Pros: Blade Material, Finish, Handle Material, Weight, Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Handle Material
This is a beautiful drop point knife, it takes a shaving edge and fits my larger hands extremely well. It's comfortable both right side up and upside down. Has a great belly for slicing, but is a bit thick for kitchen work. However, the pommel is brass and is threaded on to the rat tail tang as well as glued. The brass is far softer than the 420HC steel. On my first knife I hit the pommel and it became cockeyed. When I tried to true it, the pommel stripped off, and the knife disassembled itself. Buck replaced it no questions asked and the abuse was admittedly my fault, but be wary of this, for it can be stripped off.
