An old adage says that if a knife looks beautiful enough to be in a museum, it’ll probably suffer in its performance. Our latest Badass Knife of the Week begs to differ.

The Buck 124 Frontiersman is one of the most elegant and classy knives you’ll ever see but that doesn’t mean it can’t get down and dirty.

This classic hunting knife carries on the Buck tradition of reliable hunters made in the United States of America. It boasts a 6.25-inch blade made from 420HC stainless steel, which will resist corrosion and take an edge without much effort.

A clip point blade profile is optimal for hunting but versatile enough to tackle daily tasks around the camp.


The satin-finished blade is complemented by the handsome black Micarta handle. An aluminum butt and handle guard further bring the Micarta scales to life while cementing its look and feel as a truly classic knife.

The 124 comes with a black genuine leather sheath so that you can carry this workhorse fixed blade with confidence.
