You're probably the biggest enabler ever, c'mon man! I hadn't seen the "unique" options, cool upgrade for guys who've got to have a buck but want a little more.
You say that like it is a bad thing.
Thanks for that info . I did not see it at walmart, but I will soon find out if the price difference is the sheath material . I will probably make a sheath for it so that does not really matter to me .
The 110 is a great American classic and one of my favorite Bucks. The 112 is also a great option but a bit small for my hand.
Don't forget about their factory made automatics now
I got what I thought was a smoken deal on the large and small Buck Spitfire several years ago on sale. My 110 with nylon sheath was, iirc, was about $20 cheaper on sale. Sometimes you stumble upon good deals.
Ditto @hso. If I had to pick the most influential enabler, it be him. He's a sly one.
I also recently started looking at building a custom Spitfire on Bucks site with the upgraded blade material and G10 scales.
My 200+ mile roundtrip is over and I am the proud owner of a Buck 110 . It is the no finger groove model with leather sheath , I have no clue how I made it to 59 years old without one . Thanks for all the insight . I just signed up for the Buck e-mail list , now I need to design a custom rig . While shopping I lucked into a couple pounds of powder also , a great day for sure . I was going to wear the buck as soon as we gout out of the store , but waited to enjoy it when I got home . I am amazed of how many Buck 110s I see on people in movies and shows now that I am paying attention . I saw one ranch hand that wore his open in a cross draw sheath behind his back, being a fixed blade guy that really put me over the edge . I have knives that cost 10 times this, but for some reason this one really speaks to me ...and I have only been wearing it 10 minutes.
Excellent to hear . That was about the time all my buddies had them on their belts , or in their pocket . I carried a Puukko , always liked things that were not the norm . Had no idea what I was missing .
At least one.
A Buck 110 is probably the best value
in an American made locking blade knife
that can be bought today.
Even the newest newly made 110 will
last a lifetime with minimal care.
Occasionally I get the itch and carry my buck 192. It's actually my favorite, but less convenient for daily carry.
I have an old buck 426 I got in blade broken condition. It's essentially a plastic handled 110. I sent it back to buck and they replaced the blade with a new 110 blade. It's very handy to carry as a spare when on the field.
I pulled the trigger tonight and ordered a nickel bolstered, satin S30V drop point blade, elk handles. Been wanting one, should be sweet!
That is the one I would like to get , Please post your thoughts of it and pics when you get it . I am now a big fan of these knives , I look for any excuse to use it ,when it's not on my hip it's on my bench open and ready to go . I find I just pick it up without even knowing why , just feels good in the hand .
I will post pics! It will take up to 8 weeks to get so I have to be patient lol. I made custom knives for 10 years so normally I wouldn't get excited about a Buck but I know they have the best heat treat there is and the 110 and 119 models are just iconic. Can't wait!
