    Couple of knives I picked up at the antique mall today. Buck 110 50th Anniversary, perfect shape, factory sharp. Unfortunately it came with a nylon sheath, not leather. But, it was less than a new 110 at Walmart.
    The other one is an old handmade knife, I’m guessing from a file. Wood handle, full length tang. I like the slight curve of the grip.

    Nice 110. Tang stamp is interesting. That other one is way cool too. Nice finds.

    Good find on the Buck. For the first time since the company started a Buck is not running things.

    The fixed blade has very much a Bob Dozier style. If you look closely I think the hand scales are micarta. I think I detect a bit of the weave of the linen fabric. Take a close look and let me know if I'm correct. A great deal of thought was put into shaping the grip.

    You’re probably right on the micarta. It does have a funny grain to it.

    Those are pretty cool finds.
    Mention was made of buck family not in charge of buck anymore. That saddens me greatly.

    CJ is still the CEO and CoB. He hired Lane Tobiassen to be president.

    The 50th 110 was so cool, I'm not sure exact number of variations but they had at least 4 quarterly changes that year. Result was you never knew what you may get design wise.
