Available Features and Options

One Handed Opening

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.

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.

Great Quality

Very good quality knife, my grandpa recently bought this for me as an upgrade from my older, smaller knife The 55. The single hand opening system is very smooth and effective. One possible con is that the clip is slim and might be a problem when latching onto thicker materials.

Perfect everyday carry.

I've had this knife in my pocket for over 2 years now as an edc. This knife is the perfect tool, especially for the price. I went through a bad year of knives getting snagged/bent/broken on seats via the clip and wasted 100's of dollars replacing them. This is the first buck I've owned and I could not be more satisfied.

Best folding knife ever

This is my favorite folder knife. The price is really good. It comes nearly razor sharp.

Fathers day gift

I am very pleased with this particular knife. Very well made and quite stylish. One handed opening is nice and easy, while the action is not too loose to cause you to fumble with it. The blade sits dead center when closed and the blade does not rest on the frame of the knife. Over all excellent knife.

Before I purchased this folder, I was dead set. I had to have an assisted opening knife that looked fancy and shiny it bragging complex or whatever. I seen this knife at my local hunting supply store and tested it out and man was i impressed! The action is so smooth and fast that it seems like spring assist! The look is tactical but practical, not too flashy but doesn't sit in the background. I carry this as my edc and every time it leaves my pocket, it turns some heads every time. The price, performance and quality all get 10/10. Plus it's razor sharp...literally. I can shave with this blade right out of the box!

inner blade stop keeps ruining edge on blade

I love the knife, but the "stop" inside the handle that the blade rests on keeps taking a divot out of my blade edge. I am contacting your warranty dept concerning this

Good knife, but finicky

So this is actually my second 845 and my 15th or so buck knife. Typical buck quality (excellent for the price) however there are a few drawbacks. But more about that in a minute. The steel liners are press rivited together, which is excellent for strength and durability, however i work outside and often deal with sand, metal shavings and other fine powdery materials which, over the, will collect in the hinge machinism and bind up the knife preventing it from opening. Now i personally hate sending knives back to the factory for anything other than major repairs so i attempted to disassemble it for cleaning at which point i encountered those lovely press rivets which also completely prevented me from cleaning the hinge so now im going to be down a good knife while i send this one back to the factory. 4 out of 5 stars only because of the difficulty to maintain without a trip to the factory
