I was recently offered a Buck 100 lockback knife at a good price and decided to take the plunge and have a proper look at one. It arrived this morning and although I’ve seen and handled many cheap copies of the distinctive American classic, I was quite surprised about a few things….
The Buck X-Tract series of multitools is an interesting departure from the plier-based, butterfly opening styled PST clones offered by the majority of manufacturers. Resembling a folding knife more than the accepted multitool format, the X-Tracts are very capable multitools.
The Buck X-Tract 732 FIN is Identical to the X-Tract 730, except the can opener is replaced by an excellent pair of scissors.
The Buck X-Tract 731 LED is Identical to the X-Tract 730, but for the addition of an LED light on the scales.
The Buck X-Tract 730 is the basic X-Tract model, but displays all of the unique features and benfits inherent in the X-Tract design.
