Buck Knives

Today, this larger hunting knife with a large clip blade for detail work, piercing and cutting in tight places for added control, is as popular as ever.

Pros: Finish, Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Weight, Sheath/Scabbard, None
Cons: Blade Material
Great for the price
This is a very good general use knife, nothing special here. They seem to HT the 420HC very good but still, why did they resort the tool steel? Anyway - that is a personal preference. Reading many reviews I note that people somehow get dumber and dumber. Throwing a knife which is not designed for that and complaining because it breaks? Please don't listen to those dumb people, the only minus for this great knife is the steel and that is just personal preference. I guess if it was tool steel, there'd be complaints about rust *facepalm*

25 Years
I have had my 119, for 25 years. It has hunted, fished, camped, and even been used to carve the Thanksgiving turkey. The knife has a few scratches on the blade, from use, but it has held up for 25 years, and will still shave.

Bought mine in 1990
I bought mine in 90, and initially used it for deer. After a little experience, I prefer a little smaller deer knife. However, this knife has handled many task, even carving turkeys at Thanksgiving. After 24 years, it will still shave. Yes, I tough the blade up after each use, I do take care of it. I have no idea how many camping trips this knife has made. It is one of my favorite bushcraft knives, as it will handle anything you throw at it. At some point, "After 24 years", I do need a new sheath, and I intend on having one custom made with a pocket for a sharpener. -- 24 years, used hard, and still shaves, that really says it all doesn't it? Anyone who puts down 420HC might just need to spend less time on a PC and more time in the real woods.
