With assisted-opening knives, the user initiates the blade opening, after which a mechanism completes the opening. A safety lock prevents accidental blade opening – the user disengages it prior to blade opening, then re-engages after the blade is closed.
Our patented Shift Mechanism™ serves as an advanced locking and safety mechanism. It not only locks the blade open when extended, but also prevents accidental opening when the blade is closed.
An almost indestructible resin laminate that is resistant to heat, cold, chemicals, impact, and other abuse. These tough, durable qualities make G10 well suited for a knife that will get well used in extreme environments.
Made in the USA
At Buck, we are proud that this knife is made in the USA. The materials and workmanship involved in creating your knife will be done with the utmost care and will be free of defects.
