    It seems that just about every other knife manufacturer has its own thread and I thought buck is deserving as well. They might not offer as wide of a variety as others but they do get there designs right. The heat treat they achieve is a discussion of its own.[​IMG][​IMG]

    My buck...it's the sharpest knife I own. Wish it had a pocket clip, though

    I've always wondered - what's with the Buck Striders? Are they any good?

    I carry a Vantage Pro daily and I'm ape f*#king crazy about it. Excellent geometry, super sharp, flips like a champ and is good looking to boot.

    Pretty much the whole Vantage line is really nice. Some of my favorite knives. The paperstone one is crap, though. But other than that one...

    Best bang for the buck (no pun intended) if you ask me. S30V and G10 for $50? Who beats that?

    They seem to have discontinued the popular Strider and Mayo collaborations, I don't know why. And they really ought to come out with a 110 variant that's lighter, with a thumb stud and a pocket clip. I think of Buck like Maglite, with a long history of being a solid American brand, who just hasn't kept up with the times.

    I hated the 425 stainless IIRC they used to use, so hard to sharpen.

    Buck Strider came in yesterday. I am going to EDC my Bucks this week. I just wish that Alpha Dorado had a pocket clip.

    I've got a 110 with a bolt on thumb stud, transforms the use of the knife for me.
    Still a bit heavy and bulky for regular EDC, but it's one of those knives that, in my opinion, a man has to own at some point.
