Buck 289 Legacy Collection Fluid X1 Folding Knife 3.125" S35VN Black DLC Plain Blade, Marbled Carbon Fiber Handles with Damasteel Bolster - 11665
BU0289CFSLE: 289 Fluid X1
The 289 Fluid X1 is a quick opening, lightweight folder with a distinctly attractive appearance. It is one of a limited edition production of only 150 individually numbered pieces and it has to be held in the hand to fully appreciate its subtle refinements. The materials are top notch and its liner-less construction keep the weight on this lockback design to a bare minimum. The Damasteel bolsters cover the pivot and give this knife a true sense of style in addition to somewhat different opening action. The lockback provides resistance right as you push the blade out of the handle and just before it locks up, but in between, its buttery smooth. We've never actually felt opening action like this and we definitely enjoy it. The lockup might not be vault-like on this presentation-level collectible, but it's not really designed for hard use. Permanently fixed on your desk for opening letters or other light-duty tasks are where we envision this knife spending most of its lifespan and it includes a beautiful black paperstone display box to keep your Fluid X1 safe.
