Buck Knives
Buck's industry-leading Ranger design is now available in EDC form and priced accordingly. As the 110s and 112s seem to go hand-in-hand, the 112 Slims were developed in conjunction with the 110 Slims as a modern solution for an everyday carry version of the 112 Ranger. With the same functionality as the 112 Ranger, the colorful Slims are truly an EDC option with one hand opening blades and designed for easy carry with a deep carry pocket clip.

A colorful EDC based on an American classic, the 112 Ranger, the 112 Slim possesses the same traditional features but sports a more modern look. The deep carry pocket clip is added based on the overwhelming customer demand and allows for quick and easy access in any situation. With easy one-handed opening, the 420HC stainless steel blade provides supreme edge retention and is finished with Buck's Advanced Edge2x Blade Technology. To decrease the weight and thickness, the heavy bolster and handles are replaced with a lightweight molded nylon while still maintaining the same quality and rigidity of the original 112.

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.

Clip Point Blade
The crescent tip makes the blade thinner with a sharper point. This shape provides good control for detail work and cutting in tight places. It is also well suited for intentional punctures like new holes in your belt, etc. While the point of the blade is effective for detail work, it's not as strong as the thicker points on drop points and skinners.

Cons: Blade Sharpness
Buck 112 Slim Ranger Select
This knife is MUCH lighter and quite a bit slimmer than the classic 110/ 112 folders. That, along with a well executed deep-carry pocket clip, will make it easy to get to while being fairly secure, as well as comfortable to carry all day long at work. Fit and finish are entirely acceptable for a knife in this price range. The blade centers well, the opening is stiff but smooth, and the lock engages solidly. As it arrived in the box, my blade was not "hair popping" sharp. It was, however, every bit as sharp as I'm likely to keep it, as it will be used as an all-day-every-day "workhorse". Overall, I am not "blown away" by this knife, but I am happy with my purchase at the price and expect to get good use out of it.

Cons: Sheath, None
I did not purchase here. I went through ---. I apologize. This is just a great knife; a pocket version that I have always wanted. The pocket clip can be a bit ostentatious. It should just be a simple deep carry design, black or not. I use it for work where my company actually does not approve of knives. I use it to break down boxes, slice through straps and belts. If one ever wanted a pocket version of the standard 112 Ranger, THIS IS IT. I just absolutely love this knife. I wore a 112 Ranger on my hip for over 20 years. This is the knife that I have to wear "discreetly" now when I am at work. The only "con" is that there is no sheath because one does not need one for a pocket carry.
