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.

Byrd, that’s a real clean example of a two dot Buck 112 - nice pickup! OH

Minty!! Doesn't appear to have seen much use at all.

Kinda wonder why Buck added the nail nick on later ones--honestly, I think it looks better without; and besides, it's unneeded.

Actually it's not minty...what you see is several hours of polishing with diamond stones and finer grits of paper. The blade was in bad shape from improper sharpening. I cleaned it up quite a bit to become a "user".

I like what you did with it. It’s headed towards being a flat grind. And the sharpening choil was well executed. It will be a fine user for sure.

Found this 110 last week in a pawn shop, mixed in with some Bear knives. No sheath/holster. Don't think it's ever been sharpened.

Why? Cause the price was right.

Have a blessed day,

Leon

Received this in the mail today. I didn't have a 'new' stockman, so decided to go all "Merry Christmas" on myself. :D These are stock photos from BuckKnives site. It's the 301 Buck of the Month for December. I'm quite well pleased

My newest Buck. A 117 braved the weather to come to my house. This could become my favorite EDC. It's a baby 119. Buck sharp.
