The Tempest is a full-size, assisted-opening knife with unique skeleton handle construction and Bucks patented ASAP Technology¢ - an advanced-design spring mechanism that provides easy, safe blade release. This Buck Tempest Knife has a spear point blade made of 13C28 stainless steel. It features dual thumb studs and ASAP assist for ambidextrous one hand opening. The skeletonized, dark grey, anodized, aluminum handle has a blade release ridge, cam lock safety, and liner lock. A stainless steel pocket clip is mounted for tip-up carry.
I bought this knife about 8 years ago not from this sight but none the less this knife hits all expectations. The design is slick and clean, the handle is sturdy but fairly light. The spring action is smooth and fast. I've opened the knife probably over 10k times and it is still going. The blade is a good quality metal and keeps and edge very well. Only poor thing about it is it's an open frame and dirt gets in easy
