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.

A minor boneheaded OCD mistake. I occasionally browse Etsy for stuff on my knife and multitool list. I saw this Buck Tool Bucklite one for $27, and bought it without hardly thinking. It's rusted, and the right handle is floppy where it pivots at the pliers. I've whacked it a few times with a ball-peen hammer and it hadn't helped. For $8 more, I could have had a near-mint one. I'm thinking I'll buy that one, and save this one for parts if I can't fix it. If I can--beater user.

Been there, done that.
At least it was only $27.

Yeah Cody, you don't have an exclusive on bonehead impulse purchases. Ask me how I know. ::facepalm::

This is my most recent and as near as I can tell it's a 433 Juno though the model isn't marked, I guess because it was a commemorative.

It came from a firearms and related estate sale where for some reason no one was bidding on the knives. I got it and another folder (a Myerco Stinray Aus-8) for $1, though to be fair I didn't know what they were until after I bought them since I hadn't really looked closely.

Prior to that one, my most recent was this 1994 Buck Camo Crosslock that I also picked up at an estate sale.

I've done that too, it's a symptom of Buck Fever for which there is no cure.

Got a buck vantage in Damasteel.

Anyone know what the factory lock up is on these? Mine is about 60-65%....maybe more.

Your knife has strikingly good looks. Well photographed in black and white makes for a very fine presentation. ::tu::

Great looking burl, Buckeye has such a distinctive pattern to it and is hard as nails.

Thank you for the compliments fellas.

Quick Steel, it never occurred to me that my photos appear black and white but now that you mentioned it, I see what you mean. Those were taken using a light box that I got a few weeks ago and they are actually color photos. I took another pic yesterday of my small Custom Shop collection which includes an orange knife. Same camera settings as my pics above.

Railsplitter, you took a color picture and my eyes translated it as black and white. What should that tell me about my eyes? ::hmm::
