Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $150 (in Norway)

Fairly good knife. Have used it for a few hikes, about three weeks total. 

 

Pros:

-pretty lightweight

-blade feels secure in open position

-holds an edge pretty well

-good clip holds the knife in place

 

Cons:

-handle could have smoother edges

-almost fell apart when I tried to split some 1" firewood lengthwise to make some kindling

-needs a torx-head screwdriver to tighten it up, and who brings that on a hike if the need occurs?

 

A good knife for gutting fish, cutting ropes and do some light whittling. But I'll bring my Cold Steel Master Hunter if I know  I have to rely on a knife for tougher needs.

Here's what other sites are saying:

With especially tough steel and a longer blade the Vantage Pro knife from Buck Knives has the highest quality steel in their Vantage line of knives. A tough S30V stainless steel blade slides easily out of the durable, CNC contoured G10 handle handle while a sturdy locking mechanism ensures a higher degree of safety.
