    Does anybody have trouble sharpening Buck knives?

  • #2
    Nope, I use two steels in different grits. They don't hold their edge as well as some other knives but I like them for field dressing.

      I like Buck Knives but they don't hold an edge, like my PUMA PAL I can Gut and Skin Two deer with my PUMA and only do 1/2 a deer with my Buck, it all come down to what steel the blade is made of. Ya just cant beat German Steel.
      Ps: Got the Buck as a Gift.

        I find Buck knives just too persnickety to deal with. I went back to Case and plain old carbon steel blades. Easily sharpened and holds an edge.

          Contact Buck about their sharpening service. They have a double concave sharpening process that is suppose to be better than the basic hollow ground edge.

            I have a guy I work with who does wonders with my buck knife. Of course he sharpens wood planes to the point you can shave with them, so he's a little out there. All I know is it is so sharp by the time he's done with it, it makes field dressing a piece of cake. Even gets through the sternum without much fuss.

              yes and no. I have an older buck that holds an edge well and very sharp. I have a newer one and it takes forever to get sharp and loses its edge quickly. For that reason I quit buying them and use gerber.

                    Never a problem sharpening my Buck knives. I typically use crock sticks, and find that my knives are good for multiple guttings.

                      My brother says that he has had some trouble shapening his buck 110, but I can get my one 119 razor sharp without very much effort.

                        I have several buck knifies and find that the best way to sharpen them is on natural stone with a medium grit and then go over it with a very fine diamond stone.

                          My Buck will cut a bolt just like the logo shows, but forget about anything else.
