Those first two prices Jerry listed are great. I paid $44.80, even with a 20% discount, plus 7% sales tax - of course my purchase helped a very nice eastern NC gun & hunting shop stay in business. I have been carrying the 55 today, carries nicely in the front left pocket of my jeans, not had a use for it yet (changed a lawn tractor tire today - took bigger tools than a pocket knife!)

Here is an over/under comparison shot of the 55 over its big brother, the 110 in the fully extended position.

Here is a comparison shot while they are posed in the famous "knife blades being photographed" position that we are all familiar with.

I have carried it a few weeks since dropping it in my pocket; I have received several compliments from people and one guy wanted to know the model info so he could buy one for himself. Overall the Buck 55 is a good knife to carry, length and blade are great for everyday uses (typical non-heavy duty tasks such as opening boxes, cutting strings/rope, cutting cleaning patches, etc.). It is slightly wide for my tastes in carry - my knife stays in my left front pocket with my cell phone. As much as I like this Buck I have gone back to carrying my black synthetic Case Texas Jack (22087SS) for EDC use (same length, a little fatter, but not as wide). I also find I like having the choice of two blades in my EDC pocket knife.

The 55 is a great knife but I don't like lock-backs in the pocket,small barlows and stockman for in the pocket ::nod::
