post-minibuck.jpgNo Toolmonger should be without a pocket knife, but in this post-9/11 world you’ll find little understanding at concerts, sporting events, and even major company office entrances for the larger models you’ve probably carried in the past.  Forsake a pocket knife no longer; we have a solution.

When one of our contributors brought a Buck Knives Model 425 “MiniBuck” into our offices a while back, we were immediately taken with its size, shape, material and functionality.  Its hard 420HC steel folding lockback blade holds a point very effectively while its thermoplastic handle offers durability and good grip.  And at just 2-7/8″ and 18 grams, you almost don’t notice that it’s in your pocket.  Within a month, we all picked up MiniBucks as our “everyday” pocket knives, saving our larger knives for evenings, weekends, and for use in the shop.

The MiniBuck isn’t a fancy knife, but then again Buck used to ask just $15 for it.  Sadly, they chose to discontinue it for unknown reasons.  The good news is that we’ve had no trouble finding them online (or on eBay) for $10 or less — it just takes a little poking around.  (Of course now that we let you know, they may not be so easy to find.  Trust us, though, when we say it’s worth the effort.)
