Buck Knife 112 Review
“Before I review the 112 Buck Knife I’m warning you of a “déja Vu”, because both 110 and 112 are very close knives”
The 112 Buck was born after a modification in the Army that forced the soldiers to hold a folder knife with a specific blade length, which wasn’t in terms of the Buck 110’s blade length, so as an adaptation from BUCK the Buck knife 112 was born.
The 112 comes with a 3” clip point blade made from the 420HC steel, offers good edge retention, good wear resistance, and great corrosion resistance, it comes with a beautiful finger grooved ebony wood handle, a locking system in the back, and of course the black leather sheath that for your belt.
The 112 knife will get the same credit as the 110 knife, since they’re the same, the 112 has good edge retention and works well in a wet environment, a great pick for hunters, campers, and outdoor adventurers.

Buck 112 VS 110 – Some Key Differences
- Blade Lenght: BUCK 112 has a 3” blade on the other hand the Buck 110has a 3 3/4” Blade.
- Weight: BUCK 112 weight is 5.9 Oz, meanwhile Buck 119’s weight is 7.2 Oz.
As you noticed, both knives are very similar the key difference is the blade length, so if you’re willing to choose one of these it depends on of three things, your usage (are you looking for a long length or a short one, for example, if you need it for some precision work like skinning the 112 is a better choice), the second criteria is the law enforcement in your state, you should always make sure that the blade length is in good terms with the law, and finally, the hands if your hands are big (like mine) the perfect choice would be the 110 buck knife, it has a bit larger handle, and finally the best thing a could advise you is to use the two of theme and try for yourself because genuinely speaking there is no “Best buck knife” it depends on you, but one thing is sure, you should always take good care of your knife (oil it and dry it after usage) so it can last years and years.
