Buck Silver Creek Folding Fillet Knife
While never forgetting their hunting roots, Buck Knives continues to strengthen their position as the knife manufacturer with the widest array of product choices, and their interesting range of new knife models for 2010 underscores the point.
This latest addition to Buck's Silver Creek line has a 6 1/2-inch blade and a closed length of 7 1/4 inches. The blade is titanium-coated, so don't worry about rust.
Buck's new Model 220 Silver Creek Folding Fillet Knife. It has a 6-1/2” blade that locks open to a solid 13-3/4”, yet folds to a compact 7-1/4” for easy carry. It weighs just 5.9 oz. The flexible blade, made of 420J2 stainless steel, is titanium coated for added corrosion resistance. A thumb-notch in the blade makes it easy to open with one hand. And Buck's reliable mid-lock mechanism ensures safe use.
After Buck Knives introduced their series of Silver Creek fishing knives, the positive reaction brought with it the predictable question from fishermen who asked when they could get a folding version with the same advantages. Now they have it. As with the other Silver Creeks, the thermoplastic-base handle has a textured, soft rubber overmold, ergonomically shaped for comfort, with anti-slip ridges for sure grip. A stainless steel guard adds durability and safety. A lanyard loop at the end of the handle helps keep secure in use.
