Buck Cherrywood Series 105 Pathfinder Fixed Blade Knife
THE BEST KNIFE I'VE EVER OWNED!!!
I've tried a lot of different knives over the years and was never satisfied until now. This knife has the perfect balance. For field dressing deer the blade length is perfect for the pelvic and the blade with is also not too wide for this.
Knife is a true work of art, almost too nice to drag through the woods though you bet I am. Very sharp and high quality blade edge and high quality sheath are just a couple more pros. You won't be disappointed with this knife, and my first deer I field dressed wtih this knife was a good one.

Continuing a Tradition
Fifty years ago my Dad purchased a Buck Pathfinder. Though he used it often it was still in mint condition when he died nine years ago. It became mine and is still as good as new. My youngest son lost his knife field dressing a deer last fall. I decided he too needed a Pathfinder but was concerned we'd get our knives mixed up if I got him one with a black handle like mine. I must say I was a bit envious when his cherry wood beauty arrived in the mail.

Best knife I've ever owned
I needed a new knife specifically for deer hunting. After much research, the consensus seemed to be that the Buck 105 was the way to go. Since I was planning on keeping this knife as long as possible, I decided that I wanted something that looked as good as it worked. This knife did not disappoint. The cherry and the brass are beautiful. It's built very well. Solid and ready for year after year of use. The knife is extremely sharp. It's the only knife I use during deer season. You can dress it, skin it, and butcher it using just this knife, and that's exactly what I've done the past two seasons. My butchering kit has sat in the closet. It's rare that you come across something that looks as good as it functions, and this knife is definitely it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone and everyone.

Beauty by Buck
A true masterpiece of beauty and function. The cherrywood and brass handle is a bit heavier than the classic "phenolic" so it feels a bit more heavy in the handle than the blade. This gives it a more solid feel in the grip. The sheath shows off the beauty of the handle, but I think the sheath of years ago provided a bit more protection. The blade is an ideal size for camping chores, and is quite sharp out of the box. Another home-run for the Buck company, and it's made in the USA!
