The Buck Marksman Knife is made in collaboration with Grant and Gavin Hawk - developers of the SLS (Strong Lock System). The Buck Marksman has a 3 1/2" blade made of 154CM stainless steel, and a black aluminum handle with grooves and contours for secure grip.
Each Buck Marksman Knife is proudly made in the USA.
From the Buck website: When Buck designed the Marksman™, the features definitely deliver one of the strongest locking blades available for tactical operatives. Utilizing the locking mechanism developed by Grant and Gavin Hawk, the new 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. An innovative ball bearing pivot system allows for quick and easy opening by simply sliding one finger along the strap. Fully opening the blade securely engages the SLS. With a hefty blade of 154CM steel and a solid aluminum handle, the Marksman™ is designed for heavy tactical operations.
