Buck 055 The 55 Folding Hunter 2.375" Plain Blade, American Walnut Handles - 5684
BU055BRS: The 55 Folding Hunter
A very good idea, now further evolved.
Buck Knives brought a breakthrough to market in 1964 with the 110 Folding Hunter: The first folder that locked open, but could be carried safely and compactly. Now we've updated that classic configuration to the intriguing The 55... an heirloom-sized version of the 110 that could easily become known as "My first Buck knife." It still has a hunting pedigree, but it's an outstanding everyday carry knife. These have brass bolsters and liners, positive lock-open system and handsome Walnut handles.
