Buck Knives
The perfect balance of weight and design give this knife the smoothest one-handed, manual action on the market. Offered with Rubberized scales and 420HC Satin Finish blade.
  • 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.
  • Blade Length: 3-1/2" (8.9 cm)
  • Blade Material: Satin Finish 420HC Stainless Steel
  • Carry System: Black, heavy duty nylon sheath
  • Handle Material: Steel frame with rubberized sides
  • Length Closed: 5" (12.7 cm)
  • Weight: 8 oz. (227.8 g)
  • Made in USA

Cons: None
Heavy Duty
This knife is an absolute bank vault! Its heavy and built like a tank but I'm sure it will take a beating for years to come. I carry it every day (in it's sheath) doing chores around the ranch. Sharp out of the box and keeps it's edge quite well although I do keep up on the sharpening of all my knives. I like that it has the ability for scale replacement and that the scales are available from the Knife Center. A great knife for the buck (no pun intended).
