Welcome Home

Hi all,

 

Thought I'd start a new thread asking folks to show a Buck knife photo or two. I like just about anything made by Buck. But, am drawn to the Gold etch art knives and love stag handles.

This is kinda a tribute knife to celebrate the #110, and I think they are only available as special orders. This was one of the offerings of the BCCI Annual 2017 Club Knife this year, and I figured I deserved at least one custom knife, this was my choice.

I love this.

Thanks Eric, me too. I hate that I spent the money, but I love that I have it. I'll have to consider this my Christmas present to myself, and get used to eating rice and beans after paying for it.

Here is another Buck that I couldn't resist, mainly because it is a 1993 knife, the birth year of my daughter. Good 'ol #110 Folding Hunter in very good condition, sharp as a tack after a stropping with a very dark "stock" wood handle, (almost black, a result of age I suspect, probably Macassar Ebony Dymondwood; which is a fancy name for a hardwood laminate). I included a comparison photo with my #101 Custom Hunter to show how it was inspired entirely by the iconic #110, (and to show off that awesome swirly carbon fiber handle and the SS bolsters). I also included a Buck factory image of the non-custom variety of the #101 Hunter, as you can see that version, though obviously inspired by the #110, has only a single bolster; here is a link to that web page. Edit: I should mention that the "custom" version comes with a black sheath with a flap, (pictured earlier in this thread), while the "stock" version comes with a more traditional open top sheath, (also black leather). Personally I think I like the open sheath better, it would show off the spectacular handle material better, but since I will probably never carry the knife it isn't a deal breaker.

Nice Ted. I usually don't like very many non-traditional pocket knives, but I really like the look of those, especially the desert.

Hi Syd,

Thanks, I really enjoy collecting 110's also. The blades on the 426 and 110 are identical, I have seen a 426 with a 110 stamped blade.

All, (or most), of my Bucks Ted are part of a set, special editions or have family or other sentimental attachment to them, so I only carry/use them on special occasions or not at all. The only Buck I regularly carry and use is an "extra" #310 Whittler I carry in my front pocket, (extra meaning I have a better version in the "collection"). The three #110's I have all have special meaning to me so I seldom carry them, having a lightweight #110-sized knife with indestructible handles looks attractive to me as an EDC. Unfortunately I just checked Ebay and found a few #426's, none in camo, and I see their prices are pretty high, that surprises me but what do I know. (as 300bucks on AAPK tells me all the time).

Your's are beautiful, enjoy them.

Ok Ted, you made me do it, I saw your Bucklites above, got that glassy blank stare that collectors get when they fall for a knife and just HAD to have one!! This is my first #426, date stamped 1991. So far so good, feels great in the hand. I'll make this one a user as the handle is a bit scuffed, but I won't worry too much about damaging it. Also picked up a 1972-86 #313 Muskrat, (early version, probably pre '74 due to the model number being stamped on the pile side), and a 2003 #303 Cadet. Picked all of these up literally for a song, and these days getting a good deal on a knife always feels great no matter the vintage or model, (I'm easily amused). Ran all of them across a steel then stropped them, they all sharpened up nicely. Since I don't need them to fill a spot in my collection the #313 & #303 will probably be sold to finance my trip to the BCCI 30th Reunion in Post Falls in July, the #426 will just be kept and used. I will be keeping my eye out for the camo versions like shown above, but this one will do as a user for now.

Hi All,

Wow it's been a long time since I paid a visit to the site. Thank you to all for post photos of your fantastic Buck knives. not sure if the attached photos will work (got my fingers crossed).

Wow, beauties John, and welcome back to the thread.

Interesting how we were just talking about the popular but discontinued #426 Bucklite, which came with a #110 Folding Hunter blade that had been stamped with the model #426. In several posts earlier we were discussing about how cool that discontinued line was and how costy they were getting on ebay. However, just today I received an email from Buck touting their 2018 knives, and among them was the new "110 Folding Hunter LT", which has the same type of Valox handle as the Bucklites, (sans finger grooves), but with 110 stamped on the blade. Looks like Buck threw a new set of clothes on the 426 and gave it a proper name and model number, basically a #426 with 110 on the blade. Perhaps they will offer finger grooves in later reincarnations of the Bucklite line, but for now it looks like another knife I just MUST have.
