Quick, easy, one-hand deployment. An assisted-opening knife with patented ASAP Technology® and skeleton frame handle. A safety lock prevents the blade from accidentally opening, but after disengaging the safety the blade opens rapidly with the flick of your thumb. A pocket clip is included for easy carry.
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 please visit www.AKTI.org.
With assisted-opening knives, the user initiates the blade opening, after which a mechanism completes the opening. A safety lock prevents accidental blade opening – the user disengages it prior to blade opening, then re-engages after the blade is closed.
A Liner Lock is a folding knife that locks open via a tensioned metal liner inside the handle. Similar to a Lockback, opening the blade activates the lock. Unlocking is achieved by placing the thumb on the front part of the liner and pushing to the left, which releases the blade. Liner locks are typically one hand open, one hand close. A blade thumbstud, flipper, or hole,
enables one hand opening.
