Buck is a venerable name when it comes to carrying a gent's knife for EDC, and their 112 Ranger lockback folding knife is one of the more popular models they make. For Traditional Tuesday, we take a look at this classic folder, with its timeless design that spans generations and solid features that make it an excellent everyday folder. A 3" 420HC clip point blade is its main attraction, with a sweeping belly and sharp point that make short work of general cutting tasks. Nail nick deployment keeps the blade clean and sleek, while a lockback mechanism subtly takes its place on the tail of the 112's classy handles. Inlaid Macassar Ebony wood with brass bolsters deliver an iconic combination for these handles, with enough length for a full-handed grip for better control while the knife is in use. A genuine leather sheath rounds out its features and give the 112 Ranger a comfortable home in your EDC. Pick up this made in the USA classic from the link below.

A great EDC IF it came with a 2.9” blade length rather than 3” to make it legal in far more jurisdictions (I am not much for buying a quality knife then having to grind the blade down) and IF it was offered in a more modern higher quality steel.

I really don’t think the knife industry as a whole gives any thought to what people really want or need, They make all kinds of fabulous 3” knives rather than 2.9” knives which can be legally carried in so many more places.

One of the nice things about the Ranger is that the blade is only 3”. That means that in states with a 3” limit you only need to grind off a little to make it legal. 1/8” and you’re good to go.
