    Just fyi, I was at Cabelas today, they have the commemorative edition of the USA-made Buck 110 knife on clearance. Comes in a metal tin with a sheath and had the Cabelas logo on the blade but so what. Originally $49.99, clearance for $14.88! Great price for the classic knife everybody remembers. It's not tactical but it's a good handy blade.
    My store had lots of them, I bought a few for Christmas presents and a couple more for just in case.

    That's a heck of a deal, I have an older one I never carry but I'd still buy one at that price. The website shows them still being full price, so it might not be at all locations:confused:.

    I personally would not take a ton of Buck knives as a gift.
    Don't like 'em AT ALL!!

    Why does cabelas and basspro seem to sell this knife in the 50 plus range? I got mine at the local academy where the everday price is 27.99.

    The Buck 110 is just holy heck, heavy as your granny, but the quality for the $ is all there with good steel, maybe a super steel 40 years ago. I have no interest is its incredible fat heaviness, but even in its present configuration almost heirloom, dare I say? :uhoh:

    Hard to sharpen and the edge holding ability STINKS!
    I much prefer a Carbon steel Opinal!

    I do prefer carbon myself. Are you looking at a newer made one or a older model, as I thought Carbon was still an option.

    I don't think that BUCK has a Carbon steel offering.
    Several of my hunting buddies have trashed their Buck knives!
    Total garbage!

    The Buck 110 and 112 are still made in the US. That's why they make different flavor of ice creams I have a bunch of the new, improved black knives, but my favorite is still the big heavy buck 110 and 112 I have a AG Russell barlow in my front pocket but a stag handle 112 on my belt. I find them no harder to sharpen than any other modern stainless steel.

    What is your issue with buck knives? I'm not instigating a fight or anything it's just that I've had several of their knives and they were all perfectly serviceable.

    I have 2.
    One is pristene and was dads

    The other was given to me by an old timers widow. I wear it hunting, fishing, and camping. Which says something cause I probably have 5dozen knives in my collection.

    Wore a Buck 110 in a leather sheath all through High School. It was a different country then.

    Funny story, my Dad took both Buck and Case pocket knives with him to Vietnam. To this day he has nothing good to say about Case and still loves Buck since his Case rusted. I have tried to explain to him that the Buck was stainless and the Case was CV, and that Case makes a ton of stainless knives. However, his mind is made up, and he will never have another Case, even when I have offered him one. Personally, I love Case CV knives, and normally have a CV Sodbuster Jr. on me or nearby.

    Bucks were quite common in Viet Nam.

    Back in the early 70's, when I was in the Navy, just about every bosun's mate/deckie and most of us snipes had a Buck 110 on their belt. I picked a new one up about a year ago for "old time's sake" when wallyworld had them marked down. Still made in the USA and still a good working man's knife.

    Doc, you have me beat. I think I have less than 40 blades total. (Well, not counting a bag full of new ARKs.)

    The Buck 110 was a very good knife in it's day. I think there are better options for the money if paying full price for one. But at that price I'd buy another just to keep around.

    I still have a few and over the years literally wore a few out. Think I still have one new in the package from about 20 years ago. Never had a complaint with a Buck 110.

    I've used mine on a couple of hog hunts and it served well. And while I won't get into specifics I've even had it handy in a self defense situation.

    IIRC, they're all 420HC, a good steel when properly heat treated, made in Idaho now.

    Wal-Mart has them for that price as well.

    Bass Pro should be ashamed of it self for asking almost $50 dollars for the Buck 110!
    On sale no less..................

    Nothing against them but I just never was a Buck knives fan. I usually gravitated to Case, Gerber, Schrade, and the occasional Puma knife over the years.
