I only have one Buck slip joint. My son got it for me for Christmas a couple years ago.
The fit and finish is very good. I also like that it has three backsprings. It makes the knife a little wider, but thats o.k for me because I have big hands. The other benefit imho is that the blades lay straight. Stockman knives with only two springs have the blades kinked, so they will all close, but that usually means they are going to rub a little. Of course not all of them do, but I've owned quite a few that do.
I really like the blade profile on the Bucks too, and they came nice and sharp right out of the box. This model also comes with a nice pocket sheath. I've only used it a couple times, but it's a nice touch. The only negative I have about the knife is as others have mentioned. The springs are a little weak, so the snap is very minimal.
It doesn't hurt anything if the knife is used correctly, but I'm use to springs that are a little stronger.
