Buck 288 QuickFire Assisted Opening Folding Knife 2-3/4" Blade, Black
This is my first new pocket knife in over 30 years so things have changed a bunch. I didn't know what AO was or what to expect but I have to say that this knife is exactly what I wanted. I can open it with one hand, it locks closed so it is safe in my pocket and after a little addictinal sharpening, it is the sharpest blade I own. I love the weight in my hand and the build seems to be very sturdy. I use it as a EDC so it is used for everything. Great Knife! Thanks Buck! Same knife with 31/2-4 inch blade would be fantastic.
