Top 25 Best Selling Blades of 2017: #3 Buck 110 Auto

TOP 25 BEST SELLING BLADES OF 2017: #3 Buck 110 Auto
Presented by

There are few, if any, knives that have survived unchanged for as long as the venerable Buck 110 Folding Hunter. Ever since its introduction in 1964, the 110 has been an evergreen design for Buck Knives. Its striking good looks, capable size, keen blade grind, sturdy lock-up and expertly treated steel have kept the 53-year-old Buck 110 selling briskly year after year.

With so many made and sold over the years, the 110 supports a healthy cottage industry of aftermarket accessories and modifications. One of the most popular and most difficult modifications for the 110 is an automatic conversion: turning the two-hand opening knife into a button-fired switchblade.

Now, with the new Buck 110 Auto you can get one straight from Buck, without having to void the factory warranty by prying the knife apart or paying someone to do it for you. And along with the fun novelty of using a switchblade, the automatic deployment adds a modern level of functionality. With its effortless one-handed deployment, the Buck 110 Auto is the same great pocket knife, only faster to open and use.

The TOP 25 Best Selling Blades of 2017 is based on a ranking of year-to-date dollar sales per day of all non-kitchen cutlery at The Virginia-based dealer stocks the largest catalog of cutlery in the world and serves the most diverse customer base of any knife retailer.

We chose to remove knives available only at from consideration. Exclusives that would have otherwise made the list include:

the HAP40 Spyderco Endura in Mahogany Pakkawood
the s35vn Orange Southard Positron
the s35vn Tanto Andre De Villiers Beast Flipper
the Svord Peasant Knife Exclusives

Certain knives available for pre-order, namely the ZT 0055, Benchmade 87, and DPx HEST/F Urban were also purposefully excluded even though based on pre-orders it’s clear they are among the year’s most popular.
