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.

Dogg, here in the eastern zone of NC we have the longest rifle season in the state (and a bow hunter can hunt in all three seasons with their bow). Here are the 2012 seasons in the eastern zone.
Archery: SEP 8 - SEP 28
Muzzleloader: SEP 29 - OCT 12
Gun: OCT 13 - JAN 1

Dogg, found this one today in a box of Case knives tang dated from 1979 - 1981; antique dealer said they all came from one estate. I am guessing this Buck 309 is from the same era as the Case knives (a month or so back I got a Buck 303 from this same estate). All of the knives are unused, but have some wear marks from being in drawers or boxes without any packaging to preserve them. This 309 is from the pre-dated Buck era as made by Camillus. OH

Thanks guys, it is a nicely made but really small knife (3") - it would be perfect in dress slacks for carry while at church, weddings, in a dress uniform, etc. I am building a small assortment of sizes from the Camillus-era, I have these so far: 309, 303, 301, 321, 317. Now I need a Camillus-era Buck that is longer than the 301 and shorter than the 317 - I want to do a "stair-step" photo/display of Camillus-era Bucks - for looks I prefer the flat grind blades too.

Hey 300B, funny you mention that knife - sat here last night and did ebay and other searches and I came up with several 307 "Wrangler" auctions. I will have something soon. Thanks, OH

I now work in a pawn shop and these two caught my eye. Scored them both for a whopping 15 dollars. The fixed blade is a model 120 and dates from 1988 and the model 110 is as new and has a 2012 mark.
I bought them because I like bowies and the 120 has that style. As for the 110, I recollected tht I had never had one! Here they are now!

Uh, yeah it was. I had them priced out and ready to put on display and asked him what kinda deal we could make on them. He asked me what we had in them. I looked it up and we had 5 in the 120 and 8.50 in the 110. He said give me 15 and we'll call it good. Ya gotta love a boss like that!

Sounds like a great boss to me. I hope the Security and Exchange Commission doesn't learn of your insider trading - you could be in big trouble - of course you could get to know Bernie Madoff! Very nice Buck knives and a terrific deal - nice snag! OH

I'm with you Dogg; Beechtree's 102 is a classy knife - the wood handle with brass hardware is hard to beat for good looks.
