"Good morning Marvin, that sounds great ! I carried a 110 for many years and put through a lot of abuse and its blade stayed amazingly tight ! They are very solid knives . As far as the Dremel tool , well , I don't believe you can go wrong…"
"Ron also if you notice on my knife the wood scales have 2 brass pins and 1 stainless pin. I read the opinion of a collector that believes this dates these knives in the 74-75 years.
Have a weekend ,
"Steve , I was surprised at how solid the knife seems for an old knife . The blade opens and closes and locks in place with no wiggle at all . To me it looks like it was put up new. My pics are not to clear but the blade edge looks like it just…"
"Looks like '67 to '72 for when it was made.

"An excellent find and score!
Your knife is pre-1972. No dots on the tang stamp, that I can see.
The two small cover/scale pins makes it pre-1977/1978, if memory serves, since Buck went to 3 cover/scale pins around 1978 or 1979. (The rocker/lock bar…"
"Hello Marvin, I dont know if you own another Buck 110 or this is your first, but you now have a Great , extremely durable , old knife ! There are a million and one ways to make it look and feel new again , as Ron said , a good soap and water bath to…"

I've used knives all my life for fishing and hunting and always have a pocket…"

Favorite Kind of Knives
Pocket and Hunting knives .
Outdoorsman, Like hunting and fishing . Really just buy knives as I need them for hunting and fishing . Everyone needs a pocket knife a tool that is so handy. You know just how much you need it when you forget it at home or lose it .
I've won a few auctions lately that have had some nice knives and some hard to find out how old out unique they are so it has sparked my interest in collecting .
