BU0120BKS: 120 General

Buck Knives

The long blade enhances the exquisite appearance, while creating a hunting knife that makes de-boning a lot simpler. Exclusive, elite, and luxurious, the General remains an exceptional choice for a hunting knife or simply as a collectible. Either way, it is a conversation starter.


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. Add our 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 we harden to a Rockwell hardness of Rc 58.


The crescent tip 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.

Field knife
Have used these since 1971, took some getting used to sharpening, the steel is much harder than the carbon steel. Holds a good edge. The black phenolic grip is near indestructible. The blade will baton thru hardwood altho Buck no longer advertises driving the "blade thru the steel bolt" as they used to. I did nick the edge on mine- while hacking thru deer bones- but it sharpened out. I suspect it nicked because of the hard steel and thin edge, and hardness of bone.The steel- not a fancy super steel, but a solid choice with GOOD TEMPERING. It will take an edge!There are other knives out there and I own a few. One particular brand I favor but their knives are NOT made in USA, and NOT in stainless, like Buck knives are. If you want a good solid knife with some years of history, and used in many situations and environments and MADE in USA, Buck is a good candidate I would recommend. Have bet my butt on the Buck 120 and 110 folder and my butt is still there! Barring losing them, mine will go to my heirs someday and will last them their lifetimes too...

Quality knife
Bought my buck general in ‘72 while serving in the navy off the coast of Vietnam. It’s served me well in all that time, held an edge and is generally one of the best knives I’ve owned. The scabbard and knife both are still in great shape, 47 years later.

Buck General
This newly made General is interesting to me because I own a few similar Buck fixed blade knives from the 1970s. I remember seeing this large General in stores back then. This one I just received is exactly like my old Buck fixed blade knives in terms of design, handle, and all minor details. It's like if I had bought it with the others way back then. That said, it is a robust blade with a handle that fits the hand perfectly. It is balanced, cuts cleanly and is well made and finished. Buck should be proud of its heritage and continued quality.
