We have covered these extensively, both when I visited Buck last November, as well as in our April issue’s SHOT Show Review. I was given a 662 Alpha Scout to test, and it is shaping up into a good choice for an EDC fixed blade. Looking for a better sheath for EDC use though. The simple hanging leather sheath is fine on a hike, but not optimal for daily carry.
