The Buck 110 rests comfortably among the Pantheon of classic American knives. It’s been beloved of hunters, Boy Scouts and contractors since it was first introduced in 1962, and it has probably dressed more deer and earned more Totin’ Chip cards than any other folding knife ever made.
Handling it shows why it has withstood the test of time. Fine-grained wood scales, lustrous thick brass bolsters, and a hair-shaving sharp 420HC blade make it a perfect composition in wood, brass and steel. Kind of like my Henry Big Boy .44 Magnum.
Well…almost perfect. This proud rivet, along with a single tiny brass stain, escaped Buck’s final QC by hiding on the inside of the blister packaging. I doubt they’ll factor heavily into the final review ratings, however.
