    Nice knife...but easily lost

    Posted by IantheChemist on 22nd May 2020

    I have one of these and got a lot of use out of it. They're a lovely little knife to use, and great for everything from opening boxes and cutting cords or tubing to whittling when you're out camping. Nice looking knife and decent steel too - takes and holds a good edge. BUT I have relegated mine to the car glove compartment and reserve duty because it doesn't have a pocket clip and fell out of my pocket and got lost... I eventually found it weeks later, but by then I'd bought a spyderco Squeak with a pocket clip (love that knife). Your mileage on this may vary - if it falling out of your pocket isn't a concern for you, then go for it. As a knife it's great, provided you don't lose it.

    snap

    Posted by Riddly on 1st Oct 2018

    I ordered the Buck canoe in exchange for the High Carbon Rough Rider- The RR was a solid chunk, but the blades were defective.. This feels like a knife that will be around for a while, everything fitting as it should, nice snap open and shut (maybe they've responded to complaints?) No half stop. Certainly better spring than the Buck 311 I was given as a gift (too big for UK carry). I'm able to pinch open the larger blade, helped by it being hollow ground, without having to use the nail nick. The larger blade tip has a perfect line up with the bolster- must have been finished together, but theres lots of meat on the stop, so I can drop it a little when sharpening has reduced the edge. A knife that you'll be aware of in a trouser pocket, bought to replace a tiny Buck colleague that slipped away... but the same steel that impressed me so much on that mini knife. So easily sharpened, keeping an edge for a long time. I might round off the scales a little, but only because I sometimes use a knife for long periods as a primary tool. The canoe ends are actually very comfortable and naturally place your index finger. Buck are impressive. I used their lifetime guarantee for the second hand 311, and it was returned to me 'like new'. tightened up, repolished, scales cleaned. nice to do business with them, and with HH for a free return, no quibble, new knife within 2 days of posting off the return.. great!

    Cracking little pocket knife

    Posted by Gordon on 3rd Jun 2018

    Sharp out of the box, walk and talk good and fit and finish decent. For the price I'm very happy with the Buck Canoe. Again, HH delivery was superb, even snow did t stop quick delivery!

    Fantastic knife

    Posted by Jamie on 26th Feb 2018

    I bought this knife as a work knife for opening bags etc. However when it arrived i was amazed at the quality of it and didn't not take it to work over the fear of loosing it. I instead bought a cheap pocket knife for work purposes. It's also really sharp, and like most cheap non locking knifes, this one dosent spring back when under pressure, cutting your fingers. It's got a great feel to it also, it's a peffect weight and easy to grip. Would well recommend this knife it's brilliant

    A Shame

    Posted by Tricky on 29th Oct 2017

    Expected a fair bit from this knife as Buck have had a lot to say on how moving some of it's production to China won't effect the quality of it's products. With some aspects of this knife they were right, the blades appeared up to Buck's usual high standards, as did the general fit and finish. There was one major aspect of this knife that really let the side down, it had the weakest, wettest back spring I've ever encountered on a slip joint ever. With the angle a Canoe style knife blade is at when deployed, it was just unsafe and you really don't want that Buck high quality blade folding down on your fingers. Sent it back, got it replaced and the next one was exactly the same. I consulted a few people on the issue to make sure I wasn't being overly fussy and they agreed, the back spring was not fit for purpose. That went back. A real shame as the rest of the knife was very good.

    No snap

    Posted by vultee on 4th Oct 2017

    I own several "canoe" style pocket knives and they are the perfect pocket knife except for one annoying trait, none of them have a positive "SNAP" when opening or closing like the brilliant Victorinox, if the Americans could make their knives like this they would be absolute perfection.

    Excellent knife

    Posted by Carl on 14th Sep 2017

    Wow! What an excellent little knife. The fit and finish are absolutely perfect. Smooth and solid action and locking, with no blade play. Both blades are razor sharp OTB. It may be made in China, but the quality is way beyond my U.S. made Buck 110, which had gritty action and poor quality finishing. If this is the high quality of Buck knives coming out of China then i`ll definately be buying more. This is a beautiful looking and useful knife and i recommend it to anyone who`s thinking of buying one.

    A Buck Canoe for life's travels.

    Posted by Stevo on 22nd Jul 2017

    Canoe pattern slipjoints are perceived as charmingly old-fashioned. "My grandad had one like that," or "That's a nice one, where did you get it from?" are the usual sort of comments you hear when using one around workmates or friends. Several people have been referred to Heinnie's as a result, with the predictable result - another happy camper! Buck has brought subtle details into their version of the Canoe. As most know, the Chinese manufacturing which is used for some of Buck's products is usually to a very good standard. The lines are crisp and tidy. Both blades have sabre grinds, satin finishes and very good edges right out of the box. The laminated hardwood scales have some pretty figuring on mine. The scales are just a bit thicker and flat in the middle then tapering smoothly to the bolsters. There are no gaps between the brass liners and the scales; fit and finish truly is well done. The walk and talk is good. Pull strength is about the save as a Vic SAK. Smooth as silk but two hands are definitely needed. No pinch opening with one hand as on my Case or Rough Rider Canoes. The spear blade on the Case is meant to sit higher, intended to allow the blade to be pinch opened using two hands without having to find the nail nick. As noted, one hand opening is possible on my Case. Same with my RR; but due to a softer backspring. The Buck is more trim, without the humpback look of the Case. So two hands are needed to open it. If you are used to the average SAK, you will be right at home with the Buck Canoe. This is a very comfortable knife to use, something Canoes are noted for. As a UK friendly EDC, they do just fine. Buck heat treatment is well regarded, and the edges easily touch up with a few strokes on a ceramic sharpener. Thereafter, stropping is all that is needed, I find. This is a classic ergonomic pattern that continues to win new users. Sturdy and serviceable! Buck have done a nice job with this one. It easily has my recommendation.
