Buck Knives
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 aluminum handle, the Marksman is designed for heavy tactical operations.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Lock Type, Blade Material, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use
Received this knife for my birthday in July 2014. Been part of my rotation since and has been a joy to carry. Used on a house reno, couple of hunts, fishing, camping, and some outdoor food prep. Has worked flawlessly. Good ergos and easy to open. Like having option of flipper and opening hole in blade. Has kept an edge but is also easy to maintain. Lock is strong but a challenge to close with one hand. Great price for a US made CM 154 blade knife. Does everything I've asked flawlessly. Highly recommended. Buck doesn't always get the love but they nailed it with this one. Great design by the Hawks, too.

Pros: Blade Material, Weight, Blade Sharpness, None
Cons: Handle Feel, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Poor finish and dangerous
My main complaint about this knife is the finish. The flipper is sharp, the blade is very roughly cut out, there are burrs on the drilled holes, there are nicks on the blade and the clip is dented. The list goes on. Is this what people are referring to when saying "Buy American"? The lock takes quite a bit of tuning to get to work properly and one big drawback with this lock is that considerably more force is required to lock the knife open than closed, so it will sometimes misfire. When that happens the blade bounces back to the closed position. Watch your fingers! You also risk pinching yourself when closing the blade one handed if you don't keep your fingers behind the flipper. It's an accident waiting to happen. I was interested in the design, but it's very disappointing.
