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.

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!
Nice one! I've been using mine hard since my folks bought it for my birthday in November (I told them about the preorder when it first came out; since the Smokejumper, at the time, was out of stock). In fact, harder than my standard 110s. The edge has held up very well, and I quite like the drop point blade. Even though I rarely use it (the 110LT pocket-carries much better than a brass/ebony one); I quite like the sheath as well. Buck's nylon sheath (despite being made in China) is one of the better ones out there; and I'm a big fan of the blue on black color scheme. Now I just wish Buck could figure out how to make it over here.

SK Blades is coming out with a 112LT Slim version of the Smokejumper and Shield--I can't wait! Been wanting an American made, one-hand opening clip-carry folder, and it suits the bill quite well.

Thanks for info and review. There was mention of a 2 blade 301 exclusive from SKBlades as well and I'm keeping an eye out for that one.

I agree about Buck's nylon sheaths. I use one for my 112 and I like it a lot. Much less obtrusive than the leather sheaths and it fits my 112 perfectly. I think the snap closure makes it one of the best. Many nylon sheaths have Velcro closures and it's kind of hard to find a good one with a snap closure. I bought 2 extras for my 112 just in case they stop offering them in the future.

Hey Rick. What about the t-shirts? Don't we get to see them?

Well heck yes! I don't have my own pics yet but I'm sure Mike wouldn't mind if I used his.

Got this 112 slim on the way through Denver last week. It'll go good with my 110 Smokejumper.

::ds:: Nice! I have the 110 and love it. I almost bought the 112 version at Cabelas last week but got diverted by a shotgun.

I just picked these up not too long ago. I like the old Camillus barlows. :)

Those are awful nice knives. I'd have to carry one of them, probably both!

Here's my new Bucks a Vantage, because I didn't have a flipper and a 112 Slim with a drop point blade and pocket clip. I think I'll like the drop point blade. Question, the blade on the 112 is marked 044. What is the significance of that? FWIW it came from Copper and Clad.

Pretty sure that "044" is a serial number. From what I've seen, drop points, in standard steel, have been typically exclusive to them.

Normally, when Tractor Supply puts out Christmas knives in clam-packs, I wait until they're discounted heavily, typically close to, or right after Christmas. However, this set of a 285 Bantam BLW and 283 Nano Bantam had both been put out just this week. $20 for the set. My local knife shop, on the other hand, $20 for the 285, $15 for the 283. Couldn't help bringing it home with me the minute I saw it. Been wanting a 285 for quite some time, and I'm impressed; a lot. Already put it to use today. It's lightweight, but a good-sized knife. Just the right size. I may end up giving my great-aunt the 283. I already have an orange camo one, and she's been looking for a small pocketknife for her purse.

Appreciate the info! I didn't realize that. Nice score on your Bucks as well! Kind of addictive aren't they? Edit to add: I went to Copper & Clads website and sure enough they numbered the first 100 of production! I got #44!

The 103 is from 2003.
