Buck Knives

The long blade enhances the exquisite appearance, while creating a hunting knife that makes de-boning a lot simpler. Exclusive, elite, and luxurious, the General remains an exceptional choice for a hunting knife or simply as a collectible. Either way, it is a conversation starter.

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.

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.

Buck General
This newly made General is interesting to me because I own a few similar Buck fixed blade knives from the 1970s. I remember seeing this large General in stores back then. This one I just received is exactly like my old Buck fixed blade knives in terms of design, handle, and all minor details. It's like if I had bought it with the others way back then. That said, it is a robust blade with a handle that fits the hand perfectly. It is balanced, cuts cleanly and is well made and finished. Buck should be proud of its heritage and continued quality.

120 General Knife
My wife sent this to me in Vietnam. I had asked for a Bowie knife but in Coles County IL she could not find a Bowie knife and she didn't know what one was. A store sold her the Buck General. It didn't have the heft of a Bowie knife for chopping coconuts open or cutting bamboo. But I kept it razor sharp and it worked. I was in the 1st Air Cavalry 8th battalion and I don't know how may people tried to buy it from me, even chopper pilots. I got my name engraved on it (Victor Castle) in Quin Nhon when I was in the hospital. I kept it strapped on my back . I lost it when I was bring it with me and stuck it in my cargo pocket, when I caught a jeep ride to the airstrip. I hope some other grunt got it and was able to use it in the field. It never rusted and held a good edge. Coconuts outside shell is not easy to chop open . The sheath held up good.
