This almost-cute pocket knife most closely resembles a standard size Buck 110 "folding hunter" that went through the wash by accident and came out slightly shrunk.

As a "nostalgia" product it can't be beat, and providing this to a suitably mature kid would be a great gift. Scouts might like it too, since most Scout knives have extra tools on them (that you don't need) but a poor blade (this one has a great blade) with a slip joint (that can close on fingers accidentally) and weigh too much to boot (this one is refreshingly light for an old-fashioned lockback with steel liners and brass bolster ends).

It arrived "paper cutting" and "hair shaving" sharp; I have the proverbial barren patch of skin on the back of my forearm to prove it. Although the blade has a little wobble side to side, the rest of the knife is well-crafted, and it is made in America.

This is a visual twin to the original, full-sized Buck Folding Hunter Model 110, which revolutionized the pocket knife world with its "lock-back." Most pocket knives before then were "slip joints" held open not by a lock, but merely by spring tension (like most Swiss Army knives) and could close accidentally on the fingers during use. The Buck Folding Hunter was a lot safer with its locking back. Also, the Folding Hunter was the first widely sold pocket knife that had a blade long enough to replace the sheath knifes that hunters used to use.

The Model 55 is smaller than the original Buck 100 but well-suited for small chores whether in the office (opening mail, packages) or in the field (whatever you would use a paring knife for in camp).

Never having actually worn one of these knives out over the last fifty years, I recently had to replace my second Buck pocket knife that I had owned for over 30 years. Left laying on the ground during a camping trip, I was dismayed when I discovered the absense of my knife upon returning home. It in turn, had replaced my first Buck knife purchased when I was thirteen years old.

There is something reassurring about purchasing an item that is the same quality as the first one I bought as a teenager all those years ago. The quality of the steel in the blade, the brass caps, and wood inlay are still the same.

A fine knife and a company dedicated to carrying on a tradition of excellent workmanship for generations gives a person a sense of satisfaction that not everything is made as a throwaway item. This will be my last Buck knife for myself. However, I have grandsons who will receive this gift of a quality product when they are ready for their first knife.

This knife lives up to Buck's quality standard and is a great knife to throw in your pocket as it is small, sharp, and durable.

I agree with everything the other reviewer said. It's a Buck 110 shrunk down to pocket knife size. If you like Buck, (I definately do.) then you will love this little knife.

Like the first reviewer said this is a great little knife. I carry it with me every day and never notice it's there until I need it, but at the same time it's big enough to get the job done for every day stuff.

The Buck 55 is an outstanding knife. I prefer my knives a little sharper than the factory edge, but it sharpens without too much trouble and holds an edge quite well. It is a great length, width, and weight, and its design is smooth enough that I never worry about it catching or snagging on anything in my pocket, unlike some knives with multiple attachments, key rings, or opening assists. I have owned and used Gerbers, Swiss Army Knives, CRKTs, and generic knives. The Buck 55 is not the primary knife I use for camping, hiking, hunting, or fishing, but in my opinion, it simply can't be beat as a fantastic everyday, general-use pocket knife.

The Buck 55 is a classic. When you think of a traditional folding pocket knife this is almost always the knife that comes to mind. It is made in the USA and the quality shows now as it always has. I have owned many different knives, but this is a knife that I am proud to keep in my pocket for its style and reliability. I highly recommend this knife for you or give it as a gift.

I ordered this knife using amazon super saver free delivery on the 9th and tracking showed it would be delivered between 14th-19th and I was very surprised to have received it on the 11th. The knife arrived in great condition with no blemishes and straight blade when closed (no problem with the rivets) and the cutting edge is sharp. The blade is stamped with the year 2012 symbol and the box label shows the manufactured date being 10-09-12. I was hoping to get a year 2013 knife but with Bucks website showing this knife as "Currently Not Available" I wasn't going to hold my breath. I think that sellers should show/tell the year of the Buck knife you are buying because the photos they show of the knife is misleading and it may be new old stock.

One thing that is kinda strange is that you can buy a new Buck 110 for $29.99 total with free shipping and it comes with a leather sheath and the model 55 is half the size and has no pouch/sheath and it cost more money. Buck did/does supply a leather pouch for their Limited Edition 55's but you cannot buy this pouch separately and Buck told me via email that they have non in stock.

Overall this was a great transaction and I'm satisfied. (thanks Amazon)
