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.

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
