Tom Claycomb reviews the Buck Selkirk Knife and thinks this solid well built blade is a better skinning knife than a survival knife.
Buck Selkirk Knife SPECS:
- Blade length is listed as 4-inches.
- Wt.-6.4 oz.
- Blade thickness is .125”
- Steel-The knife is made out of 420 HC which has the wear resistance of high carbon alloys and has the
corrosion resistance of chromium stainless steels.
- Has a Rockwell hardness of Rc 58
- Sheath-the knife seems to snap firmly into the sheath, so I don’t perceive there being any worries with
it falling out while hiking or encountering small tumbles.
- Blade Style-It has a drop point design.
