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).Read more ›
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)
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.
I already have the Buck 110, and have used it in skinning deer, and I couldn't be happier. Superb quality and extremely sharp, but too big for a pocket, and I don't always want to wear the sheath. I was also looking for another pocket knife, but have been somewhat displeased with the stockmans I have, wanting and needing a locking pocket knife for safety. Like it's big brother, the 55 is superb workmanship, and incredibly sharp. It's very lightweight, but also striking in simplicity and beauty.
I find myself not wanting to have this in my pocket everyday, but on occasion, so as not to age it too quickly, but then again, at only around $30, it's easily replaced. I can't say this any more positively than this: If you need a single blade, locking pocket knife, sharp enough to skin deer or whatever, buy this knife! You will love it!
