I bought one of these, and have to say it is very hefty. It's handle heavy, and feels a bit like a roll of quarters in the hand (in weight especially...this will drag loose pants down). The blade is super smooth when flipping out. A little light weight oil makes it even smoother. The liner lock snapes into place perfectly in the middle of the blade, and is quite stable. Buck did make a recent change from 54CM to 12C27M steel, although it still has the Bos heat treatment (and logo). 12C27M is a Swedish steel that is about on par with 440A, but the Bos treatment is supposed to improve its hardness. The factory edge on mine dulled a bit, but it was tested on a lot of cardboard, whittling wood, and cutting things (knife-based activities). By "dulling" I mean that it wouldn't shave the hair off my arm after a few days of these activities, but would still cut through a tomato without issue. With a little touchup sharpening, the edge is back, and the knife is scary sharp. The wood on the handle is extremely smooth and well shaped. The pictures do not convey how serious this knife is: how much a work of art it is combined with its feel of extreme durability. This thing makes their venerable 110 model look like a toy. The sheath (a very nice burgundy brown leather piece) that came with mine was cut out of the box. I contacted Buck, and they responded within 24 hours. They sent me a replacement sheath at no cost (very nice people to talk to). Overall this is a must buy for someone looking for a durable, useful knife.

I received the knife and included case in just a few days after the order. Hasn't left my side since. I found it very easy to open and close, and despite some of the negative reviews I had read, I found I got more than my moneys worth. The blade is stable, the knife has a decent weight to it and fits comfortably in my somewhat largish hand. Overall, I am extremely pleased!

A knife is a tool which I hope provides long life and service, so we can't know if it will for years but this knife appears to be very well designed and constructed.
The knife itself is medium sized, thick stainless plates and heavy in the hand. It is well finished and functions smoothly from being well machined with close tolerances. It is tight, nicely so. The nub on the blade is thick and easy to place your thumb on to open the blade. It opens firmly but smooth and surely opens each time with no catching. The blade is fairly wide, thick and well polished. It seems to be a very fine blade, cuts sharply and has held its keen for some time. This would be a fine grade of steel.
The rosewood handle is very pretty, very nice pieces of fine grained wood beautifully finished and well varnished.

If this knife lasts it will have been a very good choice. It is beautiful, well finished, well made, strongly designed and of fine materials.

I bought it for my son. I would like one myself actually. Its really nice. :-J

I am an avid hunter and carry a lot of steel in the field, at least 4 knives at a time. I have always preferred the European steel but the knife (277) I bought from Buck is quite literally a masterpiece. I would not hesitate to dress a deer with this knife. I have the rosewood grips but there is plenty of purchase due to the deep serrations on top of the knife. There is another nifty feature, the lanyard hole has a wrench side; yes, you can turn a nut. I would rate this knife at a 9.5 only because it's a bit heavy. If you want a knife that will be around 100 years from now, then Bucks 277 is the knife for you.

This knife exceeds my expectations in almost every way. It's gorgeous; the rosewood handle make it so attractive it could easily be bought simply as a showpiece. Then when you pick it up and feel its presence, the way it nestles into the palm of your hand and the sheer weight of it, you know you're holding something truly special. The handle is molded to perfectly fit the contours of your hand. Length closed: 4 7/8 inches. The blade deploys quickly and decisively with one hand; a slight push of the thumb peg and a flick of the wrist and it snaps securely into place. Blade length from top of handle to tip of blade: 3 3/8 inches. Overall length when open: 8 1/4 inches. When open there is no play in the blade at all; it is firmly rooted to the handle. The liner lock makes it a more attractive knife in my opinion but isn't nearly as convenient as a lockback and might even be a trifle dangerous if you attempt to close the knife with one hand but that really isn't necessary in any circumstance I can think of. The blade is clearly marked as being 12C27M steel. It is very sharp out of the box but, as to be expected, the edge isn't honed completely yet. The machine markings can clearly be seen on the edge of the blade. This edge will no doubt dull quickly if left to its own devices but I'm looking forward to putting a good, lasting edge on it myself, followed by a drop or two of gun oil to help protect the blade and make the action even smoother.

I'm not as happy with the sheath. It is a very solid and well-constructed piece of leather, beyond doubt. I just don't like the design of it. For one thing I wish it was deeper. When closed there is a 1 3/4 inch open space between the top of the pocket and the flap at the top of the knife. I don't think that much of the knife needs to be exposed.
