Buck 418 Vertex Folding Knife 420HC Wharncliffe Blade Aluminium Handle
The New 2017 Buck 418 Vertex
The Vertex is a slim, capable folder and something entirely different from Buck. Featuring 420HC steel and an anodized aluminum handle, the Vertex is offered in three popular colors to appeal to the outdoor enthusiast, collector, and everyday carrier. The Wharncliffe blade is excellent for utility type tasks and it has a sharp tip for puncturing. The skeletonized aluminum handle is extremely thin and nothing stands in the way of the liner lock mechanism making this blade very easy to disengage.
420HC is Buck's standard blade material because it approaches the wear resistance of high carbon alloys while delivering the corrosion resistance of chromium stainless steels. Add Buck's exclusive heat-treat process and you have a very user-friendly combination of superior corrosion resistance with excellent strength for wear resistance and durability. You also have a blade that is easy to resharpen. For best performance Buck hardens to a Rockwell hardness of 58-60HRC.
Buck’s Select Level offers reliable products at an unsurpassed value. Quality materials and innovative Buck designs create practical knives and tools that deliver affordable excellence. Made in the USA and backed by Buck's famous forever warranty.
