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.
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.
I live in Russia so I know if some thing is cool. I dropped it in the snow and it was fine!!!!!
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.
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.
