The QuickFire is an assisted-opening knife with ASAP Technology®. The QuickFire has an advance design with dual springs to provide an easy and safe blade release. The "quick-firing" blade has a convenient one-hand ambidextrous deployment. The strong mid-lock design and rotating blade safety provide a durable locking strength in the open or closed blade position. Equipped with a reliable 420HC blade steel and stylish steel reinforced handles, this knife is dependable and contemporary in design. Made in the USA. Buck's ASAP assisted opening knives are functionally different than automatic/switchblade knives. Switchblade knives use a button/lever in the handle to release the blade and the blade cannot be moved at all without entirely opening the knife. As with many things, knife laws change and vary from location to location. It is the user's responsibility to comply with all regulations. For more information visit www.AKTI.org. Length 4 1/4" closed. Made in the USA.
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.
420HC STEEL: 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.
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.
