Buck 110 Folding Hunter
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $34
This is probably the most replicated model in the world, but nothing comes even close to the real deal.
- Lock back locks tight
- Very stable
- Big enough to do anything
- There was a warning on the packaging stating the material(s) used in this particular knife, according to California legislation or something, have some cancer generating elements in it
I do not know what they had used in the manufactoring process causing harm to human health, but the knife is superbly made. Very dependable, I say this because I had friends utilizing it for years, sharpness is great; I will see how it will retain the edge.
Still very reasonably priced. Thick leather sheet is sturdy. What else one asks from a knife. I am very pleased to have it.
This folding knife has been around for a long time. Not to many have lasted as long as this one.
This knife has a classic shape and classic looks. The brass and wood make for a lot of eye appeal. Folded up it comes in around 4 inches. The blade has a nice point to it, it goes by different names, clip, pointer, drop point, etc. The blade is stainless, which seems to be the standard for store bought knives now.
The wood handle feels good in your hand when it is cold out. Unlike a plasitc or metal handles. The carry sheath is well made and fits on the belt nicely. It keeps it handy on your belt instead of searching the camp or pack.
Buck knives carry a lifetime warranty, nothing but praise for that.
These knives do not come as sharp as they could be. They don't hold the best edge for long periods of time until you do some dressing to it. If you have good oil or water stones to work with you can put a really nice edge on it, which will change everything about this knife as it comes out of the package.
I would call this knife a utility style knife. Cutting rope, makeing shaving for fire, light duty work, etc. It is not an axe. I watched a man destory one and got angry about its quality because he could not chop off small limbs with it. It is not in the class with a Leek either, but I don't think it was designed to be.
If you want to have a nice carry knife for yard work, simple camp work, this will do. The price makes it hard to beat. It is better than average for folding knives and lasts a long time with care.
