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.

Nice elk handles Tony, I was quite pleased with the two I bought (elk different on both). Snap very good on both.

Welcome back to the Buck 110/Ebony handle club Jerry - sure adds excitement back to the standard Buck 110 to have ebony handles once again. OH

I strongly prefer a two piece box with a leather pouch. That way I have the option of storing it as new but still handling it. On the other hand, there might be too little moister inside the blister pack to oxidize the bolsters.

Thanks gents! Dogg, don’t know, my scale is a cheap mechanical (spring) China made fishing scale that I’ve thrown away. I think about 18 lbs. Had a thick 10-3/4” beard and 1-3/16” right spur. I’m guessing a 3 year old bird. OH

In a box of odd ball knives and small parts at a small rural gun show I found a barely used 2010 Buck 342. Since I was unfamiliar with 342s I'll describe it for other members who do not follow modern Buck one hand opening knives. It's 3 5/8" closed, has a broad 2 1/2" blade with a small amount of drop, a liner lock, a pocket clip, a thumb hole and a small nub of a flipper. It is so small that the thumb hole is difficult to use without first opening the blade half way with the flipper. Since the flipper only opens it that far perhaps Buck intended for it to be opened with two actions. That's not fast but works. It's easy enough to close one handed.

I seldom even look at knives that open with one hand so there had to be something special to get me to buy it. Simple. I had not previously owned a knife with an S30V blade and it was $15.

Part of a used lot. The starting bid was $1 with $10 shipping. The bid ended up going to $15, presumably because of this model. The rest were cheap multitools that were junk, and a banged up Chinese LB-7. The tip is broken, and there's no other blades. I'll soon be buying the model without the slipjoint clip point blade, since those go for $60 with blades included. That will give me some blades should I decide to tote this model.

That's a nice Buck. I'd send it back for their spa treatment and they'll return it looking like a new knife. I've got a 110 with them now for a reblade and the cost is only $10. Buck is a great company that stands behind their products.

I wonder if they could simply reprofile it? Because I'm sure they no longer have blades for the Selector. But I do have an older 112 with a badly worn and beat up blade I'd planned to simply sharpen up and carry, but it was a bigger mess than I thought (the already worn blade had a big chip in it that I didn't notice when I bought it, and it's about a 1/4 inch short), so it's gonna have to go to Buck.

Received this just a few days ago. It is only the second Buck I've ever bought and the first was 30 years ago. The materials used are routine but it appears to be a perfectly useable knife. The fit is quite good; the finish fair. I'll begin EDCing this tomorrow for a while.
