Rated 5 out of 5 by GFondell Beautiful knife- LL Bean Logo NBD
This knife is beautiful. Buck quality is renowned and this is no exception. I write because of a few comments about the LL Bean logo on the knife. I ordered in spite of these comments and I'm glad I did. From what was written I half expected a neon sign. Instead, one ONE side of the knife, taking all of about an inch, is "LL Bean" printed in a faded black into the steel. So, don't be put by this; it is truly no big deal.

Buck PathFinder is an excellent around knife for deer, small game and fish. Easy to handle due to it's size, especially when de-boning deer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WVtootall Good knife but small handle
I read the other reviews before purchasing this knife. The knife is good looking overall, is well made and the blade came sharp. Also, I like the sheath. However, the L.L. Bean logo on the blade is noticeable. My only complaint, agreeing with some other people's comments, is that it would have been nice if the handle were a little longer. It just fits in my hands (I'm 6'7" so I don't have small hands). If this knife's handle was just an inch longer it would probably be well received by almost all (and then maybe if it didn't have the logo, if you care). My advice, if you have average size hands and don't care about the logo, buy this knife. If you have large hands and/or don't like the idea of the logo, think about it before purchasing.

Good looking, sharp knife and good sheath. I just with the handle was longer. The knife is more suited for someone with small hands or younger teenager.

Rated 4 out of 5 by IndianaHank Great All-Around Knife
Received this for Christmas in 2012 and it is a very well made, comfortable knife. The blade holds a nice, sharp edge and the knife itself is well balanced and comfortable in your hand. I would have given this knife 5 stars instead of 4 but for the very ugly LL Bean logo imprinted on the blade itself. The sheath that comes with the knife looks great and the LL Bean logo on the sheath was well designed and well placed. Putting a second logo on the blade itself was a bit overkill, in my humble opinion, and makes the knife look a little "less than" if that makes sense. Don't get me wrong, I would still recommend this knife to anyone who wants a good quality, all-around good camping knife. I just wish the marketing department didn't get their way on this one in connection with the branding of the blade.

Good handle, we'll balanced knife. Outstanding Buck quality with an even greater warranty from LL Bean. Comes sharp right out of the box, and an outstanding sheath. Will put it to work right away.

by MsKMB Great knife, ugly logo
I was excited to get this knife for my husband who's an avid hunter. After reading the recommendations and getting a friend to verify this would be a good knife for hunting, I decided to buy it. What the picture doesn't show is the ugly L.L. Bean logo on the side of the blade. The logo goes down the length of the blade and is large. The color is charcoal gray.
I understand the company wants to put its logo on everything, but why in the middle of the blade? Maybe on the handle or in smaller text at the intersection of the blade and the handle. If the knife was for me, I'd return it immediately. Once I give the knife to my husband, we'll see if he wants to return it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by IowaHawkeyes Ugly logo.
I was excited to get this for X-mas and think it's a beautiful knife. I like everything about it except the hideous L.L. Bean logo that ruins the blade. They don't put it in the photo for a reason, it's terrible and now I've got to figure out how to have it removed. It's frustrating because one of the things that I like about the L.L. Bean clothing line is the lack of ugly logos on most of their shirts.
That being said, the staked leather handle is really nice looking.

Buck makes the best knives and they have a lifetime warranty. The stacked leather handle is rare so this make a great collector item for me.
