Special Buck 119 For over 50 years, the Buck 119 has been the knife of choice for hunters. The knife's typical clip point 420HC blade gives it an iconic appearance and makes cutting jobs much simpler. This knife has a black polymer handle that matches the polished guard and pommel flawlessly. The strong steel blade is attached to the handle with a stainless steel rivet. The edge of the blade can be re-sharpened by any good knife sharpener.
There are many different types of knives available today. Each one has its own advantages and disadvantages. It's important to understand how each type of knife functions before you buy or use it. Here are the two most popular types of buck knives:
Fixed Blade Knives: These knives have a single blade that does not retract into the handle. They are easy to carry in the field because there is no metal to get in the way and they are very effective for skinning animals. The only disadvantage of fixed blade knives is that they are difficult to clean under running water. After skinning an animal, you will need to soak the blade in water to remove all traces of blood before continuing on with your trip.
Retractable Knives: These knives have a flat blade that extends out from the handle when used and retracts inside the handle when not in use. They are easier to carry than a fixed blade knife but still provide enough utility for hunting small game.
10/10. The Buck 112 was one of the sharpest knives I'd ever handled right out of the box. Because of the Paul Bos Heat Treat, a very sharp, constant edge can be applied to the blade and maintained. Although designed as a hunting knife, it's ideal for use in the field when you need something that will cut through anything from roots to bone. It has a razor-sharp finish that won't snag your clothing or skin. I would recommend this knife for anyone who wants a versatile tool that will last for years.
Here are some other great things about the Buck 112:
Steel: 1095 carbon steel, also known as plainsite, is super hard and tough. It's perfect for use with a handle made of leather or wood.
Sharpness and durability: this knife was manufactured using state-of-the-art technology and handmade in our factory in Mexico. The heat treatment process gives the blade an extra layer of protection so it can maintain its sharpness over time.
Size: the Buck 112 is available in several sizes, depending on the price you want to spend. There's a small, medium, large, and extra-large model for each size category. All sizes include a plastic belt sheath.
Buck has endeavored to develop a knife under this brand that will be suitable for anything you're intending on doing or hunting on your next trip. There are now two variants of these knives available: the standard Open Season knives, which are usually constructed of BOS 420HC Steel with DymaLux scales, and the Pro versions, which are made of S35V steel and Micarta scales. Both types of knife come with a nylon belt sheath.
Buck's goal was to create a functional knife that would not only provide good quality craftsmanship but also afford the user many years of reliable service. The Open Season is designed to be easy to open with one hand while providing enough resistance to the blade when closed to prevent it from being opened by a careless person. It comes with leather thumb straps and a nylon belt sheath.
The Buck Pro is an improved version of the Open Season with thicker, longer blades that are made of S35V steel instead of BOS 420HC. The Pro version comes with leather thumb straps and a nylon belt sheath. This is also one of Buck's more expensive knives but we feel it's worth it because the quality is there and it will last you for years if used properly.
Buck also makes some great camping knives that are perfect for hiking trips or camping sites that do not have a forge available. These knives can be bought separately or as part of a set with other useful tools such as axes, saws, and forks.
