Buck Knives' new Vantage Force series offers the latest advances in tactical design and innovation for those in need of a lightweight and quick-deployment folding knife.
The three new models all have a 3 1/4-inch drop-point blade, an oversized liner lock and a rugged stainless steel frame.
The 847 Vantage Force Pro is made of highest-quality S30V stainless steel, the blade is black oxide-coated for a non-reflective surface and is also available partially serrated. With a suggested retail price of $135, it closes to a compact 4 3/8 inches and weighs only 4.6 ounces.
The 846 Vantage Force Avid offers all the same basic features, and has a blade made of 13C26 Sandvik steel, with the same non-reflective coating, with or without partial serrations. With a suggested retail price of $95, it weighs 4.8 ounces.
Also providing the essential features and benefits, the 845 Vantage Force Select has a non-reflective blade made of Buck's time-tested 420HC steel, with partial serration optional. With an MSRP of $60, it weighs only 4.3 ounces.
