Buck 081 Fixed Hunter

Postby joesskankshack » Sun Aug 04, 2019 2:06 am

Can anyone tell me about this knife? It appears to be a 081 fixed hunter; however, I cannot find anything out about it online. All I see is the 101 fixed hunter.

that is a serial number-not a pattern number.

That's a great looking knife. I'm a huge 110 fan and one of those is on my short list of knife purchases.

Gotcha. Do all 101 have serial numbers?

That looks like the style of serial number used on the Copper & Clad SFO Bucks. C&C numbers the first 100, then no serial number after that. Buck Knives doesn't serial number standard issue knives, and it's spotty on Custom Shop knives. Pretty sure none of my SK Blades SFO Bucks have serial numbers - my "educated guess" is a C&C Buck 101.

Does that lead to any extra value to that?

I think that is still currently offered by C&C, you should be able to check their website and see what they’re going for. OH

I see one that is similar, but the handle is different. I was able to find one on eBay that seemed to be the same, which gave me a price point.
Thanks for the help
