Hey guys, I know that these two knives are pretty different (seeing how the buck110 seems kinda monstrous compared to the storm), but which would you say is a better knife overall in terms of performance/quality?

Kershaw makes a good knife, but the 110 has been around for a long time, and for a good reason. I would definitely go with the 110.

Definitely the Storm. Terrific action, Ken Onion design and ergonomics, framelock.

Just make sure it has good lockup!

I'm going to vote Storm. The ergos on this knife are great and no one said anything about the Sanvic blade steel. The shape and steel of the blade work together to make a great knife. Holds an edge good, quite good, and looks like this will be a good EDC/hard use knife.

As is said here quite often, get one and save your $ and get the other. You won't go wrong with either.

I would get the 110, I don't like the Storm very much (for purely subjective reasons which have nothing to do with quality). I'd get Cabela's S30V version of the 110, it's an awesome knife for $60.

The Storm is very well made, and has excellent ergonomics; but the blade has a very thin hollow grind, and the handle is very thin as well.

The Buck has a thicker (if somewhat less sexy) blade,and a *much* thicker handle.

If you want something that carries easy in your front pocket, looks good in your hand, and isn't gonna be used hard, the Storm is a lotta knife for the money. But if you want something sturdier, more comfortable in extended or hard use, and don't mind carrying it in a belt sheath, the Buck is a much more rugged piece of hardware.

I agree with most of what Gryffin said. I find the 110 great for farm chores and hard woods use; while the storm is more condusive to EDC. Personally the only sheath knives I carry on my belt are Leatherman Tools- unless it is a large fixed blade horizontal in the small of the back.

I personally never owned a Buck 110. My father owned a few and was constantly sharpening them. He finally stopped carrying the 110 when I got him a Delic for Christmas. He loved that Delica and carried it until he passed.

I have carried and used bithe the Storm and Storm II. Based on my fathers experience and my own, I would go with the Storm.
