When you're in the heat of the moment even the best-laid plans require quick reactions and adjustments to a changing environment. In Buck's latest variation of the highly regarded Sprint Ops series, Buck brings in a reverse tanto blade shape and handle materials to fit into a variety of environments. The high-speed ball-bearing flipper makes for fast deployment of the reverse tanto blade shape designed to give the piercing strength of a tanto blade with the smooth cutting surface of a drop point. Canvas Micarta scales adorn their 0843BKS model giving it an elegant yet high functional appeal. There are models that utilize either black or green canvas Micarta for a durable and robust feel or marbled carbon fiber for a more elegant choice. Blacked-out Cerakote coated hardware is a staple across the entire line with a deep carry pocket clip.
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 be 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.
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.
