I bought this on a whim after signing up for that free two-day delivery dealy and my God, am I glad I did! I feel so useful with this little number is nestled discreetly in that formerly useless change pocket in my jeans. This smokin' babe at the company Xmas Secret Santa party got a new pair of headphones in one of those ungodly plastic packages that are just about impossible to open. Buck Gent (and yours truly!!) to the rescue. Bam, bam, at your service, ma'am! Made the rest of the office guys look like real pansies. Also, last night my new Neil Diamond box set arrived last night (thanks Amazon!!! You rock me gently/Never slowly!/it's so easy/don't you know/that I have never got customer service [and satisfaction!!!] like this before!)! I used the gent to open the package, and I'm sittin' pretty with a 1/2 ounce of cold steel in my pocket and like 700 minutes of the NeilCat peelin' the paint off the walls. If you're not some doofus trying to prove a point with some lame 7-inch knife on his belt at Target (who are these guys!!?!), this little Gent is gonna be the guest of honor at the party of the rest of your life.

Very thin, very sharp, very strong, very well made. I've had mine for more than 10 years and it's a real gem. A friend gave it to me for a Christmas present and it was the perfect gift.

I purchased this knife for my father to replace his Gerber that I got his years ago that he broke (pry bar? I think not) and I will have to say when I opened this knife to give it to him i was very pleased with it. It has some good weight to it for its size (very small, too small for my liking) and it was also very, very sharp. If you are looking for a nice pocket knife that is about 2 inches closed I highly recommend this knife. Also one of the best things about this knife is it's made in the USA which Gerber does not do anymore. Oh and I almost forgot to say that my father started to use/carry this knife he fell in love with it.

Good pocket knife for those who don't want a bulky knife either in their pocket or hanging out the side. Excellent quality that doesn't have any screws to come undone.

When I first received this knife I found it uncomfortable because of the burrs on the lock release lever and the cutouts around the release. I spent much time and effort grinding and smoothing these burrs and now the knife feels very nice in the hand.

In the process of making the above mods I discovered that the case is very soft and can be scratched easily. A fingernail can mark it. The hollow ground portion of the blade has numerous blemishes of some type. Checking them under a 10X loupe reveals that there is no indentation in the metal but they just don't look very nice. The quality of construction of this Buck doesn't approach the quality of my other Bucks that are 20 to 30 years old.

The lock is very solid and notifies you with a definite click when it is locked. Some other new knives I've purchased lately don't let you know and you think they are locked open when they are not. This Buck does not have that problem.

The knife is very slim and there is hardly any outline when carried in the pants pocket. I don't even know I have it. This is not to say the knife is light. For its size it is very sturdy and strong looking. I feel that it could take a punishment that you would not expect from such a small knife.

I am very happy with the knife after the mods and it is my EDC knife.

Great little knife that I can carry without thinking about it. Very useful for the many small jobs like cutting open plastic packaging. I have other Buck knives for heavier jobs, including a 750 Redpoint and a 110 Hunting Knife. Each is just right for what it is. The Gent fits in a wallet and it about the thickness of 3 credit cards. You can forget you have it until you need it and it is always there, but it is for relatively light use. The Redpoint is great for easy one-handed moderate use. The 110 is perfect for serious heavy duty use.

Purchased 6 of these, Made in USA, folding pocket knives as gifts for my son's Bluegrass band. Had them engraved with the band's logo and presented them to each band member when they played for our 40th anniversary party. They were thrilled. Quality product, Made in the USA at an excellent price.

Bought these for Christmas gifts for the guys this year and had their names engraved on them ( at a local jeweler ). I carry a buck and like the small practical use of a smaller pocket knife. I carry the same size knife but with the black cheap plastic handle. It is lighter weight. This one is heavier and a bit harder to handle. The lock opens a little more difficult than the one I carry. But this one has a classier look for a gentleman. I Like this company and what it stands for. Do read the little paper note to the buyer inside the box from the President of the co. Has a mom and pop feel to it, which I like and is rare these days of acquisitions and mega- corporations.

Bought this knife to replace the knife my husband had carried for about ten years. It was a Winchester and to be honest I was leary of changing brands but could not find one that looked like his old one made by them anymore. This Buck was so close to the same he was thrilled and the craftmanship is worthy as well as the waranty. There are a couple more about the same size that I'd like to get him too just to be safe and make sure he has just the right one! Buck it is for me as far as gift shopping.

This is a great knife to get engraved. I ordered 10 for a upcoming wedding party and the engraving turned out great. The knife seems very solid and well built. My only complaint is that the blade portion is small compared to the handle. This is a great small knife to carry in your pocket that will go unnoticed even in your Sunday best.
