I have a few folders ("lock blades") including several Buck 110's from a few years ago. I still like the old Buck Special particularly with the leather sheath.

My lineup of Buck folders is pretty modest. From the left:
110, right off the rack at Fleet Farm.

Bantam 284, one of my favorite Bucks, USA, FRN handles with no liners, everything you need in an unobtrusive EDC, nothing you donít.

301 from the custom shop, 154CPM steel, full flat grind, long pulls, stag covers, no spey blade, the Bladeforums forum knife from a couple of years ago.

373 small stockman, nicely made little knife, even if it does come from that other place. By using three springs instead of two, Buck gets three blades into a slim knife without krinking.

389 Canoe, another one off the rack at Walmart. The corners of the tangs are hidden behind the upturned bolsters, making for a smooth worry stone in the pocket.

Here's mine. The first and last are my favorites, "found knives" the 112 in my yard by the highway with the lawn mower. The leather sheath was sliced beyond repair but not a scratch on the lucky knife, the other small one #303 found in a parking lot.

My two favorite Buck folders. The smaller one is what I carry at work where blades over two inches are not permitted.

You can guess which one was on my belt every day building "The Mouse" a new house (EPCOT). I think the other one was a gift from ???? Joe

I have a nasty scar on my left thumb, since childhood, courtesy of a bit of inattention in carving a bow nock and a Case Hammerhead.

I think theyíre beautiful. I hate them.

One 284 with Muddy Girl camo scales (wife's)
One 722 standard black
One 722 Custom Shop, red with black spacer, rivets and clip. The blade is S35VN steel. So it's Red, Black and Silver with Georgia Bulldogs engraved on the side.

Here is my folding Buck knife. I got this at a major gun shop in Brookeville, PA (19 miles north of Punxsutawney) that is unfortunately no longer in business. I've probably had it for 35 years or so. Not only was it a good outdoor knife, but it was also pretty good for cubing beef in the chili cookoffs. And no, I didn't get it for $2.

I have a 110 that's maybe 50 years old. My dog chewed up my sheath but I think I still have it. The sheath, not the dog. I'll dig it out and post a pitchur.

Is there any way to tell how old it is? I think I purchased it in the 60's or 70's but I honestly can't remember. Ones memory is the second thing that goes.

Edit. Just did a search and couldn't find it. Maybe tomorrow it will show up. Might be in my shed but it's dark and snaky out there now.

Below is my only Buck. Bought cheap at a local auction a while back. I lost a 501 a few years ago. One of two knives I've lost in my life.

Kaleb does excellent work. He recently repaired & restored two of my Schrade LB7 folding hunters, and also reprofiled the blade of a USMC bayonet that had been badly damaged. Quality work at reasonable rates, and well worth the wait.

Just one Buck here any longer. It is the old 110 folder I bought my father back in the mid 1970's as a birthday gift. It came back to me at his passing in 1984.

This 503 has a lot of character from use. I like it.

After my tour in 3d ID in Schweinfurt, returned stateside for Vietnamese language, (got pretty good with it), and Advisor school, three months at Bragg, NC. While there, bought a few knives at the PX, this Buck folder, which I used all the time, here doing my daily spark plug cleaning on our KW generator, ran it in the evenings. Also with Pop, our handyman, an old chap, spoke no English, but had worked for the Japanese in WWll, the French later, and now us. One day, came back from a day in the field, and Pop had eaten our pet cat.

I also bought a Puma White Hunter, which I later gave to my counterpart when I left, and recently replaced at the big knife store off I40 in Sevierville.

Also bought a Buck general, the longer sheeth knife, and then a custom sheath for it, wore it every where. But the folder was the most useful, took it also to Desert Storm. Some years ago, it had gotten a bit loose, so spoke with Buck, and they agreed to repair it with great care, so as not to buff out any nicks or scratches. Now it resides in my memorabilia cabinet. Been with me all over the world.

All the best, and stay safe. SF VET

I have a hard time keeping folders, they seem to grow legs. The 110 with the sharp bolsters has been around a long time.

I have a 317 just like that, which my grandfather gave to me 40 years ago. It's an odd knife - too big to be a folder without some sort of locking mechanism, in my opinion. It's like a giant pocketknife. I don't like it. But I do keep it in my carpentry tool box where I occasionally use it.

The 340 came in today. It was dull as a rock. But I was able to remedy that in short order.

Have a blessed day,

and one family photo.
