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.
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 am not an over the top, jingoistic blowhard,I purchase many foreign made items. I love Swiss Army Knives. Mora of Sweden, and HagenDazs Ice cream. Oh wait, Hagen-Dazs is made in America, and so should Buck knives. This is a beautiful knife, and I will buy it when it is produced in America. Case does it; you can, also. Thank you, Chris Smith
Ok, I've carried this knife and used it every day for a few months now, and I absolutely love it! It opens smoothly, locks solidly into place, and the blade can handle just about every chore I've given it. It came shaving sharp out of the box, and has only been touched up once. The handle is super comfortable and fits my large hands perfectly. All in all, it has met every one of my expectations, and I am a long time Buck customer and collector (40+ years). This knife quickly became my new EDC knife, and I am never without it. I don't care where it was made, Buck has another hit with the small folding Selkirk, and I highly recommend it for EDC.
Make it in America with American workers and I will more than likely buy it.
Great size, great balance, great looking knife. One problem though, when I took it out of the box there was a nick in the cutting edge about half an inch from the tip. A couple of swipes with a stone took care of it but, one wonders if they were produced here the quality control would be better. As it is they are produced in China.
The knife is well made, love the design and the size. I did have one problem though. Out of the box there was a small nick in the cutting edge about half an inch from the tip. A couple of swipes with a stone took care of it. I have owned a md 110 for about 40 years and it has never let me down whether working construction or while camping and hunting. I was a bit surprised with the nick on the edge of this blade. As another review mentioned would it be too hard to make these here? I am sure the quality control would be much better.
Excellent knife great build but on the rear side of the blade it has china etched in are they made in china or is this a copy?
If was made in the USA I would buy this knife again and again. Love the look.
I needed a knife for work and and honestly I couldn't stop thinking about the quality of a 119 I bought a while back. Razor sharp but too big for work so lo and behold, the Selkirk caught my eye. From the day I got it to right now, the blade remains as beautiful and as sharp as the day I opened the box it came in. You already had me with the 119 and you've definitely kept me with this one. Fine work as usual
My first knife ever and I bought a buck I love this every day carry
I am impressed, very well done. Thank you for another fine product, and I do own quite a few Buck knives.
