After Buck Knives introduced their series of Silver Creek fishing knives, they were pleased with the positive reaction, but braced themselves for the predictable question from fishermen who asked when they could get a folding version with the same advantages, including the desired blade flexibility that is difficult to achieve in a folder.
The answer is Buck’s new Model 220 Silver Creek Folding Fillet Knife. It has a 6-1/2” blade that locks open to a solid 13-3/4”, yet folds to a compact 7-1/4” for easy carry in a heavy-duty nylon sheath. It weighs just 6.0 oz. The blade, made of 420J2 stainless steel and titanium coated for added corrosion resistance, is so flexible it can run flat on the table for clean fillets. A thumb-notch in the blade makes it easy to open with one hand. And Buck’s reliable mid-lock mechanism ensures safe use.
As with the other Silver Creeks knives, the glass-reinforced polypropylene base handle has a textured, soft rubber overmold, ergonomically shaped for comfort, with anti-slip ridges for sure grip. A stainless steel guard adds durability and safety. A lanyard loop at the end of the handle helps keep secure in use.
With its promise of durability, flexibility and reliable performance, the Silver Creek Folding Fillet knife is backed by Buck’s unconditional Forever Warranty. MSRP is $36. Buckknives.com.
