Buck Omni Hunter Folding Knife Review

Buck Omni Hunter 12PT Folder 4" Plain Edge Blade w/Sheath, Black

If you're looking for pure function, the Buck Omni Hunter ought to be of interest. The Omni 397BK gives full size features in a folding lockback with ergonomic grip, and it comes with a belt sheath. For rough country use, a belt sheath beats a clip any day.

The dropped style of the handle and the built in finger guard/notch allow hard use with ease. The grip itself, black thermoplastic, is overlaid with a rubberized layer that's warm and comfortable during long cold chores. A thumb stud allows one handed opening, and the mid-handle locking notch eliminates any awkwardness when closing.

Overall length of 5 3/4" closed means even large hands have plenty of room, and the wide hollow ground blade has a fine point and plenty of belly curve for both piercing and slicing. The plain edge blade is strong enough for most camp chores as well.

Folding clip knives are very popular, but if a knife will see a lot of use that clip is not much of an advantage. Blisters tend to cluster where the clip contacts the hand. This practical folder comes with a black nylon belt sheath, to keep the Buck Omni Hunter Knife where you can find it instead of knocked loose into the leaves behind you. For a little more security you can string a wrist loop through the lanyard hole.

As with any Buck, the Omni is covered by Buck's generous Forever Warranty.

  1. This is my daughters first knife. she is 10, and blind. I wouldn't normally have given her a knife this size, but for how secure the grip is. When she has it in her hand, there is total control. the self orienting style handle makes it so she doesn't have to guess where the blade is and which side means business (something even sighted people have troubles with when we get into a hurry). The solid construction mixed with light materials helps with her control of the blade, the thing is so light it really is like an extension of your hand, but with out sacrificing strength of construct...... after a few tests, I was confidant that this was the blade for her. Now if we could just get the edge to dull, I could teach her how to sharpen it!!
