Buck took the popular Marksman™ and created the Marksman™ Tanto featuring an American Tanto Black Oxide Coated blade with stonewash finish. The Marksman Tanto™ delivers one of the toughest locking blades available for tactical operatives. Utilizing the locking mechanism developed by Grant and Gavin Hawk, the SLS (Strong Lock System) is one of the strongest locking mechanisms on the market. The SLS, once deployed offers the strength of a fixed blade knife. An innovative ball bearing pivot system allows for quick and easy opening by simply sliding one finger along the lock strap. Fully opening the blade securely engages the SLS. With a hefty blade of 154CM steel and a solid aluminum handle, the Marksman™ Tanto is designed for heavy use.
