is used for the delicate removal of the hide of the face of a trophy animal. The shape makes caping knives perfect choices for birds and small game. Caping knives tend to be slim and very light duty so they are not always a right choice if you only intend to carry a single knife.
I GOT MY BUCK PACKLITE CAPER STAINLESS STEEL VERSION CHRISTMAS 2013 . I GOT TO USE IT IN JANUARY 2014 DURING THE REMAINDER OF SQUIRRL SEASON A FRIEND AND I ENDED UP SHOOTING THREE GREY AND ONE RED SQUIRRL'S THAT DAY. BROUGHT THEM BACK TO MY HOUSE AND ENDED UP USING MY BUCK CAPER AND MY BUCK 679 GUTHOOK KNIVES THAT NIGHT TO CLEAN THE SQUIRRL'S. THE BUCK CAPER REALLY AMAZED ME ON HOW WELL IT WORKED ON SMALL GAME. BEFORE THIS KNIFE I USED MY 673 BUCK MAXLITE TO CLEAN SMALL GAME SUCH AS SQUIRRL. . THE BUCK CAPER WILL PROB ONLY BE USED FOR SQUIRRL'S AND RABBIT'S OTHER THAN THAT I WILL USE MY 673 OR MY 102 WOODSMAN. I BOUGHT MY 102 THIS FEBUARY AND HAVE NOT HAD A CHANCE TO USE IT YET AND CANT WAIT TO TRY IT. BUCK KNIVES ARE MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE AND ARE THE ONLY BRAND I CARRY EVERYDAY AND USE EVERY YEAR HUNTING AS WELL. MY VERY FIRST HUNTING KNIFE WAS A BUCK 110 FROM 1974 THAT I GOT IN 1999 FROM A FRIEND WHEN I TRADED HIM MY BRAND NEW ONE BACK THEN. THE 1974 110 IS NOW 40 YEARS OLD AND STILL HAS THE ORIGINAL LEATHER SHEATH WHICH I TREAT TWICE A YEAR.
This knife would be all any deer hunter would ever need if it had a small gut hook I have had one for 5 years an have skinned a lot of deer with it but if it would have had a gut hook it would have been so much easier it hangs on your side so good you don't even no its there till u need it then when u get the job done u just take a nonsented baby wipe an clean it in bout 30 seconds an ur good to go awesome little knife
First of I am not a hunter but I carry this with me everywhere. I love the knife itself and the only reason I'm giving it four stars is because the strap on the sheath broke but I fixed it with a little Velcro. The knife is excellent and keeps an edge very well, I make knives myself so I understand what it takes to make a quality knife.
I HAVE A BUCK PACKLITE CAPER STAINLESS STEEL VERSION I GOT IT IN DECEMBER 2013 I GOT A CHANCE TO USE IT JANUARY 2014 TO GO SQUIRRL HUNTING I ENDED UP GETTING FOUR SQUIRRL'S THAT DAY THREE GREY AND ONE RED. A FRIEND AND I CLEANED THEM AT MY HOUSE AND TRIED MY BUCK STAINLESS STEEL CAPER OUT THAT NIGHT FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME. THIS KNIFE IS GREAT I REALLY LIKE THE DESIGN AND FEEL OF THE KNIFE. YOU CANT EVEN TELL YOU ARE CARRING IT ON YOUR BELT. IT IS EASY TO SHARPEN AND HOLDS A EDGE A LONG TIME. I EVEN USE IT WHEN OPENING CARDBOARD BOXES OR MY MAIL I HAVE EVEN USED IT AS A KITCHEN KNIFE AS WELL. SO IT HAS HELD UP TO EVERYTHING I DO I WOULD SUGGEST THIS KNIFE TO ANYONE THAT IS A DEER HUNTER,SQUIRRL,AND RABBIT.
Amazing little blade. I picked up the all stainless model and could not believe how well it handles and it has great control in your hand. Whomever at Buck designed this knife should get an award. I know it's just a caper but it could easily pass to be used for more purposes.
I've had this knife for a couple of years. I've really only used it for partridge and other small bird. Yesterday I used it to skin and process a deer. It's the only knife I needed, and never sharpened it. It stayed sharp, sprayed clean and was easy to grip theroughout the whole process. Great job to Buck. It's a keeper.
