Buck 110 Folding Hunter Lockback Folding Knife Review

, , ,

Price: $30

The knife opens easily and locks into place - there is no play in the blade once it is locked back. This knife doesn't have all the bells and whistles of some of the models that are available today, but the simple design is tried and true, and has stood the test of time.

The Buck 110 Folding Hunter Lockback folding knife is Buck’s signature knife, and originally made its debut in 1962. Many still use their original Buck 110 knives from the 1960′s, and they are still just as effective today! The knife is backed by Buck’s 4-Ever Unconditional Lifetime Warranty.

Buck 110 Folding Hunter Lockback Blade

Buck 110 Blade

The 3-3/4-inch blade is made of 420HC stainless steel. This type of steel has more carbon than the 420, so this steel will hold an edge better. It is quite resistant to corrosion, and is easy to sharpen.

This blade is ideal for detail work, such as piercing, or getting into tight places to make cuts. The blade of the knife is extremely sharp upon arrival.

Buck 110 Folding Hunter Lockback Knife Handle

Buck 110 handleThe handle is made of Macassar Ebony Dymondwood, and features polished brass bolsters. This look is both handsome and classic – it has stayed in style since the 1960′s. Since the knife is made of natural woodgrain, there may be variation between knives. The handle is a perfect size and shape for  for most hands, and it is large enough to get a good grasp.

The lock on the Buck 110 lock has proven itself for nearly 40 years and it is still going strong. Although it may not be the toughest lock by todays standards, it is plenty reliable for a knife this size. With normal use this knife will not unlock unintentionally.

Overall Design

The downside to this knife is that it is rather large for a pocket knife; at 4-7/8″ when closed, it may not fit comfortably into all pockets. It comes with a black leather sheath, which is generally the handiest way to carry this Buck 110. The knife weighs in at 7.2 ounces.

The Buck 110 opens easily and locks into place – there is no play in the blade once it is locked back. This knife doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of some of the models that are available today, but the simple design is tried and true, and has stood the test of time.
