A multi-purpose alternative to traditional hunting knives, the Pursuit Series fills the need for a mild-range hunting knife designed from the beginner to the experienced, serious hunter. Added detail was put into the design creating a comforable, non-slip profile, and strong lockbback dependable blades. Designed for excellent performance, the Folding Pursuit Large Guthook knife is a perfect field option.
Lockback folding knives have a mechanism that lock the blade in the open position, activated by opening the blade all the way. A lock back gets its name from a rocker (rocking lock bar) partially visible on top of the knife. Opening the blade causes the rocker to lock against the blade so it locks open. Pushing down on the rocker on top of the handle releses it and enables the user to close the blade. Lockbacks require two hand closing, though some are one hand openers.
