The 110 Folding Hunter--A traditional favorite! Buck's Folding Hunter was created in 1963 when Al Buck decided that a revolutionary lockblade knife was needed by outdoorsmen who wanted a sturdy knife but did not want to carry a long fixed-blade knife. He was right and the result proved to be the key to the company's future. The challenge was to combine the strengths of other folding knives with locking mechanisms into a good-looking, reliable product. It wasn't easy, but after a series of refinements, the Model 110 was unveiled. Within six months, this innovation was the hottest knife in the industry. The Folding Hunter, after over 50 years, is still one of America's best-selling knives.
420HC STEEL - This is Buck's standard blade material because it approaches the wear resistance of high carbon alloys while delivering the corrosion resistance of chromium stainless steels. Add Buck's exclusive heat-treat process and you have a very user-friendly combination of superior corrosion resistance with excellent strength for wear resistance and durability. You also have a blade that is easy to resharpen. For best performance Buck hardens the blade to a Rockwell hardness of Rc 58.
Clip Point Blade - The crescent tip makes the blade thinner with a sharper point. This shape provides good control for detail work and cutting in tight places. It is also well suited for intentional punctures like new holes in your belt, etc. While the point of the blade is effective for detail work, it's not as strong as the thicker points on drop points and skinners.

I love it - looks great and quality is wonderful. Written by a customer while visiting buckknives.com
Only complaint- the release to unlock the blade is difficult to press down on to unlock and fold blade. I have oiled it but it is still hard to release the blade. Written by a customer while visiting buckknives.com
I had one of these years ago. I think it was 1978 when I got mine the first time as a gift from my father. This time I bought this for myself and could not be happier. What an awesome knife and made in America. Just love it. Written by a customer while visiting buckknives.com

My husband uses this knife every single day. He wears it on his belt and feels naked without it. Best. Knife. Ever. Written by a customer while visiting buckknives.com
I have big hands and this knife fits them. Handles excellently and cuts clean. Extra for the finger holds was well worth. Pretty cheep knife for a lifetime use. Written by a customer while visiting buckknives.com
The 110 is my go to EDC and the one knife I would pick if I had a choice of only one to carry for any given day or adventure. This knife has been with me through thick and thin. The only reason I bought another was so I could have two available and split them between backpacking/hunting bags and also always keep one of them on hand for an every day carry. I think everyone should have a knife like the 110 in order to appreciate a finely crafted sturdy built workhorse of a knife that also has class. Written by a customer while visiting buckknives.com
Bought this knife as a gift for my nephew for his crossover from cub to Boy Scout. When I opened the box and looked at the knife for the first time all I could say was that I wished it was for me!! The knife is beautiful! I hope it is something he will hold on to forever and pass down to further generations!! Written by a customer while visiting buckknives.com
It went missing for 10 years probably due to the curiosity of my boys it lay in the bushes covered with dirt and mud. The case recovered with a bit of leather oil and the wood handle needed some deep cleaning and oil but came back as well. The tip was broken and Buck replaced it cheerfully.

A+++++. Written by a customer while visiting buckknives.com
I Iove this knife. Had one for years and lost it in a recent move. Had my old one for 40 years and the new one is just as beautiful and sharp as my old one. The best knives ever.
The best folding knife for the money. Possible just the best folding knife period!
A must for any knife collector or anyone looking to get the ultimate workhorse. It is a little heavy but it is built solid.
All around carry knife. The quality is superb.
This classic knife came razor sharp out of the box and had solid lock up. Truly worth your money
Absolutely beautiful knife. No flaws.
