I've had a number of Bucks in 420HC, and I've never had a problem with them. I tend to prefer 420HC over 440C, but that is almost entirely because of Buck's heat treatment. In most other brands, I'm not a fan of either of these steels. Does anybody know who GEC uses for heat treat? If it's Bos (Buck's HT shop), then these 420HC knives will be great.

Yes they use Peter's Heat Treatment. I'm Canadian so I don't know much first hand myself but I've heard nothing but good reviews both from the Traditional world of knife collectors and the Modern folder collectors as well.

Got my first GEC fixed blade. Pretty nice for the price. I hope the 83 bocote looks this good.
