ASAP Technology from Buck® provides the ultimate in one-handed operation knives. To open, release the safety, then push the blade release ridge. After the blade starts opening, the assisted opening mechanism completes the blade opening and releases a ''liner lock'' to lock the blade open. To close, you simply push left on the front of the liner lock to release the lock, close the blade, and engage the safety on top of the handle. This two-stage action of Buck's ASAP Technology offers a higher level of safety than automatic knives by preventing more unintended blade openings.
Enjoy the easy one-handed operation provided by Buck®'s assisted opening ASAP Technology in a compact and capable folding knife with the Rush® Folding Knife. The Rush's 2-1/2'' drop point 420HC stainless steel blade and lightweight anodized aluminum skeleton frame handle deliver strength, durability, and a cutting edge you can count on task after task. Stainless steel belt clip helps you keep this handy knife easily accessible on your belt or pocket. ASAP Technology makes opening the blade a breeze and gives you the added security of a safety lock when the blade is closed. Lightweight 2.4 oz knife measures 3-3/4'' when closed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SassyRed It's American made by Buck. Enough said!
I bought this knife six or seven years ago, and carry/use and abuse it every day. I've used it as a hammer, dropped it SEVERAL times, left it outside in the weather, field dressed wild game with it, cut A LOT of very thick cardboard with it a couple of times a week, and use it for countless other things. After all of the abuse, the snap continues to stay tight, and it holds a GREAT edge! The ASAP feature is also great for one-handed operation! By far the best money I've spent in a long time! Of course, when I bought mine, they were only $35; but it has proved to be well worth at least twice that!

Depends on what you are rating. This is a very good compact pocket knife with a modern functional design. Assisted opening technology is a very popular option that more knife makers are offering every day. And the handle is lightweight, but very strong and sturdy.
