North America's best-known Crappie fisherman, Wally Marshall, has teamed up with Buck Knives to introduce the "Mr. Crappie by Buck Knives" line of products. The flexible trailing point blades feature a secondary piercing edge to maximize on fish processing and are enhanced with full tang construction. The tip edge makes it easier to poke through tough scales and the main edge is properly shaped for control and comfort while holding in multiple positions over long periods of time. Each knife comes with a rigid plastic sheath featuring built in drainage holes to minimize moisture buildup.
420HC stainless steel 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 their 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 re-sharpen. For best performance, Buck hardens to a Rockwell hardness of RC 58.
