A traditional, convenient and multi-purpose folder from Buck Knives. Slightly smaller than the Stockman the Buck Cadet also has the same three convenient blades: Clip, Sheepsfoot and Spey.Read more
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.
The sheepsÂfoot blade is handy for cutting and slicing. The cutting edge is straight, leading to a point which curves back to an unsharpened top.
With the curved end of the blade being closer to perpendicular to the blade's axis than other knives and lacking a point, making penetration unlikely, spey blades are common for skinning fur-bearing animals.
