I bought this knife to review and add to my collection. The knife came very sharp out of the box and holds an edge fairly well for not being a premium steel. The high hollow grind is great and the finish on the blade is OK but nothing great. Ergonomics are ok. The knife carries very light and thin and the pocket clip carries deep and works well. The thumbhole is pretty small but it is usable to deploy the knife. The flipper action on mine is not great either. The pivot seems tight and a little gritty. The lockup is solid and engages a little earlier than I like but seems pretty solid. The liners are pretty thin and the handles a little slippery. It has gotten smoother with use. The blade centering is not perfect but it doesn't rub and in no way hinders the function of the knife. This knife has the famous Buck forever warranty and if you have any issues Buck will take care of you for sure. All in all I think this is an OK EDC knife. It is not great and I can think of similar priced alternative options. This knife is made in the USA and that may be important to you. There are not many other good USA made knives in this price class. It also has a really good warranty. Buck knives are legendary. With that said I think the Vantage is a good value knife but nothing great about it. There are also other higher priced options available in the Buck Vantage line that I have heard have better materials and fit and finish. All in all I would recommend it as a budget EDC knife.

This knife is a wonder for it's cost. It retains an edge incredibly well for its steel grade and sharpens easily. The flipper allows for quick and easy deployment and the clip is discrete and sturdy. I like the tip up design. The handle is pretty good but is not anything super. it also just looks good.

That happened to me. I promptly sent it back, called up Buck customer service and explained, politely, this was unacceptable. They sent me a new one with a well centered blade.

I sent mine back to Buck for an off-center blade (rubbing on the liner) and their "repair" was to tighten the pivot screw down so hard that it is now no longer a flipper knife. Makes a great paperweight now!
