Has a thumb stud, blade hole or other feature to facilitate one-hand use. Some models are one-hand opening and one-hand closing as well.
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.
Serrations give your Buck blade greater cutting power. Especially useful when cutting line and/or cables.
I like the knife except for the fact that it is made in China. It still has the Buck warranty, but still made in China. my knife works fine except the coloring on the handle is chipping off and I have only had it a month. Also Chinese steel is not the same as USA steel.................
Knife would be a 5 except it is made in China & their steel is not as good as USA steel. Also the handle coating is peeling off. Other wise it would be a great knife.
Yes it is made in China but........this is a really solid knife. I can not tell the difference between the Chinese steel and the American steel on my other buck knives. It seems to hold an edge just as well. The fit and finish is what a person would expect from Buck. For the price it works as good or better than many knives twice the price. I still prefer my Bucks to be American made but I can't deny that this is a good quality knife.
This is more about the fact Buck Knives are being made in China. I've bought a few of the Buck Knives mostly because they were made in North America. I don't support any companies that have anything to do with the communist Red China!
Thank you for letting us know this knife is made in China. I almost ordered it online. I love buck knifes, but will never buy one made in China as they are not as durable as an American made knife.
How can I sum up this knife? Well first off the price for this knife is great. (I bought mine on Amazon so it was a bit cheaper). The quality is what I expect from buck. It would have been great if it was a spring assist knife, but ya know what? Once you put a little lube on it and open it enough times it can be opened just like a spring assist with the right grip. For a liner lock this knife is pretty strong. The coating hasn't gotten damaged what so ever since I've had it for a year now. It even has a lanyard hole with is a nice feature. I have large hands. I wear either an xl or a large size depending on the glove and this knife is very comfortable to hold and not heavy either (remember everyone is different in weight and comfort). One reviewer mentioned the black material on the handle is coming off on his knife and that has not been a problem on mine. It looks more like a coating than something glued on which is not a complaint on my part. As for the fact it's made in China..I have 3 knives from them total made in China and I can assure you their quality is outstanding. IF I didn't know they were imported I would assume they were made here. I spoke to a customer rep about the Chinese factory and she told me that factory gets routine inspections and is under contract to produce high quality products. It's a shame they don't make them all here, but they have their reasons. So why the 4 anvil rating? Well the knife wasn't has sharp from the factory as I would have liked compared to my Mini Bones Knife, which is my favorite knife to this day. Bottom line is if you are looking for an affordable knife that is built right this is a great choice, but ultimately any Buck knife is. I don't buy my knives anywhere else unless I need a specific type of cheap knife.
