Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Blade Material, None
Cons: Sheath
Solid Blade
The design is solid, rigid grip, and sharp blade edge. I managed to cut myself on accident, very easily. My only complaint is the cheap nylon sheath, imported from China.

my buck protege combo with sheath
I have the BUCK protégé 444 & the 442 both knives fit in the same nylon sheath and make a good hunting combo the set that I have are the plain edge series one is grey and one is black mine was made in 1997 and have been good knives they are light weight and don't notice them on your belt at all when walking woods. The closest thing today Buck makes is the Maxlite series that are lock blades they are made in a small size and a bigger size but these are regular pocket knives so they do not make a sheath for these. I bought this set in 1997 my freshman year of high school back then for the combo with sheath was $35 . They are made from 420 HC steel and with a good quality stone u can get these knives razor sharp I have sharpeners that I use that was made in the 1920's and 1930's. I am now 30 yrs old and have six different versions of buck knives and it is the only brand I hunt with

Nice Inexpensive Carry
Purchased this as a all-around/fishing knife. Textured, rubberized handle is great for wet hands. Holds a nice edge. Description says "sheath" incluced, but since it's a folder, it's obviously not. Decently balanced with overall nice finish. Would buy again if I needed another inexpensive knife for fishing that I wouldn't be terribly upset if I lost in a stream/lake. Editor's note: We went in the back and checked the item, and it does come with a sheath.
