Description
BU0065BKSBH: Buck/Hood Punk 5-5/8" Fixed Blade, Micarta Scales
Buck Knives
 
The Buck/Hood Punk is designed to be an outdoor/survival/adventure knife that can handle even the most rugged and tough conditions. Based on Ron Hood’s design and built to Buck's quality standards, the Punk helps ensure survival in extreme conditions. It is easily carried in a sheath, and extreme enough for any hard core task. The secure and comfortable Micarta® handles can be removed, and the blade integrates the Shock Mitigation System (SMS) to reduce shock and wasted energy during use. The Punk comes with a heavy duty M.O.L.L.E. compatible nylon sheath with storage pouch. The Punk will take care of you if you find yourself in an extreme situation. Buck's heat treatment process in specific temperature controlled atmospheres optimizes the steel's strength, edge retention, corrosion resistance, and sets the hardness to 57-59 HRC.

With a continued commitment to providing the best survival products in the market and a desire to honor the late Ron Hood’s legacy, Buck is moving forward with Ron Hood’s concepts to bring more Buck/Hood knives to those who depend upon them.

Ron Hood cultivated his early wilderness interests as a member of the Military Intelligence Community while in the Army Security Agency (ASA). Ron spent a year at a remote outpost in the Middle East and nearly 18 months on the ground in Vietnam. After his four years of military service he completed his MS and his doctoral studies and for over 20 years taught accredited classes in Wilderness Skills at two universities, authored numerous articles for national magazines and published a guidebook to the Sierra Nevada of California. Ron spent much of his time practicing and studying skills with native populations around the world.

Ron has been featured in dozens of TV programs and has produced 27 award winning survival training videos that are widely considered to be the best survival training aids in the world. He's was also the producer of Survival Quarterly Magazine, with his wife Karen, who continues to publish the magazine in Ron's honor.

Pros: Blade Material, Handle Material, Sheath/Scabbard, None
Cons: Overall Quality, Finish, Blade Sharpness
Could have been great
I recently purchased the punk as an upgrade to a Mora that I have carried for years. I based my decision on the blade shape and steel used. As it came out of the box the handle scales were almost as sharp as the blade itself. After cleaning up and rounding off the scales [my mistake otherwise I would have returned it ] I took another look at the edge. It had a pronounced shoulder making it difficult to cut anything other than cordage. While not insurmountable, for the money spent it should have been ready to use without requiring the hilt to be reshaped and the edge re-profiled and reground. In short, with a little t l c and attention to detail it could have been great rather than on the low side of mediocre.

Don't call it a Punk
Just received my "punk" a few days ago. I originally wanted the Hoodlum,but when I learned of this mini version, I just had to have it. While I am a fan of large survival knives, I decided to go" lite" and purchased the Punk. Well...this knife is no punk at all. Great quality and workmanship. Used it sparingly in the back yard. Excellent feather stick making capability and while not a monster chopper, it got the job done. Sheath is top notch with plenty of room for a mini survival kit, Firesteel and sharpener. Can't wait to take it camping this spring!
