I own a few Buck knives and they are a pleasure to use: sharpen easy and stay sharp. Big thank you to my wife and the craftsman at Buck who made this knife.

I can only attempt to imagine the amount of gutting and skinning of big game that Buck knives have attended to. They are great knives and still at a reasonable price.

Very nice. Frisky will envy that one.

That's a nice all-around knife! It'll come in handy on your next deer! Nice sheath too!

Nice brown phase of there sheath! Same steel as the original line?

Good Shooting->->->->Craig

From: Ken Williams
Date: 06-Nov-17




I thought the sheath was top notch. My wife said she had a choice of steels. She said she asked for a recommendation from Buck and they recommended 420. I am quite happy with her choice. Sharpens easy, no maintenance, and stays sharp. I can usually skin and quarter 3 or 4 deer with my Buck 420 caping knife.

Hard to beat a Buck knife for hunting. And fairly affordable to most anyone.

From: GLF
Date: 06-Nov-17




You can tie up alot of money in that custom shop,lol. Congrats on a great knife. I got one just like it with a wood handle.

Very nice. Who doesn't have a Buck knife somewhere in their hunting history.

From: Frisky
Date: 06-Nov-17




From the factory, Bucks will shave hair, but I take them to a new level with steeling. That knife will gut and butcher a deer without touchup. I use a shorter blade for skinning, preferring around 3" to 3.5" for that job. Even when you do have to touch up the blade, a few strokes on a steel and you're back in business.

All of the knife-steel snobs look down on these knives for having "cheap" steel or not "their favorite" kind of steel. I think those guys have never owned and used a Buck knife because I have a couple of 110 folders and a 119 and another smaller fixed blade. My experience has been they are great knives.

From: GLF
Date: 06-Nov-17




You can custom order a buck and get a s30v blade or a 5160 or other steels if you so choose. So for 20-50 bucks more the knife snobs can get it their way. I had a 119 in s30v and hated it. I want something easier to sharpen in the field. bucks heat treating process works well enough that their stock steel is perfect for me.

From: Catsailor

Yep you have a keeper there. The knife and your wife. I like that sheath. I have a couple 119's. I never saw that sheath before.

From: Ken Williams
Date: 06-Nov-17




I think the same thing, Gary. Their stock 420 meets all my needs.

From: Ken Williams
Date: 06-Nov-17




Me either, Tom. I thought all they had was the black one for the 119

I build knives out about every tool steel used in the stamping industry. I aways carry my 317 Buck 2 blade folding knife. My wife gave it to me 40 years ago.

I've had a 119 for over 40 years. Great knife, and lifetime warranty too!

From: DanaC

Bill Heavey did a column in 'Field & Stream' a while back, about custom knife makers. Some of the best prefer 'ordinary' steel because they know how to work with it.

Buck has a long history with the 400 series stainless, which counts for a lot.

Nice knife!

Just thought I'd share a email I sent Buck and more importantly, their response back :

My wife recently ordered a Custom 119 from Buck's Custom Knife shop and I was very pleased with my knife. I am a traditional bowhunter and a member of a internet bowhunters forum called "Leatherwall". I was so pleased with my new knife, I started a thread about it. Seems lots of folks like Buck knives. I am forwarding a link to the thread so you can read for yourselves what bowhunters all over the USA and beyond think of Buck and their commitment to excellence:

By the way, my wife also said you guys were a pleasure to deal with all the way through from ordering to delivery.

Sincerely, Ken Williams Chatham, Va.

Thank you Ken for the feedback. I enjoyed reading the comments too. It’s one of my favorite things about working here, the history and tradition with our brand. Not all company’s get to boast such a great heritage. And I’m glad we are living up to our reputation!

I’m also glad that your wife enjoyed her experience with our representatives.

Hope this knife is with you for years and brings years of easily skinned and quartered game!

Happy anniversary!

Thank you!

Nice knife and even nicer wife! I helped a guy track his buck a few years ago and he must have dropped his Buck near my buddies camp, I found it the next day coming back from a hunt and we drove to his camp but he was gone. I left his knife on a table outside his camper with a note. I didn't make it back to my buddies camp that season, but the guy was so grateful he dropped off two cases of beer when he got back and saw it.

That reminds me, my buddy owes me a case of beer...

Ken, Congratulations on the wife and the knife. Before she passed my wife would always say; "I'm not getting you another knife this year, you have too many already." And sure enough, come my birthday or our anniversary there would be a knife. One year she bought me a Buck Bowie from the Custom Shop and it's among my most cherished possessions. Thanks for sharing your story and the incredible kindness of your wife. Lance.

Great knife a knife can be so much more just a tool. Every time you look at your knife you will thing of your wife with fondness. 30 years ago my dad me a buck 112. I have sure used it over the years. This year my wife and son surprised me with another 112. Here is the two of them. Can you guess which one is 30 years old?

Holy mackeral now that'd be a real treasure to pass on right there. Dang that's something else. TOO cool! Thanks for the photo!

Ken, that's really cool. I really like the sheath.

So can you get a custom made knife of any model they make???

Thanks, Bowmania. I looked at their website and these are models they show as being available to customize: 110, 112, 113, 119, 501, 503, 505 and 916.

I cut and pasted their web URL

I was curious myself, so I went to their site and designed a 110. Here is a screenshot of it. Their site is very user friendly.

I bought this 110 in 1972 for $19 and change. It’s been a good’un!

This is the original leather sheath too. Slightly modified. :-)

Bucks knives are an excellent value.

I have never owned a Buck knife so I just ordered two Buck mini spitfires.One for me and one for a gift for my neighbor who invited me to go to deer camp with him and his family up in the U.P. of Michigan near Rapid River.I have hunted my whole life here in the thumb of Michigan and always wanted to go to deer camp and was really surprised to be asked.I can't wait for next week.

Buck knives ARE a fantastic value. An unbelievable value. My last 110 I got two years ago at Walmart for -get this- $27.97 Now that is really hard to believe considering the quality of that knife. A sit down lunch for you and wife is more than that without a tip.

I lost my 110 about 10 years ago..... I finally replaced it with the 50 year anniversary knife at Cabelas for about 35 bucks.... The young guy working the knife counter tried to talk me out of a Buck because he said they aren't made in the USA anymore.... I had to show him the USA stamp on the blade to show him that some of the Bucks are still made in the USA..... just like Danner Boots and Carhart......
