he 660 Pursuit Pro Large Folding Guthook hunting knife combines a highly visible, sure-grip handle with Buck's high end S35VN steel. Buck's S35VN steel provides the same edge retention as S30V steel but its properties allow it to resharpen easier, making it a great choice for skinning multiple animals with the option of field sharpening when necessary. The guthook on the blade makes easy work when field dressing. This knife easily opens with one hand using the thumb studs. The blade is secured with a lock-back mechanism for safe use. The comfortable, contoured handle reduces hand fatigue while working. This knife is carried with a heavy-duty nylon sheath with a belt loop. The knife measures 5" (12.7 cm) when closed. Made in the USA and backed by Buck's famous Forever Warranty, this 660 folding Pursuit knife covers all field needs from the beginner to the serious hunter. Also available with a standard drop point blade.
In the Buck Knives hunting line, the Pursuit Pro Series is intended as a solid offering ranging between the Open Season premier series and the Pursuit Series Select line for a premium choice covering the needs of serious hunters.
Lockback folding knives have a mechanism that lock the blade in the open position, activated by opening the blade all the way. A lock back gets its name from a rocker (rocking lock bar) partially visible on top of the knife. Opening the blade causes the rocker to lock against the blade so it locks open. Pushing down on the rocker on top of the handle releases it and enables the user to close the blade. Lockbacks require two hand closing, though some are one hand openers.
Buck is known for its blades. Buck Knives is a market leader in edge retention thanks to their steel selections and heat treat process pioneered by industry famous, Paul Bos, whose heat-treating system has proven to be the best in the business. Each blade is put through a rigorous heat treat process and quality performance test. It is then tempered to the appropriate Rockwell Hardness through a heating, freezing, and reheating system. This gives you longer edge life, ease of resharpening, and a blade that will not fail you.
