Buck Knives
Utilizing ball bearing technology, the Buck Sprint Select is designed for smooth and efficient opening with a reduction in friction for rapid blade deployment. A sturdy liner lock secures the blade while in use while the sturdy GRN handles give a secure grip. Available in multiple colors, each Select model utilizes 420HC steel. This knife features a convenient deep carry pocket clip for easy carry.

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.

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.

The steel behind the blades
Buck is a market leader in edge retention thanks to their steel selections and heat treat process pioneered by Paul Bos, whose heat treating system has proven to the best in the business. Each blade is put through a rigorous heat treat process and quality performance test then is tempered to the appropriate Rockwell Hardness through a heating, freezing and reheating system. This process, along with attention to detail through grinding and hand edging, is the foundation of Buck’s Edge2X technology. This gives you longer edge life, ease of resharpening and a blade that will not fail you.

420HC is Buck’s standard steel with great edge retention and corrosion resistance. This industry standard is easily resharpened. For best performance, Buck hardens to a standard Rc 58-60.

People who carry a knife every day do so for one very important reason – because they use it everyday. The knives they carry must be as reliable as they are functional, designed to perform effortlessly in whatever lifestyle they are part of.

Cons: None
Smooth operation
This is an edc knife which is light and comforting to carry and use. Ball bearing smooth operation opens with ease. Don’t know why other reviewer is unhappy as the lock functions very well and the scales have ribs that help with gripping even when wet. Overall, a very nice knife and backed by a forever warranty making this a great every day carry and useable knife.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Lock Ease of Use, None
Cons: Handle Material, Pocket Clip, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness
This knife was purchased for my personal collection of domestic and foreign folding knives. IMO it is way overpriced. First the good: the pivot and lock work well, and the blade (420HC) is unlikely to rust. The bad: the plastic scale have a cheap feel, the liners and lock are very thin and flimsy, and the pocket clip is designed to hang the knife at a 45 degree angle in your pocket with a sharp end to stick your palm. The grind is uneven so the edge is much wider on one side than the other.With this knife order I also received a Tenacious with black blade and green G10, and knowing that I could have bought a second Tenacious for $2 less than the Buck Sprint kinda makes me sick.
