Buck Hartsook

The Hartsook is a very slim and light fixed-blade knife designed to be used in a necklace or similar.

It is made of S30V premium stainless steel coated by black oxide. The overall length is 4 1/4'' (10.8 cm) and the blade is 1 7/8'' (4.8 cm). The total weight (without sheath) is .5 oz (15gr).

The blade is nicely shaped with thumb grip ridges in the opposite edge in two places. This ridges can be using for scraping and other jobs where the plain edge could be damaged. The shape of the handle is nice to hold and the grip is quite strong, the one piece construction makes the knife very reliable and safe to use.

The neck sheath holds the knife well and is secure enough to wear around your neck without serious danger but as with any sharp object around you being careful is recommended. Being very light and strong the Hartsook is an affordable choice for a fixed neck-carry blade that can be used in a very huge number of activities such as camping, fishing and general cutting jobs.

You can read more about it in Buck's website or order for $23 from KnifeCenter.
