Rated 5 out of 5 by YakDriver62 Great knife for money
I do little hunting any more, but carry my Vanguard when camping. It's been used for everything from cutting string to making fire boards for bow drill. It's holds a great edge and is reasonably easy to resharpen in the field.
I really dislike the sheath, but only from an aesthetic perspective. Much prefer my own leatherwork.
I have the rubber handle and find it comfortable and easy to use under all circumstances. I am, however getting the wood handle - just for the looks.

This knife is of Buck quality as you have come to know. If you have never owned a Buck before; this knife is of the highest quality at an affordable price.
The blade is strong and razor sharp. The rubberized handle gives it a nice comfortable feel and it is non slip.
The knife holds well in the sheath.
My only complaint is the sheath because it is nylon and not leather. Understand it is still a good sheath just not a leather one.

Another good quality knife from buck. I got this knife awhile back. Have cleaned and skinned a few deer with it and used it as a general purpose knife as well. It has only required re-sharpening once. The rubber grip does not slip...even with wet hands! I don't think you can go wrong if you by the Vanguard from Buck.
