OWNER REVIEW - Buck Kinives 110 Folding Hunter
- Here is my first owner review.
cm (5 ft, 10 in)
kg (165 lb)
City, State, Country:Flagstaff, AZ, USA
Date:February 28, 2010
I have been
camping since I was too small to remember. My first real backpacking experience was a 50-mile trip in
northern Washington when I was 12. I have been absolutely hooked since then. Most of my experience (backpacking, mountain biking, rafting,
canoeing etc…) has been in the Boy Scouts of America where I earned the rank of
eagle. I consider myself a light
packer, but enjoy bringing an occasional indulgence on the trail. I enjoy year round camping and go
anywhere from 3,000 ft to 12,000 ft elevation. I have been all over the north and southwest and look
forward to continue to explore and learn more about the outdoors!

The Buck Knives
110 folding hunter is a locking folder designed for everyday use. It has only one color or
configuration. Not a flashy knife. It is very conservative in its design,
but still looks very nice. The
knife is heavy for its size, but this makes it feel very secure. The blade is made of 420HC stainless
steel and very sharp. The locking
mechanism is easy to use and very secure. Overall this is a very simple knife with not a lot of moving pieces.
good-looking knife! I was given
the knife when I was 12 so really anything was going to look good to me. The knife was surprisingly heavy for
its size. I like that though. It felt more heavy duty, like it was
not going to break easily. The
knife came with a black leather sheath. This was a nice touch and has been very convenient.
For the past 10
years I have used this knife countless times and taken on numerous backpacking
and camping trips. Some that I
remember are two weeklong scout camps, week long backpacking trip through the
Pasayten Wilderness, a number of fishing trips, and every day life. The most impressive thing about the
folding hunter is its longevity. The knife is in just as good of condition as when I bought it, with very
minimal care. On the rare occasion that I have
sharpened it, it regains a sharp edge very quickly.
When I go
backpacking, the folding hunter is always on my side in its sheath. While being a heavy knife, I have found
that I don’t even notice it’s there until I need to use it. I have used this knife to carve walking
sticks, clean fish, cut rope, cut leather, and even cut paper. It has done just about everything I
could imagine I would use a knife for and always performed flawlessly.
Things I like:
Things I don’t like
There really is
not anything that has not impressed me about this knife. The 110 folding hunter is going to take
anything you can throw at it with no problems. It is an extremely simple design with fewer moving parts so
less that can go wrong. It is a
little pricey at $66, but if you are looking for a high quality knife that you
can one day pass down to your kid, then the Buck 110 folding hunter is the
knife for you.

Thanks for your Owner's Review. It has been added to the Owner Review Queue and will be picked up by an Edit Moderator soon. If you are new to BackpackGearTest.org, welcome to the community!

To assist in this process, if this is your first Owner Review we ask that you post only ONE Owner Review for edit at a time. Our experience is that it is more efficient for both the Editors and

If you'd like more assistance or guidance with the process you can request a mentor by sending an email to Jenn K., the mentor coordinator, at mentor (at) backpackgeartest.org.
You may receive edits or comments from other members of the group. These edits and comments, while not official, should be considered carefully, and if you find them substantial, revise and re-post your review. Incorporating member edits and re-submitting to the list
will usually result in a better review, as well as making things easier for the official Editor. Please put REVISED in the subject line of your re-submitted review if you take this route or make any
changes to your review BEFORE the review has been taken by an Edit Moderator.
