This is the best Buck I ever owned I own a few other Bucks like inertia and Momentum but this is the best one yet. It feels great in your hand and the quick action is great.
Worth the wait

I waited several months for this knife to come back in stock at Blade HQ, and it was worth it. The design, quality, and size are all appealing; the blade is also very sharp out of the box and it's made of excellent, high-quality steel.

Some may compare this to the Kershaw Launch 1 because it's at a somewhat similar price point. Because I own both I'll make a few observations. First of all they're both great knives. The Buck is a little easier to grip securely because of the textured material on the sides of the handle, and the Buck has a safety, which could be a plus for some carry situations.

On the other hand, the Kershaw slides more easily in and out of your pocket when using the clip because of the smooth, non-textured aluminum handle. When I carry the Buck I often put it in my pocket rather than using the clip, because it's not that easy to extract from your pocket when you use the clip. The Kershaw has a recessed firing button, so the lack of a safety has never given me any trouble, but I wouldn't recommend carrying it in a pocket without using the clip because of the greater chance that the firing button could be triggered.

The Kershaw does fire harder, but I don't really see that being much of an issue either way - they're both ready to go in a fraction of a second.

The Buck seems to be built a little more robustly, as it uses metal in the button and release mechanism; on the Kershaw some of those parts appear to be plastic.

Congratulations to Buck on the Impact - a solid, quality-built, American-made automatic.

I am a Gunsmith and have carried a buck Automatic for at least 14 or 15 years. This knife is another finger on my hand. When they were first made they were single action, they were a good knife and still the best knife I have carried in the last 71 years. When the double action came out a couple of years later,they became a sixth finger. I make knives and have carried my own, but when this buck came out, I don't know what I would do with out it.
I LOVE this knife!

For many years, people have been converting Buck 110 to an automatic knife, (yes, I own one).

This is the knife I have been waiting for! The S30V blade is a dream come true, and the plunge lock is excellent. I like the "red-you're-dead" coded safety. The knife opens positively, without pretense. The knife has everything you need, nothing you don't.

This will be an EDC knife for me. Buck couldn't have made a better automatic knife at this price point. I showed mine to the local gun shop and they were duly impressed. When I told them how much I paid, ther were even MORE impressed!

Don't wait, buy it from Blade HQ today.

Thank you, Buck!
Needs a fix.

When pushing the the button 9 times out of 10 it doesn't lock. Mine defective? Or does anyone else have that problem?

This one has quickly become one of my EDC knives. I agree with the other review, it is a little on the heavy side. But I don't see a problem with the spring being weak. The spring is as strong, if not stronger than a Benchmade auto I have. The blade takes a good edge and keeps it. All around, it's a good knife for the money.
Good value

The Buck auto is an all around good value for what you receive. The blade is good, sv30, and the satin finish is attractive.

The handle provides good purchase. The liner is super nice. The fire button is convenient, but users may be confused at first since it is right next to similar looking bolt. The locking device is an added feature not always found with auto folders. The bold "red your dead" marker distinguishes this safety from many I have seen on autos before. A great addition.
overall it is a good value for the price point.

It is a little on the heavy side. The single most disappointing feature is the apparent weakness of the coil. It doesn't snap out with the force I am used to in auto folders, but again, I am comparing it to knives which cost 2 to 3 times what this one costs.

Buck did a good job with this knife. It looks great and offers everything you need in an auto. Excellent first foray into autos. A great candidate for EDC.
If I could change one thing it would be the force of the fire. A stronger snap would have, in my view, made this knife competitive with auto folders costing 2 to 3 times as much.

Good job Buck.
