its warm here today so rather than move the western to the belt on my shorts. I chose to rotate in another knife early. The Buck 124. To me it stands alone in Bucks line up. Full length and full width tang. One of my favorites that I’ve carried before. It is surprisingly easy to carry for a big knife.

Some of you may remember this iconic Nocona boot add.

I had this sheath made from a factory 124 and 110 sheath.

Got up @ 03:00 and drove 80 miles to a sage grouse lek and watched them for two hours. Had my Randall 23 in Thuya burl on my hip in case there was some peanut butter or somethin' that needed dealing with.

Peppers for an omelette. The BUCK 124 is surprisingly good at slicing. The convex main grind is probably why.

A little backyard bushcraft showed my son how to make a quick tent stake.

Well it’s time to put the Western and The Buck 124 away. It was a good month. I still like both knives a lot.

The Western was never meant to be a high end knife, but it carried nice and did all I wanted it to do. Funny thing is I got random “nice knife” comments while carrying it. One at LLBean and again at TrueValue hardware store. I’ve never had this happen while just wearing a knife on my belt.

The 124 is at the top of the Buck line and it did not disappoint. I cut some little branches off the trunks of my apple trees with it, and it didn’t even slow down. The Western would sort of bend them over the Buck glided right through. I credit the hollow grind and the weight.

One nice thing about the Western I found I really like the pommel shape it is angled just right for my thumb.

This month I’m carrying a Buck 117 Brahma. The stock sheath is tactical I guess but just seems silly. I found these distressed leather sheaths to be much nicer. Buck used them on a limited edition these must have been extra.

I have been carrying this puppy around.

My sports jacket really doesn't accommodate it very well, but I carry it anyway.

Sweet! It’s legal here too. But it would drag on the ground if I wore it on my belt.
