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.

My 310 has replaced my Case peanut as a watch pocket knife in the hot and humid summer
That's a good deal for a 310, they aren't that common and usually go for much more than a Jackson. The 310 is one of my fave EDC's, good score!

I've bought knives from Sander's Knives before, great selection of collectible treasures. That's where I got my #322 Buck Congress in yellow. I haven't perused their store lately, mainly because I'm too broke and the likelihood I'd find something I want is very high. It's like if I see it I MUST have it so avoiding looking is my only hope to avoid bankruptcy.

Picked this 2003 403 Eagle up off the Bay last week. Been looking for one of these for a long time. Got lucky on a "best offer". ::groove::

Baykeeper, I know what you mean - I limit myself nowadays (more knives than I could give away in a lifetime, much less use up!)

Nice Buck 403, that is not a Buck Knife you see often. OH

Thanks, Garddog & OH...

Yeah, OH...these are pretty scarce, even w/only 2003 made. (according to BCCI 2003 cataloge) This one is 1258 / 2003. People tend to hold on to these kinds of knives. I think the only reason I was fortunate enough to get this one is because the person selling it was into 'other' stuff to sell and this was the only knife they had. Probably wanted to get it off their hands quickly due to them not being 'into' knives. They may not have known exactly what they were selling either. I've seen these sell for well over $200.00 and up. I gave $155.00 for it. It originally sold for $174.00 in 2003. Well worth it to me to add to the "collection." ::nod::

Here's my "new" 112 from the great EBay store. I got a great price on It and it's in pretty good condition. It's a 2 dot so that puts it in production in late 70's early 80's? Well my question is about the nail nick. I looked on the bay and discovered that some have them and some don't, even within this production period. This one doesn't have it and I kind of like it. Was there any reason why some do and some don't?

Pre-1986 704 Maverick. A few scratches here and there but overall great condition. Same size as my 703 above but with only one blade.
