Buck's revolutionary 110 folding knife is now available as an official automatic! No need to worry about third party conversions, this 110 features built-in automatic action straight from the manufacturer. The 110 Automatic is quickly deployed with a simple press of the firing button. This knife is equipped with a 420HC stainless steel blade in a satin finish. Its handle is made with an eye-catching combination of genuine ebony and brass bolsters. Includes a genuine leather sheath designed to prevent deployment when removing the knife.
Check out our Buck 110 Auto Review to see exactly how awesome this knife is.
Buck is iconic, and this folder has a beautiful blade, fast action, sweet appearance, and solid lock up. There are no screws to adjust the distance between the bolsters, and there is slight blade play that may not be an issue for some, but certainly will not improve with time. There may have been an improvement in the shiny black leather case, since there are no places where metal might scratch a bolsters as others described. In fact the case is lovely. If there were an option for 4.5 stars, that would be my score. For the price, it's well worth the purchase. In fact, I'm rounding up to 5 stars. Cheers!
Just like the original, except the ability to open one handed. Opens very quickly and with authority, locks open every time. Arm hair shaving sharp right out of the box. As far as another review goes, I would not be afraid of pocket carrying, (other than the size, it would take some big pockets for this knife.), the operate button is slightly recessed, and takes a firm push to open. The reviewer may have one of the "conversion" knives and not the true factory Buck 110 auto. And as far as another review mentioned the inside of the snap scratching his knife, Buck must have addressed this issue, mine has a piece of leather inside the sheath that covers the back side of the snap. This knife is a keeper and will be put to use as my original as soon as the auto knife law changes take effect here in my state.
I was glad to find that Buck had finally made there own conversion. I got this for my EDC but decided against it when I saw how good it looks and feels, it just goes into the collection. Outstanding quality and workmanship.
I bought this and the 112 auto at the same time. Both look very nice, and the machining is excellent. Both came sharp, and with the addition of a little oil, they both open nicely. The wood is free of defects, and the brass is smooth and shiny, just the way it should be. Neither one opens as fast or as smooth as the button conversions I have bought from bladehq in the past, but they are ok. Overall I am pleased and glad I bought them.
I got this knife as a present one year. I have used my regular 110 to skin a lot of deer with, but it is safe to say this one will not be used for that! It opens really fast and smoothly. The blade is hair-shaving sharp and shiny. Just be sure not to leave fingerprints on the endcaps because they will leave marks. Buck quality at its finest!
I recently received my Buck 110 automatic. Since the early seventies with the purchase of my first buck 110 I've always had a nostalgic attraction and appreciation for the Buck 110. Many times since I've seen and heard about aftermarket automatic versions but was reluctant to invest in one. Now that Buck has chosen to manufacture it I bought it with confidence knowing that they will stand behind it. Upon first inspection of my new Buck 110 automatic I was struck with the Buck 110 appeal, craftsmanship, quality and nostalgia. It was 'scary wicked sharp" right out of the box. A couple drops of Nano oil on the hinge and it is totally 'Awesome'. This is a must-have knife. You'll love it!
This is a wonderful knife the bolsters are beautifly polished, as well as the ebony wood. Although it is a little overpriced considering the cost of a standard Buck 110 it is still well worth the money. But, if you like Buck 110's do yourself a favor and get one.
Excellent Buck Quality, Opens with a snap, yet the blade has no side play. A great new product from a reliable old friend. BHQ is an excellent company to do business with, quick shipping and great customer service!
An American Iconic Classic now even better with being offered as a full automatic!! I've always loved the look and feel of the 110 since I was an early teenager and am now 55. When I realized Buck had introduced this great classic knife in an automatic I knew I had to have one. This knife just exudes pure quality through and through and putting the genuine ebony scales back on it puts the icing on the cake indeed!! This knife is just flat out beautiful and when the button is pressed, the blade flies out of the handle with much authority with no weakness whatsoever!! Thank you Buck for bringing this out in full auto!!!
Nice auto from Buck. Seems to be a quality build. Squirted some slick-um in the mechanism to lube things up a bit. Enjoying playing with it. Time will tell how it holds up. As always BHQ is excellent to deal with.
This is a wonderful knife just like my regular 110. I've Been carrying my reg. 110 for about ten years. I retired it for the auto. It's been on my side since it bought it. It's nice to have an one hand opening knife. I work on the water, on vessels and the one hand opening knife is great to have. The quality is still and always be there. Plan and simple, IT'S A GREAT KNIFE PERIOD.
EDC for a month now without any problems. Someone on here was disappointed with their spring action. Might of just got a bad apple? Mine so far flys out like a rocket. It also came very sharp right out of the box. If your looking for a robust auto I say go for it.
Buck 110 was my first knife I owned in 1980 seen this version and had to own it. Very pleased with the knife action, love playing with it. Most of all I love showing it off.. becoming the envy of all.
I cant show it off to friends or relatives without them trying to talk me out of mine lol
I am very impressed with the fit and finish on this knife, there are no compromises to the original 110, this auto is just as tight and sturdy. I own lots of Auto's, and I love my Benchmades, but this Buck is just as fun and useful at a lower cost. As usual, dealing with BladeHQ was a pleasure.
I purchased this knife from Blade HQ. I am so happy with my knife. It is a very well made knife and beautiful. I love playing with it. The 110 Auto fires excellent every time with a strong lockout. I highly recommend this knife and Blade HQ (very fast service and prices as good or below other dealers).
I got this from my parents for christmas because I was in need of a new hunting knife, I really love it. It looks so nice I dont even want to use it, lol.Smoothest auto I have ever felt. Mine came extremely sharp, like shaving sharp! My grandpa has one(Not the auto version) he got like 30 or 40 years ago and has used it to process a lot of deer, and is still going strong.So i expect to have it a long time.Also comes with lifetime warranty! If you want one just get it, you wont be dissapointed.
As a 62 yo simple country doc who's always carried an edged instrument since I was 15, I've had a few knives. This 110 Auto is well-made; just the sound it makes when deployed evokes a feeling of reliability and control. I haven't had it very long but so far its performance lives up to those feelings... and in spades. Sharp as hell right outa the box as well. No regrets. Well done Buck, kudos to Blade HQ for stocking these.
It's the old reliable classic with a little more ease of use. I would like a safety for pocket carry. Sometimes the sheath isn't the best carry option. It has replaced my Microtech for EDC. Buck makes a good product, and they stand behind it.
Great Knife , did not get leather sheath
I received this knife in perfect condition and upon opening the box I was pleased by the excellent craftsmanship and finish of this knife. It’s action is flawless and it’s almost to nice to use!
Just recieved my 110. Cant believe I was looking at conversions before I became "enlightened." Better knife mechanism- Better price- Lifetime waranty- No brainer Buy this knife!
Amazing how Buck has taken a true classic and made it even better!! Opens quick and solid! Locks up tight! Looks as good as it works! My new carry... may buy another one just to hold on to!
Thanks BHQ.love you folks been eyeing this knife for a few years had to get it no regrets it's a beauty Get it Ladies and gentlemen you will love it❤
Received my Buck 110 today and wow. This knife is a real winner. It feels and looks great and opens smoothly and with real authority. Ordering was quick and easy and it actually arrived sooner than I expected. Buck and Blade HQ really out did themselves one this one.
There is nothing loosely machined, tolerances are close therefore cleaning and lubrication is a must during break in period. You will not be disappointed and as always, it will last a lifetime. Get a couple you won't be sorry. Bud
Yea, this blade absolutely perfection, this is the knife you will wish you bought instead of that BUG OUT This is serious knife competition for any of your pro knife collector friends and will blow away anything else that someone has from Home Depot. Also just a work horse, or the guy at the Olympics who throws the shotput, of a knife this mini Bowie knife will do it all! All hail the AutoBuck Queen of Blades!
The best auto ever.order on dec 21 came in 3 days.top of the line buck.love this blade.my son will now be a Bladehq guy as i will be back for more great deals on some really nice blades.
Not much to say really, this is THE consummate folding knife. I've carried one like this on my duty belt for well over 30 years and, now that I'm thinking of retiring, I bought myself an early retirement gift. There's nowhere to improve on this knife. It's crispy, solid, the joint is impeccable... No way to improve on the knife. And the engraving? Perfect! Just what I wanted. Thanks to Buck and Blade HQ!!!
Back in the Summer of 1976 I purchased my first Buck 110. I was 33 years old and paid a whopping $25.00 for it from the local small West Virginia town Hardware Store; needless to say it's lasted with no problem. About 10 years later I was driving through an intersection in neighboring Ohio and while waiting under the traffic light to make a left turn I spotted a knife laying right smack in the center of the road in front of my Jeep. Jumping out before the light changed, I picked it up and saw that it was a very nice (minimum wear) Buck 110 with the side factory engraved "Ohio Farmer"! That was my second 110. About six months ago and now at 75, I saw the new release of this 'automatic' version' and had to have it. All three have been carried, sharpened, dissected a couple hundred Moving Van Cartons in the four cross-country relocations I've made and used them (as one should) for the attendant hard jobs. The blade stands up to the worst punishment but comes right back to new-looking with a little sharpening and loving care. IMO, not a better all around, working EDC can be found! After giving my first purchased one away to my son-in-law a few years ago (he still carries it), and noting how sturdy they truly are, I just had to have this new version. As expected, it is a top-notch carry knife and one that is in my FJ Cruiser constantly. So many uses for this "Classic" that I always carry one of the two with me no matter the day or job! Truly a high quality "Man's Man" knife; no matter the version. IMO, not a better all around, working EDC can be found; and now I can easily open it with one hand!
Like many people, I have a long history with the Buck 110 as I was gifted a well used one by a relative when I was around 12. My taste in knives has moved on to more modern designs since then, but I am so glad that I picked this auto version up. I love the classic aesthetic with the modern mechanism. And the best part is, it is still a Buck 110 through and through. Overall great knife.
I always had a Buck on my belt in my younger days. Then for some unexplained reason I started buying all different brands of knives. Lately I’ve been hooked on the automatic knives for their ease of opening. Imagine my joy when I found out that my old friend the Buck is now available in an automatic! My old friend is back home on my belt right where he belongs. Thank you BladeHQ for reuniting us.
I've wanted a 110 for years. My dad had one and I can't remeber what happened to it. When I found out that it was offered in a auto figuration and after much deliberation I ordered one. Fit and Finish: A+, Sharpness: A+, Auto opening: A++, Lock: A++, Case: A+, Safety and ease of handling: A+. I couldn't be happier and Blade HQ was on the ball in fulfillment. AND THE ABSOLUTE BEST IS THAT IT IS USA MADE WITH A LIFETIME GUARANTEE.
Great knife, I really like it. Strong and durable, I believe can last forever, I’m so happy to received so fast only 5 days Thanks Blade HQ ! Good Job ! I still have order already, is on the way coming! Thanks against !
Great knife, well constructed and a really good price. Blade HQ is the only place to buy!
I bought one 3 years ago still going strong. I grew up with the 110 I am not disappointed.
Knife wouldn't open all the way when deployed. I played with it thinking maybe it will break in an no.I put a could drops of gun oil and let it sit for the night and now it works like a charm its amazing knife and it crazy sharp out the box really excited to EDC this knife.
I collect autos so this was a natural choice to add to the collection. I already own a Buck 110 standard. The steel is fine for EDC and general outdoor work. but at this price point should come with higher-grade steel. Not sure if the price increase over standard is justified by the inclusion of the spring/release mechanism alone. But I kind of knew that going in. With that being said, this is the knife for someone who wants to forego the conversion and wants their buck 110 in auto, or just an addition for a collector like myself. There are better choices at this price point for someone who just wants an auto.
I am very happy with this knife. It fires out smoothly and quickly. The fit and finish is perfect. i can find not one thing wrong with it or out of sorts. It is perfect! However, I had to return the first one due to the sheath scratching the bolsters. Buck replaced it and the sheath. The new ones have a felt sticker applied to the rivet backing for the snap which keeps the bolster from getting scratched. The replacement that I received is not as nice as the first one. it is slower and the fit and finish is not as good. So, your mileage may vary-hope you get a good one!
The knife metal and action are great. I am disappointed in the appears of the scales. I have never seen a Buck 110 that had discoloration of the scales - I know wood has variances, but I have not seen on like what I received. Also the reverse scale appears to have had some less than perfect work done on it. Overall a knife I would recommend, but as a gift for my brother, I was a little disappointed in the condition of the scales
I was given this knife as a gift from a very old friend and the quality is superb. The one thing it needs and which prohibits me from regularly carrying it is the lack of a safety. I have already ruined a pair of Levis and badly damaged an armchair from an auto I had that lacked a safety and from the reviews it seems that the holster it comes with has snaps that damage the bolsters...so what is one to do other than shop for a suitable holster. The knife is INCREDIBLY well made however no knocking that.
fit and finish typical for production knife function very good anyone watching will immediately know it is a full auto when opened. my only negative is that it is a little big for an every day carry knife. i really feel it on my belt. additionally i wish it came with a open sheath rather than the snap closure one. i am waiting for a 112 which i think will be a better every day carry knife. not sure either will ever replace my benchmade mini reflex though
I really like this knife. It's a great automatic for both hardcore buck fans but also those people who want an automatic knife that's not overly tactical. It's a little on the heavy side but it's not an issue if you carry it in the really nice leather sheath that it comes with. The steel takes a razor edge and seems to hold it quite well. My only complaint is price, especially when the regular 110 is only 50 bucks. Makes me wonder if the auto feature really adds another 100 dollars...
Disappointed with this knife. The ends of the knife handle, gold or brass in color, are tarnished. Kind of surprising for Buck knife.
The Buck 110 was part of my life. Since my first Boy Scout knife, there's always been a knife in my pocket, and through my teenage years it was often the Buck. (Yeah, big pockets. Work with me, okay?) So I can forgive a lot of flaws for sentimental reasons. Unfortunately, there's a lot to forgive. Of course, after you pick it up the first time, the brass bolsters will never be the same. Besides tarnishing, they scratch easily. You can even leave permanent marks with a fingernail. The main source of frustration is the auto mechanism. At best, it has just enough snap to open the blade when clean and lubricated. From there it goes downhill. The lock spring and lock bar double to provide the opening force. The problem with that is, whatever impulse the blade gets to open, it has to give back at the end of travel. Even if you could increase the spring power, it probably wouldn't help because of that. To keep it working you have to keep it clean and lubricated. A little good oil for the pivot, and a high-pressure lubricant for the lock tab. The best thing I've used is beeswax, applied to the face of the tab with a toothpick while holding the lock bar open. Lightweight grease isn't enough, and a heavy grease (like axle grease) has too much drag. Be careful closing the knife! Mine gives a little click before it's fully closed, and the blade will stay there, but open at a slight shock. Be certain it's closed solidly.
Classic buck design, knife is way too heavy and slippery for modern hard use. The most problem I have with it is the price tag of $150 for 420hc and your typical automatic action. Are we kidding here? I know most people buy knives based on nostalgia/love at first sight, but the price range is too high.
I purchased this knife in late December of 2017 and have found it a durable bit of well made, old school magic with a modern twist. It seems as good as the 110 my father gifted me in the 60s, though more sleek and refined. When I first got it, the spring would grind loudly when the knife was closed and sounded as if the coil had jumped its track. I was on the point of returning it to BladeHQ when, with a sharp ping, the coil seated and the action is now silky smooth. While I had this problem I contacted Buck out of curiosity to see if it was covered by warranty. I was informed that if I sent the knife back to Buck they would simply keep it and not ship a replacement or the repaired knife back to me. Though not mentioned on their site, it seems they only ship automatic knives to first responders, active military, LEO or certified Buck dealers who can prove their status with documentation. So if you're a private citizen, you're S.O.L. even if you're in an auto legal state. Was told it has to do with federal interstate shipping laws and the only remedies open to me were to either be in Buck's home state, ship through a dealer or to work for change in federal laws. They won't do send-in engraving or etching work on an auto either, same reason. Was told to "Take it to a local jeweler or etching company". So if any future problems occur, looks like I'm screwed. Thanks for the wonderfully unusable and gutless "forever warranty" and services, Buck.
Bought this a few months ago mainly because of it’s iconic status. Reviews on other sites stated it was underpowered and not very snappy. I agree. No about a year later, it won’t even fully snap open. Live and learn.
06-17-19 Just received Buck 110 Auto, $129.00 on sale. Will not open under it's own spring power at all. Tried WD-40, two types of gun oil, blew it out with compressed air. Still does not work, Save your money, don't buy this product. Many others out there for less or the same amount of money far better. Way, way over priced for so, so quality. I know I can send it back to be fixed for free. Should not have to do that!!
The auto open action starts out very strong, but it's short lived. Within about a month, you'll see a small, but still noticeable, decrease in speed and strength of the action. About a month after that, the sick realization sets in that you've just paid $150 for a buck 110, with no warranty. EDIT: just purchased a new 110 from buck, with the warranty, and the lockup, is abysmal. I am amazed at what Buck has turned into 👎
Nice knife BUT the spring is horrible! No power at all... I have 2 others that are 3rd party alterations and they blow this thing outta the water.. I'm actually sending it back.. no good BUCK I expected better. .only reason for 2 stars is that it is a nice knife but if your gonna make an auto why skimp on the spring !??
This goes into the safe, will give it away someday... carried and used a 112 forever, just have to wait for the 112 auto i guess. It is built very well, hmm maybe i could go out to the garage and grind an inch off the end? ;-)
