After TOPS Knives and Buck created the award winning 095 CSAR-T it was an easy choice to create additional options for this line of knives. Basically, this folder is a reduced weight version of the CSAR-T Pro Folder. This slimline version is the perfect lightweight field carry knife. It features a 420HC blade designed for functionality and strength. The oversized thumb stud allows for ambidextrous and easy one-hand opening; even when wearing gloves. The blade contains slots for wire bending and other small tasks. The 090 CSAR-T utilizes Buck's industry-leading smooth opening mechanism, which is both very quick and effortlessly smooth. The stainless steel frame handles with rubber handle scales provide a durable and secure non-slip grip with an integrated hex bit adapter. For those seeking a hard core tactical knife with a little less bulk, this is the knife for you. Made in U.S.A.
