After reading West9319's thread I thought a Buck thread for pics and stories might be nice.

I found this 1992 Buck 110 Double Dash non finger grove at the flea market with the original leather sheath.

Cool knife man. When I was a kid I found a knife very similar to that buried in the dirt. Kept it for years and eventually gave it to a friend who really liked it. I don't know any specifics on it, just that it cleaned up real nice for being found buried in the dirt. Was a great quality knife.

I'm an ol Buck and original Schrade/Imperial guy. Most of the new knives don't do much for me.

My early 1970's 110 was stolen when my vehicle was broken into. I really miss that knife as it had been with me to many great places. I've replaced it with a Buck 110 Custom, but even that beauty does not bring the feeling of that old 110. I truly hope that whomever stole my knife himself with it and the cut gets infected with an antibiotic resistance bacteria.

I broke the blade on my first 110 from the 70's. Bought another that looks alot like OP's. Now they're both lost in storage someplace and I carry my Spiderco's.

I have a 110 too (who doesn't) but it never gets pocket time due to its weight and bulkiness. My favorite Buck knife is the Vantage. S30V steel with a beautiful stonewash finish and you gotta love the A-TACS camo handle too. Awesome knife.

Here's mine:

My Grandmother bought me a 119 when I was 12. That was 42 years ago and that knife looks as good as it did the day I got it.

The first knife I ever got was a buck lite around 84 I was 9 years old and me and my brother had each got one at the local true value hardware store .....I wish I still had that thing

That looks like the 110 I used to have. Someone stole it out of my truck. :mad: It was really solid and I loved it. But I don't know if I would buy another one due to it's weight. Still, that's an awesome flea market find!

Well the "Double Dash" from the OP got a new home today. Passed it along to the next generation. My daughter's boyfriend had his Eagle Scout honor court today. Daughter wanted to give him a special gift. Great kid so off it went to a new home. I think his dad is gonna steal it when he heads off to college.:D


Found a 1969-1970 Buck103 at the flea market in almost perfect condition. Let my uncle take it and he sent it off to Buck for a spa treatment and custom re-edging. Anyone who has one pre 1980 knows what I'm talking about. The angle on that blade with that hard steel is a pain to get the right edge. Will post pics when it comes back.

Got a Buck 112 from a fellow Calgunner and I just couldn't leave it stock.

I saw my brothers Buck and I forgot that I used to own one years and years ago. I forgot about the fit and finish of these beauties.

Saw a 50th anniversary Buck for sale at Sports Chalet and grabbed it. It's too cumbersome for EDC vs my Spyderco, so it sits in my car. Going to transfer it to a kit bag.

I bought my first buck 110 in 1982 on my way to Montana to hunt Elk. That knife has been with me on all my trip since then. I thought my ex took it along with a lot of other stuff when she moved two years ago. So i bought another one. A few months later I found my original 110 in a bag that i was throwing away !!!! Glad to find my old friend !!!

I have what I believe is very old model 503 somewhere that I've had since I was 10 or 11. I stopped carrying it due to lack of a clip, buried love to find it again. It would be a great first knife for my son. I also have a model 119 fixed blade that I keep razor sharp and ready for backpacking and bugging out. I'll have to find my folder and get a pic...

This thread has made me nostalgic since I now carry Sog and Kershaw. Makes me want a Buck! How is quality these days?

As good as ever if not better. I stick with the USA made ones but their warranty is just as good on the Mall Ninja ones made in China for Walmart etc..

Here's a 119 Special I've been meaning to post up since I rescued her from the flea market back in November.

I believe it a 81-86 group 4 with Dymondwood handles.

Few light marks on the pommel and guard. Dosent look to have ever been sharpend. The handle is almost perfect just some light handling marks in the clear coat.

I believe thats also the original sheath that came with it.

Needs a day at the spa to bring her back to all her glory.

Make sure to make the pilgrimage to Coeur d'Alene IDAHO to see the factory. Tours are top notch - and the company store is great. They even have cheap seconds ... sometimes!

I've got an early 80's buck somewhere that was my Dad's. Trying to think of where it is at the moment.

Knew a couple of guys that used to work at the Buck factory in Santee when I was growing up too. If you asked they would take your knives to work and sharpen them for you and that back sharp as razors......I have a scar down the middle of my right thumb to prove it! Sometimes kids and really sharp knives don't mix LOL

Either of those In the box Kalingas have micarta handles? Can't quite tell. The one in front looks like it has the Dymonwood handle.

I've had this so long I can't tell you when I bought it! I can tell you this much this thing has clean plenty of game and fish. I thought I lost but I was going through some boxes (just for the heck of it) and found it! I was really-really happy!

Love it when that happens. I've found a few knives like that I hadn't seen since the 1980's.

I have a Buck folder with three blades my mom gave me when I graduated from Cub Scouts into Boy Scouts. I still have it 37 yrs later and it looks perfect.

The 110s will go and go and go.
I have referred to them as the "standard psycho issue" as I noticed
often mentioned in stabbing news articles back in the eighties.
They seemed compelled to report they were Bucks. LOL
Assault Bucks! RUN!

Bucks are cool, an American classic, but I have always found them to be a bit too hard. I would never have thought that possible, but they are a ***** to resharpen and the first time I went to use one to pop open one of the old style oil cans the tip broke right off.
Never had that happen with a Schrade

A 110c (top) that I found lying in the road one day recently (all dinged up from being driven over) and an older 110 that I bought in 1967 or 68. Note the subtle differences in the blades and handles. 4 rivet vs 3 rivet too.

Just got this last night. The Buck 119 Special Brahma. The blade is standard Buck stainless with a black coating. The sheath is mainly nylon with a leather front cover. I really like stacked leather but missed out on the special edition stacked leather 119 that was made a few years ago. I think I will get some oil and smooth/polish the stacked leather some.

Its grip is comfortable and feels good. I was thinking about getting a standard 119 leather sheath for it but its handle is just a little to large. I guess I could get the sheath wet and force it closed for a little expansion.
