With a dedication to providing the highest performance products of uncompromising quality, Buck Knives is pleased to introduce the 040 Onset. Further bolstering an exceptional 2021 product class, the introduction of this brand new mid-year 2021 entrant continues Buck’s commitment to best-in-class value and craftsmanship.
Sporting an S45VN Bos heat treated flat grind blade, ultra-smooth ball bearing flipper, G10 top scale, and removable belt clip, this framelock knife elevates the everyday carry game. Featuring a 3 3/8” drop point blade with an overall closed length of 4 7/8” and Rockwell hardness of 59-61, the Onset is built for the rigors of daily use, offering superior edge retention and rock-solid toughness.
The 040 Onset was developed through Buck’s commitment to continually expand and enhance their EDC (everyday carry) lineup. Building on nearly 120 years of knife-making expertise to develop and optimize products, the Onset is Buck’s newest EDC in an ever-expanding class that bears the trusted Buck name.
“Buck’s legacy of crafting iconic products, some over a half-century in continuous production, makes it easy to forget we have a state-of-the-art facility in which we design, develop, and test our products,” said Chris Bourassa, Director of Marketing and Product Development. “The Onset is an exciting addition to our everyday carry class featuring a material and technical combination that’s tough to beat. Built, tested, and refined, every hand-edged and hand sharpened 040 Onset is proudly made right here in Post Falls, Idaho.”
Made in the USA and backed by Buck’s uncompromising Forever Warranty, the Onset will be available in August. MSRP: $180.
