Hunting remains a core tradition for Buck. The Frontiersman is a classic knife that performs without complaint today. The beautiful Black Micarta handle makes this a sleek addition to your hunting pack.
- Micarta Grips - Micarta is known for its strength and durability and is nearly impervious to weather, oils, and solvents, making it slip resistant in wet conditions.
- Paul Bos Heat Treat - We are known for our blades. Buck Knives is a market leader in edge retention thanks to our steel selections and heat treat process pioneered by industry famous, Paul Bos, whose heat treating system has proven to be the best in the business. Each blade is put through a rigorous heat treat process and quality performance test. It is then tempered to the appropriate Rockwell Hardness through a heating, freezing, and reheating system. This gives you longer edge life, ease of re sharpening, and a blade that will not fail you.
- 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. 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 re sharpen. For best performance we harden to a Rockwell hardness of Rc 58.
