The Buck 119 Special is everything you want in a great hunting knife. It's simple, downright good-looking, and highly versatile. And the Buck 119BR Special, with its handsome cocobolo dymondwood handle and shimmering brass guard and butt, will make even the most stoic man turn his head in awe.

The inherent quality of Buck knives is readily apparent in the Buck Special. The classic knife dates back to the early days of the company and remains one of the most iconic knives ever, having been featured in countless movies and television shows.

It's a testament to the quality and design of the knife that it remains as popular as ever. The 6-inch 420HC stainless steel blade provides years of uninterrupted service and befits a knife that functions both as a ready hunting tool or a gleaming mantlepiece.

Its substantial brass guard and pommel give it the look of a classic Buck, complete with blood groove and top-quality craftsmanship.

Made in the USA by the experts at Buck, the 119BR comes with a rugged burgundy sheath made from genuine leather.

This knife is beautiful. The wood, brass, blade shape, and sheath are all so expertly done. The only complaint I have is that tang... man you can feel it bounce inside the handle. Everything else is in point.

Excellent knife -- as advertised. Bad smudge on cocobola handle not able to fully polish out.

I ordered this knife and had it engraved. It was exactly what I wanted with no hassel or 20 questions. They know what they are doing and do it. The price was fair and the shipping was fast. I am ordering another one in a few days.

Just bought this knife as a gift. It is exquisite and feels wonderful in the hand. The engraving is so well done, it is for a special friend and I know he will be really pleased. I might even write another review after his reaction! Thank you so much to Tina for getting this knife to me as quickly as she did. your customer service is excellent.

I've always been a fan of Buck knives and their inherent quality. This knife was spectacular with the choice cocobola wood selection. The sheath is a much better design than past ones in the way it fastens around the handle. Knife Depot was spot on with their timely shipping!

This is the dressy version of Buck's old faithful hunting knife. It's beautiful, with great finish and fit. The Cocobola handle is a small work of art and the substantial brass guard and butt make this look and feel like a classic Buck. The blade is attractive and strong, with the "blood groove" you would expect on a hunting knife blade. The well-made, dark brown leather sheath has a large retaining flap that wraps around the handle (not just a skinny leather strap). U.S. made! And a great value.

The knife its self is beautiful. I gave it as a gift. I had ordered the knife with engraving however the knife came in with no engraving. To send it back would have missed the event of giving it as a gift. The person that I gave it to was so elated with the quality of the knife did not want to send it back for the engraving .
