BU112: 112 Ranger

Buck Knives

It all began with the 110 Folding Hunter. The 110 could be found on a lot of sailor's belts in the Navy. One day, a couple of soldiers got into a fight and the 110 Folding Hunter was used. As a result, the captain issued a decree that knives carried could not have a blade length of a certain size. The 110 ended up being too long, so Buck Knives took the initiative and created the Ranger, a smaller version of the 110. The 112 is another traditional favorite. 

As originally introduced in the 1960s the 112 once again features a genuine ebony hardwood handle. This ethically sourced Crelicam ebony supports replanting efforts in the Congo Basin rainforest, while providing Buck Knives with a genuine hardwood handle that is nearly indestructible. 

*Please note: When Buck makes handles out of natural products, you will find nature's own "brandmarks." In most cases, these markings are not flaws, rather nature's own design. Colors and markings will vary from handle to handle. Each one will have its own personality and distinctive look unlike handles created from man-made materials.*

How in the world can one not love this knife? A perfect EDC. I know this because it's been on my hip for over 20 years. Yep, it's a two hander. You knew this, though. A "Traditional". Absolutely beautiful and rock solid. HELL TO THE ABSOLUTELY YES, I will always recommend this knife! Can't wait for the return to Ebony wood; I WILL buy one.

Legend with design flaws
It is undoubtedly a legendary beauty. It is lovely and extremely well made but the design can be improved. The blade will be over closed when there is pressure on the spine in close position causing the edge on the tip hitting the back spacer and blunt the edge on that part. Or if you snap close the blade with the lock back tension, the same thing will happen. It is a design flaw and need to be improved. Nice and sturdy sheath tho.

Perfectly sized
I have large hands but prefer working with a relatively short blade, as a result I find most hunting knives to have either blades that are a bit too big, or handles that are a bit to small, sometimes both. More than anything else I have tried I find the 112 to be just about perfect in size. I've used it for everything from cleaning fish to quartering moose and due to its size and versatile blade design it has worked very well. The build quality is good, typical of most Buck knives it has a handle that is very comfortable when held the way it was designed to be held, and not so well suited to being held in the numerous other positions required when actually working with a knife, not too bad though. The steel is decent, it wont quarter an elk without needing a few touch up's along the way, but it will dress and skin a deer needing only a few swipes on the stone to bring it back to shaving sharp. Plenty of knife for most jobs.
