The new quick-access Hartsook Neck Knife is the result of a new Buck Knives collaboration with custom knifemaker Doug Hartsook, who created the popular Talon-Lite. Made of high-end S30V stainless steel, the Model 860 was specifically designed for nimble cutting and quick access, ideal for tactical users. These same features also make it suitable for many other uses, ranging from fly-fishing to hunting. The Hartsook's skeletal shape, talon blade and size make it ultra lightweight - just half an ounce, which includes the durable injection-molded nylon sheath. Overall length of the black oxide-coated neck knife is 4-1/4", and the blade length is 1-7/8". The double-tempered S30V blade has a standard hardness of Rc 60. Finished with Buck's advanced Edge2x technology, it's sharper out of the box, holds an edge longer and is easier to re-sharpen.
