Based on Buck Knives’ easy-to-carry classic 112 Ranger, the Post Falls, Idaho, company has introduced a line of lightened and streamlined 112s for those who prefer pocket-portable folders. The 112 Slim Pro closely resembles the Ranger and retains its functionality and 3” blade design—albeit with enhanced, satin-finished S30V stainless steel. Weight savings were achieved by replacing the heavy handles and bolsters with G10 (black) or Micarta (green or brown) material, allowing the 112 Slim Pro to weigh in at between 2.6 and 2.8 ozs.—approximately 3 ozs. less than the 5.6-oz. Ranger. Finally, bilateral thumb studs have been added to facilitate one-handed opening, along with a reversible pocket clip. Buck’s 112 Slim Pro has an overall length of 7.25”, or 4.25” when folded, is priced at $100 and, of course, is made in the USA. The 112 Slim is also available in a Select package featuring molded nylon handles, a tumbled 420HC stainless steel blade, and a price of just $38. The larger Buck 110 knife has also received the Slim Pro and Slim Select treatment for $110 and $42, respectively. For more information, check out buckknives.com.
