Buck 659 Large Pursuit Lockback, 3.63" 420HC Stainless Satin Drop Point Blade, Black GFN with Green Versiflex Onlay Handle
A multi-purpose alternative to traditional hunting knives, the Pursuit Series fills the need for a mid-range hunting knife designed to be suitable for beginners and the experienced, serious hunter. These USA made knives are available with standard or gut hook variants. Available as sturdy folders, they pack down smaller for easy carry, are easily opened with one hand and utilize a lockback design for safe use. Added detail was put into the design, creating a comfortable, non-slip profile. Designed for excellent performance, the Pursuit Series line is a perfect field option.
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.
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 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.
420HC is Buck’s standard steel with great edge retention and corrosion resistance. This industry standard is easily resharpened. For best performance, Buck hardens to a standard Rc 58-60.
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.
