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.

Drop Point

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.

One of my favorite knives

I purchased the Buck Thorn a little over month ago and it quickly became one of my favorite knives, especially for everyday carry. The knife is light, well made and feels great in the hand. I'd love to shake the designer's hand and thank him for such an intelligent and beautiful design. That goes for the sheath as well, it's so well designed that I sometimes forget I'm wearing it. I'm really picky about sheaths and often wind up making my own. Great job Buck! I like the Thorn so much I'll probably buy a spare, just in case.
