Rated 5 out of 5áby Bair Buck Pathfinder
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.

áby 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 5áby 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.

Rated 1 out of 5áby TheAvidBirder Broken Blade
After one year of camping, hunting, and general outdoor use, the blade broke off the handle. I was shocked. I expected better quality from both LL Bean and Buck.

Rated 5 out of 5áby forrest4thetrees LL Bean - Service beyond Imagination
the plan: knife to be used for hiking trips for all purpose duty.
the reality: this knife is such a joy to handle, takes and holds an edge that can be used to shave with, excellent weight and balance, and a perfect example of Buck craftsmanship that i keep it with me at all times.

A great knife, with good leather sheath; can't wait to cut sticks for dogs and marshmellows - not to mention all the other "round camp" duties

Just what I expected from LLBean. Great classic knife from a pairing of businesses I grew up trusting.
