For 20$ there's no reason to not own this Knife . Bought it as a beater and ended up being my favorite knife under 100$ and.... it's USA made with a forever warranty. Bucks version of 420 isn't bad either

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Feel, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip
Very Good All Around Knife
Knife is excellent "carry" knife for general use. I use it to cut rope and cardboard, tape and small branches. This is not a fighting knife. Blade is Buck USA; sharp, properly shaped and locks securely with the proper type of lock. Knife action is hard and stiff, even with thumb stud almost need two hands to open. Pocket clip is very light and easily dislodged. You will lose this knife if you rely on the pocket clip. Love the lanyard hole in the handle, it's a great way to secure the knife. The weight and general configuration of the knife is near perfect. A really great knife for everyday use. The service from KnifeCenter was and always has been amazing!!!

Buck knives are my everyday companion. I use these from the kitchen and in the field. There light weight is a virtue. Great quality and construction. Full length spine for strength. American made, great price, doesn't get any better.
