It is a good knife and has the quality of a buck knife.
Denny
Ballistic nylon is a much better material than artificial leather (or even real leather) for sheaths.

Not only is it a well made and very sharp knife, it is also very good looking.

This is a utilitarian knife. Not great aesthetically like other Bucks. My particular notes:

(1) This is a strong knife. Heavy gauge, robust, structural components throughout. The only elements that are not robust are the rosewood scales.

(2) The blade is thick, strong, and sharp. It has a simple curved edge which is easy to sharpen. S-shapes and beak's heads are effective cutting edges, but extremely difficult to re-sharpen by hand. Out of the box, this blade easily passed my standard newspaper test. Hold a single sheet of newspaper vertically with one hand on the top edge of the sheet and let the bottom edge dangle freely in mid-air. Then hold the knife in the other hand, pierce the newspaper near the top and slit the newspaper full length from top to bottom. If the blade is sharp, you can slit the newspaper multiple times without tearing it.

(3) Pivot joint is well designed, with a bronze washer on both sides of the blade. The pivot has an adjustment screw. This is a great feature because all pivot joints eventually wear and develop excess play. With this knife, you just tighten the screw to eliminate any excess play.

(4) Blade lock is a liner lock. Once engaged, the blade is secure, with no play. My one major neg about this knife: If you open the blade quickly (with a snap or a flick), the liner lock engages reliably. If you open the blade slowly and deliberately, however, the liner lock frequently does not engage. You then need to close it part way and flick it open.

(5). Secure grip. The rosewood scales have a smooth finish, but there are anti-slip ridges along the spine of the blade, along the liner lock, and along the butt of the handle.

(6) Aside from the cutting edge (of course!

I needed something for mid-duty jobs that pocket knives struggled with. A sergeant in my company was fond of saying, "A weapons system that does eight things does eight things poorly." I believe that applies to most small, "multi-purpose" knives - unless supplemented by the Real Deal.

Buck's 271 Alpha Dorado seems like the Real Deal, unless you regularly require something heavier. (I own a CSAR-T. It's built like a tank. I rarely use it, mostly for the accessory tools.) My Ranger 110 is too long for me presently, and my 115 was - well, it's stll cool. Sometimes a fellow just needs a change. This new Buck is a worthy replacement for the 115 as a "go to first" knife.

Most descriptions of the Alpha Dorado invariable emphasize the word "little." Yet despite its length, the knife blade is substantial. And the handle (I chose the attractive Rosewood) is eloquently shaped and well-finished. And there's nothing "little" about the blade, wide and thick for it's length. Buck has achieved the improbable: putting a nice-sized folding-blade knife into a small package, easily accessible.

One-hand opening and closing requires minimal practice. It certainly isn't a "jackknife," as someone suggested; no mechanism is involved. Closing is what I'd call controlled: the user employs gravity. All but the most distracted or incautious user can have fingers, palm, and clothing well out of danger. But the point is sharp - attention is required as with all spear points.

And the blade is as sharp as you're likely to need for most things, especially after a few swipes with the DMT. The knife should be real versatile. For his first "application," this retired warrior first used his new Buck for opening a stopped-up saline spray bottle. Real pipe-hitting, eh?

The Alpha Dorado is a great knife. Small enough to carry every day, big enough to dress most game. The knife is very sharp, hold its edge and is extremely durable. When the blade is locked open it doesn't budge, feels as solid as a fixed blade. Buck also includes a well designed leather sheath.

Bought this pocket knife as a gift and was very pleased with quality and appearance. My husband doesn't want to give it away now! Very smooth to open with one hand. If anything, I think it's a bit heavy.

I recently purchased several Buck Alpha Dorado knives with the new Sandvik 13C26 Stainless Steel. Also have been using a 154CM Dorado for the past 6 months. My assessment is that the new Sandvik 13C26 steel is NOT a step down from 154CM. In fact I prefer the 13C26 because it sharpens to a razor edge and holds an edge very well. Have never been able to get the 154CM Dorado anywhere near as sharp.

Buck hardens 13C26 to 59-60Rc, similar to 154CM. The finish on the 13C26 is also glossy and superior to 154CM, which has a blemished, satin finish. Have no fear you are being slided by Buck on this new steel.

This is a great knife and I really was attracted to the style and overall shape of the knife. The fit and finish are very good and correct for this price point. Obviously, this knife is machine sharpened and is in fact very sharp out of the box, but showing fine grinding marks on the cutting edge. I have since refined the cutting edge to a mirror finish which I believe will hold the edge a bit longer. The only complaint that I had was with the scales (and this is purely a matter of opinion)... I didn't care for the shape or color of the scales so I made a set of my own out of some redwood burl and I changed the shape considerably... will enclose a photo if I can figure out how. The leather sheath is also unique and well suited to the knife, but here again for me I would have liked to see a clip attached to the belt loop so that you could slip it in your pocket sheath and all as you would a knife with a clip. I made this modification also as I don't always want to wear and or attach my knife to my belt. Very good knife and well worth the price.http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/B000EHYZLY/ref=cm_ciu_pdp_images_0?ie=UTF8&index=0&isremote=0
