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.
Bought this knife years ago because I liked its looks and it looked lightweight. Didn't know it was a fishing knife. I have used this to field dress numerous deer and elk and it works great.
