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.

Thanks, Byrd.

It had resided in its leather sheath for quite some time, judging from the verdi gris on the brass and the light rust on the blade.
(I wish I had taken a “before” pic.)

I have given the blade a little clean up with 0000 steel wool, followed by some Flitz on a polishing cloth.

I’m not sure yet if I want to polish the brass or leave it with the years of patina and blood stains.

Polish it and let all the patina be from your own use. That's what I'd do...

Here's a four dot I received from an old journeyman I apprenticed for when I first got in the trade.I allways loved the fishing scene on the blade.

Very nice Buck 110 Dogg, I like the fishing scene too. OH

That's sweet! I have a soft spot for 110's. What's your background? Are those spent cartridges hammered into a stump?

We have these scattered in the hunting area with a North arrow so the young hunter will be familiar with the area.

::ds:: Great find! I carried a 110 for years. This summer I got my first 112 and am becoming a convert. That one is in fine condition. Use it proudly. You'll like the finger grooves.

I'll not use it. I just add it to my small collection 112.

I received a package today from Mike (XX Case XX). I knew the package was coming but I thought it contained 2 t-shirts and nothing else.

The package was stuffed full of other goodies as well as the t-shirts and this sweet Buck 110 was one of them. It's an SKBlades Exclusive and they call it "The Shield". Great Buck knife and the sheath is even super cool!
