Has a thumb stud, blade hole or other feature to facilitate one-hand use. Some models are one-hand opening and one-hand closing as well..
This is Buck's standard blade material because it approaches the wear resistance of high carbon alloys while delivering the corrosion resistance of chromium stainless steels. Add our exclusive heat-treat process and you have a very user-friendly combination of superior corrosion resistance with excellent strength for wear resistance and durability. You also have a blade that is easy to resharpen. For best performance we harden to a Rockwell hardness of Rc 58.
Serrations give your Buck blade greater cutting power. Especially useful when cutting line and/or cables.
I lost my Crosslock Horseman yrs ago. Pleased to see they have reissued an updated version. The slotted handle is easier to grip and clean out the internals. Pick locks and is sturdy for its intended use. The blade is a Buck, nuff said. Suggestion, as a western hunter/horseman I would like to see this knife with a "Zipper" style gut hook blade with a saw along the back bone of the hoof pick...it would be great for outfitters as well.
