Description
BU55: 055 The 55
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 woodgrain handles.

Cons: None
A SMALLER SIBLING OF BUCK'S LEGENDARY 110
This smaller sibling of Buck's legendary 110 leaves nothing to be desired.It fits in your hand like every knife should and it's smaller size makes this gem able to be carried when wearing dress clothes.This super sharp knife with it's fine lines has a thousand uses from skinning game to slicing a tomato.This great knife earns a rating of 4.5 out of 5.The only con that keeps it from being a perfect 5 is that Buck should have included a sheath.
