Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars

Price Paid: $12.99

Summary

The Buck Trio is a nice little knife suited for everyday carry. It has 3 blades for an assortment of cutting tasks. The blades are 420J2 stainless steel with good edge retention and rust resistant.

Pros

  • Solid construction and durable
  • Lightweight
  • Aesthetically pleasing

Cons

  • Made in China

I have owned many different Buck knives over the years, so when I saw this little knife on sale I couldn't resist. One of the main reasons I felt I should have it is because I needed a small knife to slip into my trousers when I get dressed up. This knife has a pleasing, non-threatening appearance makes this knife perfect for occasions when you want to carry but can't carry a larger outdoor/tactical knife.

Now by saying this I don't mean that this isn't good for outdoor use, because this is a well constructed knife built with quality materials. It's just not that big and can't handle some of the bigger chores one may encounter in the out of doors.

It has 3 blades, modified clip point (2 1/2"), a sheepsfoot (1 3/4"), and a spey blade (1 11/16"). All are made with 420J2 stainless steel. Its not quite as good as the 420HC stainless steel that Buck uses in its American made folders, but it's not too shabby either. It has good edge retention and good rust resistance. The blades are not locking.

The handle is made of  woodgrain and has Nickle Silver bolsters. The length is 3 1/4" and weighs 1.9 oz.

I have used this knife several times for some small chores and must say that it is fully capable of many small cutting tasks one encounters on a daily basis. It is a small knife but worthy of everyday carry, even in the backwoods.
