Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, Weight, Handle Material
Cons: Handle Feel, None
I love my Buck knives and I got this to replace one I lost on a recent out of town trip. I had that knife well over a decade and probably loved it mire than any of my previous pocket knives, so I was surprisingly disappointed when I took it out of its box and put in my pocket, only to have it snag on the lip of the pocket. I took the knife out to inspect it, only to find the center retaining pin not fully seated. A second look revealed it was seated fully, but one side of the pin was sticking further out than it should and had a sharp edge I bought two at the same time, so thinking thus was a fluke, I pulled out the second only to find the same issue. My original was smooth on the sides and never snagged. Other than this defect on each knife, it seems to be just as great as my previous Mini Buck. If it weren't for that, I would have given it a rating of 5.
