Back lock knives are something of an American tradition, with the simple folders providing solid utility and durability in a compact, timelessly-styled package. Buck Knives undoubtedly played a pivotal role in popularizing this style of pocket knife, with the Idaho outfit famously producing its Buck Model 110 Folding Hunter starting in the early ‘60s. The latest in Buck’s evolutionary chain of back lock offerings is the Slim RANGER Pro — a modified take on the classic Model 112 — which has just debuted in a thoroughly-modernized form.

Like the original RANGER, this new version is equipped with a 3” clip point blade that’s now composed of top-shelf CPM-S30V (with a 58-60 HRC). Weighing just 2.5oz, the high-end blade steel’s been paired with a trick set of marbled carbon fiber scales — a material originally developed by Lamborghini that packs half-a-million turbostratic fibers for every square inch. Boasting an incredible strength-to-weight ratio, the 4.25” forged carbon handle features a stainless steel back lock and a stainless steel tip-up clip, while dual-thumb stuff affords the flipper fully ambidextrous use. Overall, the Slim RANGER Pro manages to retain the Model 112’s classic silhouette, while adding a bit more performance and modern aesthetic appeal, making for an elegant and understated EDC option. Available now, the Buck 112 Slim Ranger Pro Lockback Knife Marble Carbon Fiber is priced at $120.
