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've noticed Buck's traditional USA-made "pocket knife" line is now down to just the 301 and 303, the Solitaire apparently just got discontinued not too long ago. Stinks that the variety it once had is no longer there; but neither is the quality--the 301 I looked over at the local knife store had horrible snap; so weak you'd think it was worn out. That Moose/Muskrat is a great score! Seems that's one of the lesser-seen ones.

Good pickups gents!

Cody, as I have read on another Buck Knives website (and verified by Jeff H. from Buck Knives) the company is in the process of retooling the 300 series. Whenever they get them on the market I'm sure they will be worth the wait, but unless you find some NOS knives the 300 line is getting mighty thin. Seems that Bass Pro Shops still has plenty of the 310 Whittlers (a SFO for them). The one I have is pretty snappy (from about 9 years ago). OH

Nice knife Rick - welcome to the Buck fixed blade club. I took my new Buck 212 fishing yesterday, short size wears like a 102, but the 212 has the full size handle I prefer. Going to be a good supplement to my 121 Fisherman- between the two they’ll be a great fishing duo. Nice knife! OH

Saw this little Buck 310 the other day for $20 shipped and I like whittlers so I thought I'd give it a try. I think it is a 2,000.

Here is my most recent Buck, #315 Yachtsman. The one I have in my collection is really in bad shape, (cracked handles, non locking spike, etc), finally found a good deal on a replacement. This one looks well used but is fully functional, full bladed and will clean up nicely after a visit to the "spa". Now I have both versions of this model in my collection, a NIB version without bolsters and this one. Now if I could only find the elusive versions with different colored handles, or the few that came in bone.
