The visual design, with the wood handles and brass guard, is strongly reminiscent of the classic Buck 110 folding hunter. The blade has a very good profile and is well ground and carries a good edge. My only visual complaint is that the lanyard hole is an unreinforced hole drilled through both handle slabs. The knife would have better visual balance (particularly with the large brass guard) if they re-positioned the handle pins and used a brass liner for the lanyard hole. The handle is a bit small - it could use another 1/4" of length, but that is a minor gripe.
The sheath is good - it is a simple leather pouch style produced in Mexico.
Overall I really like this knife. It meshes well into the classic line of Buck knives. I think they have a winner here!
Comes razor sharp out of the box with a very fine edge in a high satin finish. Very clean finish job and not that milky scratched up finish on their lower end knives. To tell you the truth I love this blade so much for it's balance of straight edge and curvature it's been more of an EDC to me than a hunting knife. Not that it lacks at cleaning squirrel,rabbit,or skinning deer by any means. It just feels so good to work with either cutting wisteria vines or carving wood. I know fixed blades aren't for everyone but you've a few bonuses here...Read more ›
A few days after these knives arrived I was able to try them out.
I tested these 2 knives on a 300 pound pig. I used the 113 for gutting and making the initial cuts into the hide to start skinning. Both knives were hair shaving sharp right out of the box, I used the 103 to skin the entire pig without needing to hone or sharpen it. I was very impressed. I had to make a few passes on the honing steel with the 113 because I was doing most of the harder work with it. After a few passes on the steel it was sharp again.
After skinning the entire pig with no problems I washed them off and checked to see how sharp they stayed. If anyone has ever skinned a pig you know how hard they are on knives. They made it through the entire job no problem but needed to be touched up before the next use.
I went out to the garage and made a few passes on my wet stone with the 113 then made a few passes with the honing steel. With very little effort it was razor sharp again. The 103 took me a little work, I'm not an expert knife sharpener but I had a little trouble to get the 103 back to where it was right out of the box. I'm not sure if I was using the wrong angle or what but it took some work. In the end the 103 was just as sharp out of the box.
I was very happy with this combo that is why I reviewed them both together. In case someone is looking for a nice hunting set up, I am glad I chose these 2 knives. I look forward to years of use out of them.
The only negative thing I would say about either is the 103 was a little hard to sharpen but like I mentioned it could have been me not to knife. All in all they are both 5 star knives that i wouldn't hesitate to recommend to someone or buy them again.

As of now I haven't cut anything with it but a piece of string but I'm sure I will give it a better test this fall. I've got three Buck knives besides this one. Read morePublished 6 days ago by MHB48
Very well made production knife. I would expect a perfect fit in a handmade piece but I plan on dressing feral hogs with it, so near perfect is good enough. Read morePublished 9 days ago by BrownsIndiansFan
