Post Falls, ID -(Ammoland.com)- After unveiling an updated version of the Alpha Crosslock at the beginning of this year, the developers at Buck have created yet another version—this time with an emphasis on the trail rider, rancher or general outdoorsmen.
The new version, the Crosslock Hoofpick ( http://tiny.cc/mxt0mx ) , now offers a hoof pick and modified spear point blade and is an extremely important tool for any horse owner. The 3 inch hoof pick is ideal for cleaning packed in dirt, mud, or debris from hooves and maintaining the health of a horse’s feet.
The textured handle has added features for an easy grip, with or without gloves and in wet conditions. Weighing in at a total weight of only 4 ounces, the Crosslock Hoofpick is durable yet lightweight for everyday carry. It’s easily packed in its nylon sheath, but also includes a belt clip for pocket carry.
Although it is efficient and effective as a ranch knife, this tool isn't meant for just the stable. The 3 inch, partially-serrated, spear point blade is perfect for everyday use and features one-hand opening and closing. The spear point and hoof pick are both constructed of 420HC steel for excellent edge retention and corrosion resistance.
“The original Crosslock has been a top performer for us since it was first introduced,” said Stephanie Young, Marketing and Communications Manager for Buck Knives. “We anticipate the Crosslock Hoofpick will be a great addition to our new Xtreme category of outdoor knives.”
Handle patterns were also updated and the new Crosslock Hoofpick is offered in red or brown anodized aluminum handle and comes with a brown nylon sheath.
Proudly made in the USA and backed by Buck’s Forever Warranty, the Crosslock Hoofpick has an MSRP of $90. The Crosslock Hoofpick will be available June 15, 2014.
