Buck 501 Squire Folding Knife 2-3/4" Satin Blade, Rosewood Dymondwood Handles - 2598
BU501: 501 Squire Knife
Classic, compact, everyday carry. Similar in size to the 55™, the drop point blade of the Squire provides good control for slicing. Easy opening and closing with the nail notch and lockback design.
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.
This blade is full bellied with a strong, thick point for heavier tasks. It can also be used as a general work knife. The top of the blade drops down toward the tip, which minimizes accidental puncturing while skinning. The drop point blade is strong and very versatile.
