Before designing his own range of knives, the Buck Special 119 was the survival knife of choice for survivalist and presenter of Survivorman, Les Stroud.
The anniversary edition of the famous 119 special celebrates 75 years of life for the robust knife. The anniversary edition 119 Special features a custom medallion in the handle and a 75th-anniversary blade stamp. The leather sheath also features an embossed anniversary logo
420HC is Buck’s standard blade material because it approaches the wear resistance of high carbon alloys while delivering the corrosion resistance of chromium stainless steels. Add Buck’s exclusive heat-treat process and you have a very user-friendly combination of superior corrosion resistance with excellent strength for wear resistance and durability. You also have a blade that is easy to resharpen. For best performance Buck hardens to a Rockwell hardness of 58-60HRC.
The crescent tip of a clip point blade makes the blade thinner with a sharper point. This shape provides good control for detail work and cutting in tight places. It is also well suited for intentional punctures like new holes in your belt, etc. While the point of the blade is effective for detail work, it’s not as strong as the thicker points on drop points and skinners.
