Rush® Knife

Model #0290BLS1-B

Current Selection
Satin Finish, 420HC Stainless Steel
Anodized, Blue
Carry System:
Stainless steel pocket clip, removable


Quick, easy, one-hand deployment. An assisted-opening knife with patented ASAP Technology® and skeleton frame handle. A safety lock prevents the blade from accidentally opening, but after disengaging the safety the blade opens rapidly with the flick of your thumb. A pocket clip is included for easy carry. Made in the USA. Buck's ASAP assisted opening knives are functionally different than automatic/switchblade knives. Switchblade knives use a button/lever in the handle to release the blade and the blade cannot be moved at all without entirely opening the knife. As with many things, knife laws change and vary from location to location. It is the user's responsibility to comply with all regulations. For more information please visit

Available Features and Options

One Handed Opening

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..

420HC Steel

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.

Drop Point

This blade is full bellied with a strong, thick point for heavier tasks. It can also be used as a general work knife. The top of the blade drops down toward the tip, which minimizes accidental puncturing while skinning. The drop point blade is strong and very versatile.

Excellent Knife

This is my everyday knife. I thought the skeletized handle might not be as comfortable as on my previous Buck but it fits and feels fine. Working with horses you never know when you might need to open a knife one-handed. I count on Buck's ASAP system. It's much easier to work than a stud when you can't look at the knife.

Awesome knife

The Buck Rush knife is a beautiful, fast, and awesome knife. The skeletal grip helps me to never accidentally drop the knife and to always safely cut the object cleanly. The size of the blade is a perfect, happy medium between an oversized and a tiny knife. The 2 and a half inch blade allows me to cut small objects in tight places but isn't two small to cut anything. The spring assist helps me open it extremely quickly that leaves nothing but a blur as it opens up. The blade never scratches and the clip keeps it secure in my pocket but allows me to take it out easily and quickly. I highly recommend the product.
