Buck 118 Personal hunting knife
The Buck 118 personal is a classic hunting knife, made in the United States. The shape of the blade is a remarkable 'trailing point'. The tip is located a little higher than the handle. If you look closely you could almost say it is a tanto-shape. To make the tip even pointier it was made even thinner from the spine. Buck designed this knife for hunting purposes. It is therefore optimized to gut game.
Buck constructed the typical Buck-style handle from Dymalux (laminated wood) and the pommel and the knife guard are made from polished messing. It looks like what a classic handle should look like.
The Buck 118 comes with a leather sheath enhanced with a belt loop that offers enough room for a belt up to 7.5 cm.
