Buck Knives
 
The perfect balance of weight and design give this knife the smoothest one-handed, manual action on the market. Offered with Rubberized scales and 420HC Satin Finish blade.
Features
  • One-Handed Opening - Has a thumb stud, blade hole or other feature to facilitate one-hand use. Some models are one-hand opening and one-hand closing as well.
  • 420HC Steel - 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.
  • Drop Point - 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.

  • Blade Length: 3-1/2" (8.9 cm)
  • Blade Material: Satin Finish 420HC Stainless Steel
  • Carry System: Black, heavy duty nylon sheath

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material, None
Cons: Weight, Handle Material
Great blade, poor handle steel
The blade is great, but the steel under the scales rusts pretty easily even when used in dry conditions most of the time.
