BU055BRS: The 55 Folding Hunter
Buck Knives
 
A very good idea, now further evolved.

Buck Knives brought a breakthrough to market in 1964 with the 110 Folding Hunter: The first folder that locked open, but could be carried safely and compactly. Now we've updated that classic configuration to the intriguing The 55... an heirloom-sized version of the 110 that could easily become known as "My first Buck knife." It still has a hunting pedigree, but it's an outstanding everyday carry knife. These have brass bolsters and liners, positive lock-open system and handsome Walnut handles.

Folding knife review
I have nothing to complain about with this neat little folder for everyday use. It was sharp enough to shave hair with right out of the box. It is conveniently carried and seems very stable with a solid lock. Feels good in the hand. Blade is concave-grinded, which is suitable for carving wood, for example. The brass handle looks very nice. Note that you probably should rub some oil into the wood scales, because they seemed a bit dry to me. It lacks pocket clip, but I am not concerned about this on a knife of this small size, and traditional design.
