This Buck 112 Auto model is built with a 420HC steel blade and a Macassar Ebony Dymondwood handle with brass bolsters. The Buck 112 Ranger is a classic iconic American knife that has been given an official automatic upgrade. With the highly popular launch of the 110 Auto, the next logical step was to upgrade the 112. There's no need to worry about third party conversions, this 112 features built-in automatic action straight from Buck's factory. The 112 Automatic is quickly deployed with a simple press of the firing button. Item includes a genuine leather sheath designed to prevent deployment when removing the knife.

  • Cryogenically treated 420HC blade provides excellent sharpness and edge retention.
  • Push button automatic deployment allows for fast, one-handed blade deployment.
  • Friction fit leather sheath offers secure belt carry and storage.

Buck 112 auto

I bought this bad boy on a complete impulse last week. The larger 110 auto caught my eye last year, but at 3.75 inches it was just too big for my taste. I didn't even know the 112 auto was coming, but when I saw it on the scrolling homepage banner last Friday, I immediately ordered it.

After a few days with the 112 Ranger Auto, I am absolutely in love with it. When I first opened it up, the action was very smooth but disappointingly slow. I believe that was due to the thick black grease that was in the pivot and just being tight and new. I am glad to say that after blasting it out with air, firing it a few times, and lubing it up, it's a rocket. Fires hard and has a great sound when it locks up. Also makes a very satisfying click when you close it.

I read a bunch of reviews on the 110 auto and many people said they had minor scratches and dings upon unboxing, and that theirs felt gritty when new. That was absolutely not the case with my 112 auto. It was 100% perfect, the brass was beautifully polished, and I couldn't find a single imperfection. Mine was also smooth as glass from new (just a little slow initially).

I have been collecting nice automatic knives for about fifteen years, and have a bunch from the big makers ranging from $200-$500. In my opinion this knife is a steal at $140. Fit and finish on mine were top notch. Action is great. Sheath is very high quality. And made in the USA.

ps BladeHQ please make the 112 to match your upcoming 110 auto in green micarta with brushed bolsters and stonewashed blade! I will buy one in a heart beat. Given the success of the 110 auto, I bet the more EDC friendly size of the 112 should be a slam dunk.

Late last year I bought the Buck 110 auto and was impressed with the build quality though not with the warranty, (more about that in my review of the 110). Though I really like that knife, the 110 blade length is too long to legally carry in my state, except as an outdoors tool for camping, hunting, fishing and the like.

So when the Buck 112 Ranger came out in auto, I just had to have one despite it's somewhat steep price tag. Must say in spite of price, I'm not disappointed!

At 3 inches, this little 112 has just the right blade length to legally carry anywhere in the state and I'm pleased Buck had the good sense to bring it out in an automatic configuration. This knife is every bit as well constructed as its big brother and will be my EDC from now on. Though a bit heavy at almost 6 ounces, the 112 is still small enough for pocket carry if you don't want to use the included leather pouch.

Blade centering seems to be good. The blade deploys fast and locks up with zero blade play and so firmly the knife almost feels like a fixed blade.

The false edge on the clip point, (swedge), is sharp, as if the final de-burr of the edge was skipped, but a little emery sanding will break the keen edge down.

The action is just a touch gritty and the coil grinds a little when closing the knife, but will no doubt smooth with use. (This is something my 110 did as well.)

The included pouch is top quality and a dab of mink oil will make it a little more pliable and water resistant.

Despite the little hiccups, all in all this knife is a winner for those looking for a ruggedly reliable old school design in a modern tool.
