For many years I have been using Buck knives and I have at least 30 of them. Until lately I have had really good service from Buck blades. However in the last few months I have bought three new Buck Knives and have been really disappointed with them. The grinding angles have not been straight. That is one side of the blade is sharpened (it seems) at slightly different angles. It makes it very hard to get a good edge on them. I usually use the Lansky when a knife is really dull. Once sharp it seldom takes more than a pull or two through the edge Maker sharpeners to keep them shaving sharp. All three have been folders and all American made ones. One is Rush with auto opening. One is the model 281 and the last, the 437T.

Anyone else had problems like this?

I am sorry to hear that Buck is having problems. I have noticed a lot of old name brands are now being made in China. I bought my first buck in the early 70's. Buck set the standard, and started the trend for a strong folding knife for law enforcement and fire fighters. My work knife became my hunting knife. Sad!

These say that they are made in the USA. I have carried Buck hunting knives since I started hunting. I still have my first 110 and I don't even remember when I got it. It was a Xmas gift from my Mom. I just polished it up and touched up the blade about a week ago. Still a sharp knife and good as it ever was.

I wouldn't hesitate to call them. When I've spoke to them in the past they were very helpful and wanted to make things right. They care about their customers and want feedback on their products.
