Grant and Gavin Hawk have a new lock system, the SLS (Strong Lock System, catchy huh?), and they have matched it up with this great Buck design. This US made knife also features 154CM steel and a ball bearing system for quick and quiet opening. The Marksman is a serious tactical offering from Buck.
When Buck designed the Marksman, the features included definitely deliver one of the strongest locking blades available for tactical operatives. Utilizing the locking mechanism developed by Grant and Gavin Hawk, the 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 knife. An innovative ball bearing pivot system allows for quick and easy opening by simply sliding one finger along the lock strap. Fully opening the blade securely engages the SLS. With a hefty blade of 154CM steel and a solid aluminium handle, the Marksman is designed for heavy tactical operations.
