The Buck Vanguard is a classic, field knife for big game hunters. Fixed blade knife ideal for field work and big game hunters. The contoured handle and safety guard make maneuvering through field dressing a breeze.
The Buck Vanguard Knife features 420HC steel. This is Buck's standard blade material because it approaches the wear resistance of high carbon alloys while delivering the corrosion resistance of chromium stainless steels. Add our exclusive heat-treat process and you have a very user-friendly combination of superior corrosion resistance with excellent strength for wear resistance and durability. You also have a blade that is easy to resharpen. For best performance we harden to a Rockwell hardness of Rc 58.
This knife features a drop point blade. This blade is full bellied with a strong, thick point for heavier tasks. It can also be used as a general work knife. The top of the blade drops down toward the tip, which minimizes accidental puncturing while skinning. The drop point blade is strong and very versatile.
