Warning: If you let someone use either the Buck 326 or the 525, make sure you get it back. These knives have invisible legs, which is not noted in the description.
I love the mirror finish of the handle and blade. It has a rough area near the blade on the handle around the joint, but aside from that everything on this knife is a smooth mirror finish. The back side of the handle (opposite where the blade goes into the handle) has a black plastic spacer between the metal halves of the handle.
There is no keychain or lanyard hole, and the black plastic spacer means that you can't put a string around one of the screws either.
Overall a very nice looking smaller pocketknife.
- Sharp out of the box, holds edge moderately well, not especially difficult to resharpen
- Versatile tool. Works great for any small-blade task, like peeling things, slicing apples, opening packages, sharpening pencils, even cutting paper if you have a hard surface you don't care about scarring up.
- All-stainless construction makes it durable, I've put it through the washing machine a couple of times and it didn't even notice, except that the one plastic component (spacer on the back of the handle) faded slightly.
- Doesn't feel at all cheap.
- Easily concealed (not that I'm advocating doing that). Small enough that it won't even make a bulge in your pocket.
- One-hand open, one-hand close (although closing it is a little bit of a trick). Latches open securely.
- Nice form factor; well-proportioned with good-looking curves.
- Not very comfortable for extended use.
- No way to hang it on a lanyard or keychain.
- Made in China.
I received this knife as a gift from a friend who heavily engraved it. I honestly would never have even looked at this knife otherwise. That being said I'm very surprised as to it's quality. I'll do a quick pro/con list here.
1) Frame locks up very tight. A lot of inexpensive frame locks can be sloppy and even dangerous. This one locks up surprisingly tight yet remains easy to open.
2) Nice design. Not too flashy, but also doesn't scream THE TACTICAL when you take it out in public. This is one of the reasons I love my Sebenza. Slicing an apple for my kid doesn't get people worked up when your knife isn't some all black monstrosity. This knife won't get people excited either.
3) All stainless. I have a couple carbon steel knives for things like camping and they're great, but stainless is great for every day carry. No need to worry about perspiration or whatever corroding your knife.
1) Tip down carry. The clip on this knife is set for tip down carry in your pocket. Some people prefer this, I don't. It means you have to flip your knife around to use it when you take it out. The clip isn't reversible either. This goes for lefties as well, you can't swap sides.
2) 440A Steel. For this price you're not going to get much better, but there are a lot better steels out there.
3) Behind the scenes finish. The exterior of this knife looks nice, but there are a lot of machining marks and such in places like under the clip between the frame lock parts and such. Again, at this price, not a huge deal but it's there.
All in all it's a great knife for the money and if you lose it you're not out a lot.
Pros: Great cutter. It has a relatively thin blade with a very high aggressive hollow grind and mirror polish, which makes cutting anything a breeze. Also the edge is pretty straight giving a more control over precise cuts. Easy to flick open and closed once you get the hang of it. Stippling on the front part gives you enough friction to grip the knife for small cutting tasks. This is not a hard use knife (under 2 inches), but will breeze through small tasks, especially letter opening. Very easy to sharpen; with a 600 grit stone, it takes a razor edge, since the edge is so thin. This knife is tiny, closed, you can literally hide it in a fist, or even 2 fingers.
Cons: Full on pocket knife, no lanyard hole or clip. Nylon washers, so not the smoothest opening, but you can flick it out with a bit of practice. The whole thing is very thin, so be careful when you shut it closed, you might take a bit of skin since it is quite sharp. But if you do cut yourself it probably wont hurt. Thumbstud is thicker than the handle, so it does protrude. It will feel uncomfortable if sat on, so I leave it in my jacket pocket. Havent lost it yet. Mirror polish on blade and handle gets scratched a lot, but i think it adds to the knife.
Lastly, my back spacer was dark brown. Which I very much enjoyed. No idea what the difference between this and the buck colleague except the colleague doesnt have stippling or a backspacer and is half the price. Been searching for a replacement but it's not going well for knives under 2 inches.
