"Thanks Jan. I lucked out, I missed a NIB version the same day this one popped up, so I made sure I got this one. These appear for sale even less frequently than some of the limited editions, so I felt like I had to go for it, (that's my story…"
"Thanks Charles! Yup, I'm tickled for sure, these are hard to find let alone find in decent condition. This one will definitely be retired to my 300 Series display box to preserve it, hope my grandson appreciates it one day."
"Here it is, the Buck that started a legend, the very first 300 Series knife! 1966 Model #301 Stockman built by Schrade. They also produced the #303 Cadets that year, and both models sported an attractive set of lined bolsters that year only, no…"
"How about a "Box 'O Bucks" photo? Found this old cutlery box at a thrift store, fixed it up and put it to good use. It now contains every Buck 300 Series knife made for Buck by Camillus from 1972-1986, and all of the Camillus-made…"
"Ok, the unveiling!
Buck #331 Granddaddy Barlow in Jigged Bone, one of the rarest Bucks out there. SFO made for SMKW by Camillus in 1999. They were made in black & yellow Delrin as shown above, and this the much rarer Jigged Bone.
Believe it or…"
"While waiting for the Barlow shown above to arrive I received this little gem. Unused 1993 Buck #303 Cadet. What is so special about this common little knife? 1993 was the year my daughter was born and I have been looking for a knife made that year…"
"Well, I've been offline for a month recovering from a medical issue, so glad to be back on IKC and glad to share a new find. I borrowed this photo from the seller, but was so excited about finding this I didn't want to wait for the post…"
"And the binge rolls on, finally found the mate to my yellow Barlow.
Buck #332 Barlow in Black Sawcut Delrin, 1995 SFO for SMKW. This one is even better from a collecting point of view as it came NIB w/papers, a rare find indeed, (and…"
"Here I go again. 1990 Buck #305 Clipper in Smooth Blue Delrin, the only blue Buck I have, (or have even seen). Found this on SMKW's Ebay store, happy that Mr. Pipes keeps these things around in a drawer for others to enjoy down the road. I…"
"Here we go again. With these Buck SFO's it's a matter of buying when you see them. They are so scarce and come up for sale so rarely good timing is seldom a luxury I get to enjoy. As usual this came up at an inopportune time, right when I…"
That's the truth John, my wife allows me the barn! I know its a pain to repost some of those but if you get a chance as I say it is really impressive group. It always great to meet other collectors here and see what they collect!
