This knife, best I owned in my life. Period. It's large enough to do some serious damage and get reach, it's small enough to maneuver fast while dueling. The balance is perfect which further enhances it's speed when swinging or stabbing. The edge, well it holds up well and can cut paper and shave hairs off my arm from the factory. The shape is good for slashing and stabbing, this blade is thick and strong enough you could hit bone and it wouldn't stop.
My only nag is one related to Buck knives. Buck knives are so hard you can't sharpen them. They will work well for a few years of normal farm work like mine did, but once it got dull enough to be a hassle you can't sharpen it easily. I would recommend finding a tool sharpening shop somewhere to do so, worth the money with Buck knives.
End all conclusion: This is a fighting knive. It's too big and unwieldy for cutting on a deer, it's balanced perfectly for real combative use and that is it. It would also be the perfect survival knife, you would use it for a long time before it dulls and it can split logs if needed. Be aware that Buck doesn't make these blades no more, which is a shame because it is the top of the evolutionary chain for knives. Get yours while you can, and trust me you only need one to last years. I'm taking this with me wherever I go after AIT training.
Also, made in the USA was a selling point. Everything else may be made in China (which means everything else is made to be disposable rather than durable), but I refuse to buy a chinese-made knife.
If you're looking for a good knife, look no further.
What I like about this knife: for a 6.25" blade this blade has a nice, balanced-heft to it. The blade is made out of 420HC Stainless, treated in liquid nitrogen which makes it super-strong. I tested it splitting 3-inch logs and hacked a 6" piece of baseball-bat-SOLID ash into two pieces. It took a over a half-hour to work through the wood, but the knife made every stroke count. Even off strokes that got some edge sent chips flying.
Some say this knife is a fighting knife, and some say for its size, it's a good chopper. I agree with both of those assessments. I like the lines--the long drop-point that looks almost dagger-like, the molded handle with soft-grippy insert and thumb-ramp, not to mention 1/4" thick full tang.
A well-respected YouTube reviewer said he was going to review it in the first moments of his knife clinic, but I never saw him pick up the knife. Maybe he dropped it in the snow?
