Customer Reviews

Happy Knife
Merlin Y. on Aug 7, 2018

I just received my 110 elite auto today and as I watched it slide out of the factory wrapping I was somewhat struck by how happy I was to see it. One of my first real knives was a Buck 110 and I carried it for many years until finally losing it during a move. Since then I have come to collect knives of all sorts and carry very few of those that I buy. Having said that, this knife makes me happy in a nostalgic way that none of my other knives has done. Even though it is made of much better steel and components than my original, the look and familiar heft of it alone just made me smile. I will definitely carry and use it for a while and see how it stacks up against the others in my collection. Thank you Buck for finally making this available.

The Buck Ive been waiting for.
Wally P. on Apr 20, 2018

Long been a fan of the 110 but always wished for it to be 1st an auto or d/a and 2cnd a better steel for the blade. I have always settled for a converted 110 the the reliable but could be better 420 steel or i could go to Buck and pay to get a 110 w/ an upgraded steel but no auto. Finally have exactly what I want in an s30v 110 auto. I hope they make a d/a and many more "flavors" of this knife as I can not get enough of these.

DANIEL C. on Dec 6, 2019

The classic Buck 110 just got better with the elite. Bolsters don't tarnish like the old brass buck. Only thing missing is a lanyard hole. The fit and finish is top quality and the upgraded steel holds edge better also. I expect a lifetime of use out of this one.

My first Buck, AWESOME!
Shawn S. on Jan 14, 2022

I'm so impressed with this knife, it's the nicest one I've purchased. It's Amazing in its first impression. I was also super impressed with the Companies testimony of Christ! Amen I plan to find some other good choices as soon as I can and add them to my collection.

George W. on Sep 29, 2020

This an awesome knife, heavy, snappy action, blade stays sharp. And most importantly it awesome.

This is a Buck Knife!!!
CyBoarg E. on Jul 5, 2018

Got my 110 elite auto a few days ago, and it's everything I expected, and more. The fit and finish are very nice. Really like the brushed nickel/silver bolsters and G-10 scales. And the S30V blade is sharp! Everything is tight and well put together. The auto function is fast and smooth. Couldn't ask for anything more. Great job, Buck!

Buck hits a home run!
Thomas F. on Sep 16, 2018

This knife makes me giddy like a schoolgirl. Everything about it is perfect. The quality is top-notch, the fit and finish, the attention to detail, the workmanship, the badass factor, everything! And I swear it's the sharpest production knife I've ever received. This knife is quickly becoming my favorite.

Buck 110 Auto Elite for the elite!
Merlin K. on Dec 4, 2018

Many years ago (about 40) a friend bought a Buck 110, and I had to have one, of course. My favorite store had only a similar, but smaller 112 model. And I snatched it up! Yes, I still have it! The knife has been dropped and abused ever since, and just needs a bit of polishing/sharpening. Then I read somewhere that the 110 was being offered in automatic! Buck wouldn't sell it to me, being a 72 year old veteran I'd be prone to getting into all sorts of trouble with it. BladeHQ, I soon found out, had it for a discounted price and I'd get it by USPS in three days! I tore open the packaging and immediately declared it as one of the nicest best-built things I have ever bought! It wasn't long after that day when the automatic 112 was offered! I tried unsuccessfully to talk myself out of it, and received it yesterday! Together they look absolutely amazing, and the mechanism workmanship is second to none. BladeHQ sends out fliers quite often that make me drool!

Buck Quality
Steve H. on Mar 30, 2022

When I first received this automatic 110 Buck knife, I was very happy with it. Beautiful looking and extremely sharp blade. Unfortunately, I was very surprised that after only 3 days the spring malfunctioned and no longer had enough strength to fully deploy the blade into the locking position. I expected more from a quality knife with Buck's reputation. Fortunately, Blade HQ was very helpful and quickly sent me a return label and when they received the returned knife, they quickly issued in-store credit for the full price including tax. I just ordered another auto 110 and can't wait to get it. Hopefully, it will stand up to Buck's reputation of quality and I won't have to return it this time. I really want this knife to operate properly as it would be a great knife for EDC. Great knife, if it works, but because of the malfunction, I could only give it 4 stars. If this next one works as it should, I'll come back and give it 5 stars. Blade HQ gets 5 stars for their professionalism and wonderful help with this unfortunate situation. UPDATE: Got my replacement for my Buck 110 auto and it has passed the 3 day mark where my original one failed. Seems like it's going to be a good working knife, so I changed the rating from 4 stars to 5. Thanks again Blade HQ for helping with this exchange. One more thing I'd like to add. My replacement knife has been working fine, but just yesterday it failed to open all the way to locking position a couple of times. I almost felt sick, but just a couple drops of gun oil on the hinge and it flips out stronger than it did out of the box. Now I'm very pleased with this automatic Buck 110.

Gary W. on Sep 24, 2020

Blade HQ, youall knocked out of the park with the Buck auto,, I got the Elite and fit and finish on this knife is like no other, I will be ordering more and suggest any auto knife lover to get theirs , thank you again for customer support and getting this knife to me in such a timely manner,,,,Gary Williams from NE Ga.

This is the Model 110 they should have made in 1964!
Jon B. on Sep 6, 2020

This is the best "Folding Hunter" ever made! The automatic action is snappy and positive. The lock-back mechanism is as secure as a bank vault. This knife is my favorite carry blade when it comes to hard use. There is little this knife can't handle as well as a fixed-blade sheath knife. The CPM-S30V steel with the cryogenic Paul Bos treatment makes this blade "tougher than whip leather", If you want a knife that can work harder than you ever will, this is it. Buy it NOW. (You won't regret it).

Tops out every category
Douglas S. on Dec 3, 2019

Wow, take a breath! Rec'd my 110 Elite yesterday from BHQ. Stunning sized auto, it's rock solid, no wobble ANYWHERE, clean blade action on release and closes properly, sharp blade edge (yes -- like a Buck), sheath is tight and won't accidentally fire the blade (I tried), and I could go on. So, if you can get one, do it before they become too hard to find. Thanks BHQ!

Well Done
Melvin L. on Oct 21, 2020

Nice job guys, easy web site to shop, great service and quick turn around time. And the knife is awesome. This is buck # 4 for me, and I'm looking forward to hunting season and putting her thru the paces.

Daniel D. on Dec 7, 2018

Buck took the already outstanding and time-tested design of the 110 and gave it some modern upgrades (G10 scales, nickel silver bolsters, S30V steel, and yes, AUTOMATIC). Absolutely solid build and perfect fit and finish with zero blade play in any direction. All seems and edges are perfectly flush. The blade was very sharp out of the box. I just gave some finishing touches on the strop to improve it more. The automatic opening mechanism is both snappy and smooth with rock solid lockup... At the current sale price, you can not go wrong with this purchase.

Just received my new knife... one word sums it up.. "WOW," Best knife I've ever had... since my original Buck knife I bought back in the mid Seventies! Gonna get Three more for my two sons and son in law as Father Days gift.

Can't put it down!
Daniel M. on Feb 3, 2020

These new Buck Elite folders are great! The premium blade steel arrives sharp and I've always liked the Buck clip point blade shape. These Elite blades are substantial near the bolster but taper toward the point for "fine" work. The black, stippled, G10 is grippy and handsome, especially with the contrasting brushed satin bolsters and scale pins. The pins are left rounded, not flush, if that matters. To me, the shorter Ranger 112 is handier than the 110 and quickly became an edc knife. Because of the weight, or "heft", I prefer belt carry using the included sheath. I've carried an original 110 folder while hunting, camping, and fishing for many years. Honestly, these Elites are so nice you'll be consternated as to whether use them or keep them as "safe queens." I have both and I'm going to USE them! Autos are legal where I live. Please lobby for national legalization of auto knives and preemption.

Best buck I own.
Jacob S. on Nov 14, 2021

I’ve own a few 110’s over the years but this one is the best. I wanted an automatic for edc for awhile so I went with the elite due to the strong durability of the bucks lock back. The automatic feature plus the upgrade materials in the blade/grip are worth the money. I’ve had mine for 8 months now and still works as good as the day I got out of the box. Hold a good edge for a long time. I strongly recommend this knife for someone who wants a good edc knife or add to there collection. The buck 110 elite is a solid knife of both classic and modern design.

Love this knife !!
Adam A. on Nov 26, 2018

Okay so there was some problems with delivery even though I paid for 2 day shipping. It sat in the post office over the weekend!! Man that was the longest negative weekend. Anyway I have been waiting to get this knife for years!! When buck put them out I wanted to wait and see other reviews first. I came across one at a ginshow. It was really slow firing...otherwise I would have picked it up. Glad I didn’t BladeHQ was running their Black Friday sale! How cool is that. I like the way it feels and the blade WOW sp30v steel is the reason I held out for this particular model. Sharp right out of the box! It even took some skin off by accident.! It am just giddy with this knife like a kid Christmas morning! This is another EDC I am carrying with my others as a backup. It’s clean locks up tight there is no play whatsoever and the blade is dead center in the middle of the knife. Those of you you know what I am talking about! This is one of my pet peeves with folders....especially the nes when you pay in excess of a 100$. I have a custom one hand flipper that I paid just about the same price and it’s not even dead center but the quality outweighed the negative. What else can I say about the knife.... I am really happy I finally have my own thank you Buck !😊

Buck Factory Automatic
Larry R. on Jun 12, 2018

This is the coolest knife Buck has made. I thought the general fixed blade was the bomb I bought for my military service during Nam. This automatic was so cool bought one for a friend who is a Navy Seal. I hope he likes it and it gets him out of a tight spot sometime.

Dakota W. on Sep 9, 2018

i've heard buck wont help you out if you're not military or sending through an official buck dealer is this true?
