Buck Paradigm Shift Automatic Knife Black - Model # 0591BKS-B
The Paradigm Shift automatic knife deploys in an instant when the Shift Mechanism™ bolster lock is deactivated. Simply slide the Cerakote® coated bolster up and your knife is open! Denoted with gold fasteners, the Paradigm Shift is designed with premium S35VN steel and durable G10 handles to ensure edge retention, strength and durability. A Cerakote coated pocket clip allows for easy carry (where legal), and the bolster lock prevents accidental deployment. It closes the same way as opening- by sliding the bolster open to unlock the blade. Lock it closed by sliding the bolster back in place.
Our patented Shift Mechanism™ serves as an advanced locking and safety mechanism. It not only locks the blade open when extended, but also prevents accidental opening when the blade is closed.
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 a knife that will get well used in extreme environments.
