Buck 110 Hunter Review
Hoyt Buck produced the first Buck knife in 1902 in his blacksmith shop from a worn out file. Eventually his son Al buck took over the company and incorporated in 1961. A few years later they revolutionized the industry with the Buck 110 Hunter. Many of us have probably owned several of these. I have lost several but i always buy another.
Debuting in 1962 the model 110 hunter featured a wood and brass handle that hasn’t changed in over 50 years. When you think of a folding knife you probably picture this first.
The blade is a 3 3/4 inches long locking clip point blade of 420HC steel. Featuring bucks own hardening techniques this is a very tough blade that will hold an edge great. Closed length is 4 7/8 inches. At 7.2 ounces many people may complain about the weight. I’m not one of them, a lighter knife simply won’t have the quality that this does.
Many people may also complain that new from factory, the blade is hard to open. Again to me, tight tolerances are a sign of quality. If this is a problem for you, by all means go get yourself a lighter, spring assisted knife but you simply won’t have the quality of the Buck 110 Hunter. Many people have had these knives for decades and they are still going strong.
One legitimate complaint isn’t even the knife itself. It comes with a black leather sheath that many people consider cheap. Decide for yourself and if your not happy Buck does offer more sheath options for the Buck 110 Hunter.
As with all their knives the Buck 110 Hunter comes with Bucks forever warranty. If you’re not at all satisfied return it for repair or an exchange.
