Buck Knives 119 Special 0119BKS - 420HC Clip Point Blade - Black Phenolic Handle

The Buck 119 Special has been a classic pattern of the Buck Knives line for over 50 years. Hoyt and Al Buck used to build them by hand in their two-man shop. Today, this larger hunting knife with a large 6.0" clip blade is perfect for detail work, piercing and cutting in tight places for added control, and is as popular as ever. The black Phenolic handle sports a polished aluminum pommel and guard. Each Buck 119 Special includes a rugged black leather belt sheath.

More about 420HC steel:
This 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. Using their 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 their 420HC blades to a Rockwell hardness of Rc 58.

    The Buck 119's clip point blade makes it a good choice for putting down medium sized game, like feral hogs. "Phenolic" plastic is not a common handle material; it is a hard, rigid plastic much like the scales of Swiss army knives. It is very slick all over, but the finger grooves and end hook below the pinky give the handle a moderate amount of traction. The price of the 119 is very fair, less than comparable Kabars, SOGs, Beckers, and ESEEs. Hopefully this delightfully pointy and shiny knife stays in production forever!
