The Buck Knives 842 Sprint Ops Pro is designed to be the perfect, upgraded, everyday carry knife. The 842 Sprint Ops Pro features ball bearing technology that allows this folding knife to open smooth and rapidly when you engage the flipper on the top of the knife. A sturdy liner lock safely secures the blade open while in use. Folds down to easy to carry 4 3/8″ (11.1 cm) when closed. The drop point blade is made of razor sharp S30V steel coated in Cerakote® Graphite Black for added corrosion resistance and durability. The handle is made of super tough, black and blue G10. This knife is easy to carry with the convenient deep pocket clip. The 842 Sprint Ops Pro is perfect for someone that wants the best materials on a modern everyday carry knife.
Ball Bearing Knife Technology Ball bearing knives are designed for smooth and efficient opening with a reduction in friction for rapid blade deployment.
Cerakote® Coating Cerakote™ is a Polymer-Ceramic Composite coating that can be applied to metals, plastics, polymers and wood. The unique formulation used for Cerakote™ ceramic coating enhances a number of physical performance properties including abrasion/wear resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, impact strength, and hardness. Cerakote™ ceramic coatings utilize state-of-the-art technology to out-perform any competitive coating in both laboratory settings and real world applications.
G10 Material An almost indestructible resin laminate that is resistant to heat, cold, chemicals, impact, and other abuse. These tough, durable qualities make G10 well suited for knife handles.
Liner Lock A Liner Lock is a folding knife that locks open via a tensioned metal liner inside the handle. Similar to a Lockback, opening the blade activates the lock. Unlocking is achieved by placing the thumb on the front part of the liner and pushing to the left, which releases the blade. Liner locks are typically one hand open, one hand close. A blade thumbstud, flipper, or hole, enables one hand opening.
Flipper Knife A flipper knife opens by engaging the tab on the top of the knife with your index finger for rapid deployment.

Paul Bos Heat Treat We are known for our blades. Buck Knives is a market leader in edge retention thanks to our 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.
Forever Warranty We warranty each and every Buck knife to be free from defects in material and workmanship for the life of the knife, and we will repair or replace with a new knife, at our option, any Buck knife that is defective.

ONE HANDED OPENING Has a thumb stud, blade hole or other feature to facilitate one-hand use. Some models are one-hand opening and one-hand closing as well.
S30V STEEL This advanced steel, S30V, contains carbon as well as high amounts of Chromium, Molybdenum and Vanadium. This steel combines fantastic edge retention and high ductility combined with corrosion resistance. Double-tempered – it can be hardened to a Rockwell hardness of Rc 59.5-61. However, it is difficult to resharpen yourself, but we do offer sharpening services for a nominal fee.
DROP POINT This blade is full bellied with a strong, thick point for heavier tasks. It can also be used as a general work knife. The top of the blade drops down toward the tip, which minimizes accidental puncturing while skinning. The drop point blade is strong and very versatile.
