Built especially true for hunters, climbers, hikers, backpackers and outdoorsmen who spend a great deal of time on uneven, sometimes wet terrain. The Black Rock Hunter stays firmly closed until it’s needed and then locks rigidly open while in use. Its twin Grivory handles feature two integral springs that are designed to rotate 180 degrees around the AUS 8A stainless steel blade’s unique split tang and use strong opposing spring tension to lock the blade open or hold it firmly closed. To open the knife, both handles have to be rotated to assume a new position on the tang where the springs can once again supply opposing tension and lock the knife open.
The advantages: First, due to the considerable spring tension holding the handles closed, it’s very unlikely the knife will ever open inadvertently. Second, it requires the use of both hands to make the distinct movements required to rotate both handles. This is not a butterfly knife, gravity knife, flick knife or switchblade. It can’t be opened by a wrist snap, or any single-handed opening technique. It offers a significant margin of safety. Third, positive pressure on the lock from cutting and chopping strokes and negative pressure from sticking, digging or prying is absorbed equally by super strong opposing spring tension. Includes removable pocket clip.
