Buck Fixed Blades

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.

Ed, I had forgotten just how nice your Cherrywood handle collection of Buck 100 series was - those are beautiful - glad I stumbled across this thread again! OH

This is my one and only Buck fixed blade knife. A Buck 119 that I bought new in 2004. It does have the original sheath, just not pictured.

Thanks OH. I’ve always enjoyed your action shots cleaning animals. I don’t do enough of that.

The Cherrywood thing started because I needed a caper to complete my 100 series set. Buck put both the Caper and the Skinner on their web special page so I had to have them. Both high polish. They really go together. Then as they became available I bought each one.
I have a Cherrywood 212 on the way now.

I’m also working on a Stag set now but it is slow going. They just aren’t releasing new models with stag handles. Probably good for my bank account.

Nice 119 NWNY, you're on your way!

Yeah, the stag handled are tough, my only one is a 120 from the early 1980's. The Cherrywood series is a nice combination of red and and natural materials that really compliment the clean lines of the 100 series. OH

I'm glad this thread popped back up. I missed it the first time. Love seeing those Buck fixed blades. Thanks for sharing them guys. ::tu::

Here's a display I fixed up with some of my Buck fixed blade knives. I just might have to add one of those 117s. :wink:

Thats a nice display Phil. Definitely grab a 117. It’s a sweet knife. Not too big not too small. It fits perfectly between the 102 and 119.

I’ve been using a 212 for a couple of months now. Except for it’s sweeping grind it’s a great knife. I corrected mine by adding a wide but shallow sharpening choil. Which is a great place to strike a ferry rod.

Good mod on the choil Ed. Mine came today - standard model of 420HC stainless - very sharp out of the box and with a minimal leather sheath - USA made too. OH

Looks good Old Hunter. I need to get that one too. I did just get the Cherrywood version to go with that set.
