Rated 5 out of 5 by Reese104 Great knife
I purchased this because I was looking for a good folding knife with bone scales and a sheath that would go on my belt. I especially wanted one with a good, sharp blade that would hold an edge yet be easy to sharpen. Additionally, I like the weight and grip of this Buck knife. Fits easily in the hand and has substance as well as being well balanced. And by the way, the price was well worth it. As one who makes knives and sheaths I appreciate quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rickt What a beautiful pocket knife
This is a beautifully machined knife, made with exceptionally high quality materials. If there is a down side, it's so nice I almost hate to use it. Definitely a Buck masterpiece.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Collectorofknives Knife great but sheath poor
I love this knife but hate the sheath. This sheath came unsnapped and the knife fell out a number of times. I thought that I lost my knife. Once a neighbor found it on his front lawn. I have had to search for this lost knife 3 times now. This troublesome sheath is now history. I have bought a full leather sheath which protects and secures my knife. I would reccomend this knife to anyone but get a new sheath or you may loose your prize possession!

Bought this as a gift for my brother-in-law. It came right after I mailed the Christmas gifts, so it was going to have to go out in a 2nd package...... I liked it so much that I kept it.
Great looking, practical.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pharmacyguy was hesitant but....
Okay I must admit that I was hesitant to buy this knife, primarily because of the cost! But, this knife is worth every penny!! It is the perfect "crossover" knife to me. It will perform the tasks that one uses a pocket knife for such as box opening, cutting string etc, but also has the heft and blade design that this will work great in the field as well!! I haven't skinned any prey in many many years but this knife would definitely do the job. I especially love the handle, it is a very comfortable size and seems like you could keep a good grip on it even with wet hands. The weight is nice too. I really liked the leather carrier, it seems like it will take lot's of wear and tear. I will wear this everyday at work for the more pocket knife uses. I also noticed on the box that Buck gives a lifetime warranty, combine that with Bean's policy, one could never go wrong. I am glad I finally got this knife and look forward to showing it off.

This knife turned out to be better than I had hoped. It is very well made, easy to sharpen and holds an edge very well. The Elk handle is very classy and feels great in the hand. I suspect it will last for a long time. Great product and always a pleasure to to buy from L.L. Bean.

Rated 4 out of 5 Great Gift
I received this for my birthday and it's great. None of the issues others reported. Folds small enough to wear on my belt anywhere, for example don't have to take it off in town as it looks like a leather cell phone case. Yet feels very sturdy and surprisingly heavy when open in the hand. Lost one star only for small space that was difficult to clean after skinning.

Received the knife, opened it and discovered that one of the 4 screws that hold the grips on to the knife was missing. Consequently the grip on one side was falling off. Not sure how this could leave the Buck factory in this condition. LLBean immediately exchanged it for another one, which will be delivered presently.
