[26] Buck 503 Prince Knife Review – Pocket Knife

Another classic Buck knife.

BU503: 503 Prince Knife
Buck Knives

Classic, compact, everyday carry. Slightly smaller than the Squire, the Prince also has a slimline design for easy carry.

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 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.
Blade: 2.5″ (6.35 cm) drop point, 420HC stainless steel
Thickness: 0.08″
Length: 3-3/8″ (8.57 cm) closed
Weight: 2.2 oz. (62.4 g)
Rosewood Dymondwood with stainless steel bolsters
Made in the USA

I am considering buying this knife. I have done some research(including watching this video) and I think it is a really nice knife. One question I have is what sort of foods can it cut? My dad usually cuts steak with his knife(similar to the Buck 110) and it cuts through no problem. Thank you

My father's carry knife starting somewhere in the mid-80's, and probably for about 20 years. He doesn't carry it anymore, but I believe he still has it!
