Review: Buck 110 Knife

To say the Buck 110 changed how outdoorsmen carry knives is like saying Henry Ford was merely forward-thinking. No, the Buck 110 knife defined a moment in history.

Slip a Buck 110 knife into your pocket, and you're carrying a piece of hunting history.

Its explosive popularity hit camps across 1960s North America almost overnight. The days of carrying bulky kitchen or military knives into the field were over. Cutting power was now as easy as slipping the Buck 110‘s canoe-shaped frame into a pocket.

I’m a knife nut anyway, but nothing in my collection rivals the prestige of the Buck 110. It’s a top choice when I’m working at my ranch, hunting in the field or just going about daily business.

There’s a certain comfort in knowing the Buck 110‘s design is older than I am. It’s like having a mentor in my pocket, a reminder of how to do things right the first time. From the silky-smooth lockback release that keeps its 3 3/4-inch clip blade standing at attention to the brass bolsters on the handle, the Buck 110 showcases the beauty of performance-driven simplicity.

Trappers, predator hunters and all other outdoorsmen owe it to themselves to add a Buck 110 to their knife collection. They’ll be part of a hunting story far larger than themselves. They’ll also have a knife that they can count on, a real friend.v

  1. I bought mine in 1974. It is my main knife–it was my first deer hunting knife and it has never let me down. I have many other knives now, but I measure all of them by my Buck 110. If I were to have but one knife it would be the 110.

  2. I am only thirty years old and have a BUCK 110 that is older than me. My Buck 110 was made from 1974/1980 two dot series I had a brand new one made in 1999 that I traded a friend to get his made from 1974/1980 and I still have it to this day even used it on my first deer in 2007 and used it squirrel hunting that year also the old one made from 1974/1980 still has the original sheath and is made from the 440C steel. I just bought a brand new 2013 BUCK 110 from the Buck web site got it on 1/21/13 and have carried it since I am a avid Buck fan and knife user this brand is the only brand I hunt with at all the 420 HC steel can get like a razor blade due to the antique sharpening equipment that I own that is 100 to 130 years old.

  3. I’ve had at least one buck 110 in my inventory since 1968. In my youth I did a variety of jobs, from warehouseman to land surveyor. This is the knife I always knew would do what needed done, from cutting up cardboard to trimming small limbs, opening cans, gutting everything from squirrels and bunnies to deer and wild hogs. Whatever needed cutting, it would cut and hold it’s edge. Most of the Viet Nam veterans I know carried a Buck 110 in combat. I guess that would make this knife the granddaddy of all today’s tactical folders. I got a new one a few years back. It’s just as capable now as all the ones I’ve carried over the years have been.
