We redefined knife performance with blades crafted of S30V steel by the knife experts at Buck. Developed by Crucible Steel for the cutlery industry and known as the pinnacle of knife-making metals, S30V is composed of metallic powders fused together under intense pressure, heat-tempered, then cooled in a cryogenic freezer. The resulting metal delivers the absolute finest combination of edge retention (45% greater than 420HC), flexibility and hardness (59-61 Rockwell) while remaining easy to sharpen with conventional stones. Its diamond-like carbon coating and high chromium content provide oxidation resistance. Field-testing and independent Cutlery Allied Trade Research Association (C.A.T.R.A.) tests prove these knives will outperform those crafted with other blade metals. Ergonomic rosewood handle. Leather sheath. Made in USA. Blade length: 3-1/8". Overall length: 7-1/4". Weight: 5.2 oz.
