Whats your newest addition to your Buck family and why?

Hoyt Buck produced the first Buck Knife in 1902. Hoyt and his son Al moved to San Diego and set up shop as H.H. Buck & Son in 1947. Al Buck revolutionized the knife industry in 1964 with the infamous Model 110 Folding Hunter. The company's innovative history and attention to quality have made for many great collectible knives.

I think ebony handles are the standard handles now (and moving forward) for everywhere the standard Buck 110 is sold (Buck still makes many special runs with different types of blade steels and other handle materials). I bought this one at a big box outdoor store (Gander Outdoors) - the Buck 110 is stocked at all the other outdoor stores as well, however Academy and Cabelas didn't yet have ones with the ebony handles (still working through their own warehouse stock I would guess). I've been looking since January when I saw the Shot Show video from Buck Knives and the guitar company (forgot their name). OH

The ebony looks really good. I would like to see that on a 301.

Let’s hope ebony will be offered as Buck retools the 300 family of pocketknives over the next few years. OH

Stopped for an hour Sunday afternoon to fish for Shad on the Cashie River (flows into the Roanoke) at Windsor. Didn't catch anything but my new Buck 110 ebony was ready - on my hip (can you geezers see the sheath on my hip??) My daughter Kristin even gave it a try, she doesn't like fishing unless a fish is jerking her line! I did cut Kristin's chicken sandwich in half at lunchtime with my knife (once my wife was convinced it was clean!) OH

OH, I bet Kristin does get excited when there is a fish jerkin on her line. Always pleasant to meet some of the family. ::handshake::

Had to go to the grocery store so I stopped across the street at the Gander Outdoors & picked up one of these Buck 110's in ebony.

Aw, jeez. I posted that from my phone so I'm going to blame the spelling mistakes on the phone but the 301/110 mistake is all on me. Not sure where that came from but maybe one more whack up side my brain cage will help get my mind right. ::dang:: The post has been edited, thanks to my little helper elves.
