The Buck Vantage Force Select features a satin finished 420HC stainless steel blade with flipper and thumb hole for quick and easy one-hand opening. The black glass-reinforced nylon (GRN) handle features an ergonomic grip. The handle has a stainless steel liner lock and low-rise pocket clip for everyday carry.
I purchased this after hearing some very mixed reviews. But I like to support budget friendly, USA made edc knives. I was actually plenty happy when the knife came in the mail. It came super sharp and seems the quality control issues facing early models have been resolved. No complaints for blade centering or hitting anything when closed. I will say the only negative is that the thumb hole could have been smoothed better and the liner edges and lock edge are not the smoothest and bite you a little, is it a deal breaker? Not at all. It’s well worth the price and I’m happy to carry it.
