Review of the Buck Redpoint and Buck Flashpoint – Product Review and Comparison after carrying both

I’ve carried the Buck Redpoint for 1.5 years now, and I am very happy with its performance as an every day carry knife. I use it to open packages, cut tape, cords, ropes, cardboard and when in the great outdoors a variety of camping tasks. Read my Buck Redpoint review here.

It has never let me down! It has a great combo edge blade which comes in handy. It is not slippery even when wet, and holds a pretty good edge.

Recently, I had the opportunity to upgrade to the Buck Flashpoint – in my opinion, a much sleeker feeling, stylish and more functional knife because it has a carabiner clip on the end, so I can clip it on a pack or loop if I don’t want to carry in my pocket.

What are the differences in the Buck Redpoint and Buck Flashpoint, you ask? Well, let’s compare the two.
