The start of an 112 obsession

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.

Nice collection.

I'd been a 110 guy for years, but after getting a 112, I grew fond of the slightly more compact, yet very functional, 112.

You need to get one with shedua wood scales. I think Buck only made those for a year or two. Very attractive wood.

And it is a nice one. Mine has a stain and scuff mark on the scale from the snap on the sheath.

1 Dog: Here's a c.1978 2 dot 112. I carry it tuna fishing in the Atlantic. Keeps a good edge and is tough as a boot. Great knife. I prefer the size over the 110, Good luck with your collection. Happy New Year. J.O.

Nice collection you've got going there, 1 Dog. I'm a 112 guy myself.

My first 112 came to me as a Christmas present from my wife in 1988. It’s still in use, and I treasure it. I’ve added a few more over the years. Not seen in the photo is a recent acquisition - a very early 112 - which I recently sent back to Buck for an “S.P.A”. Next to my first one, my favorite is the “Indigo Blue” scales…

Very nice collection. I tend to favor the Drop Point blade models but I only have a few. I was fortunate enough to snag one of the Indigo Blue models as well. Awesome knife!
