A new acquisition. I collect Camillus-made Buck 300 series knives, and though I already have a CC-made 317, (the equivalent to this knife), I thought it would be nice to have both the Buck and…Continue

1990 Buck #314 Buckbone Trapper

Posted on November 16, 2017 at 15:04 6 Comments

Having recently endured a cervical vertebrectomy, (removal of discs and bone, replaced with bone grafts & SS plates leaving my spinal cord exposed until the grafts grow in), I wondered if the surgeon had cut out the part of me that addictively purchases collectible pocket knives? I got my answer today with the arrival of a 1990 Buck #314 Buckbone Trapper. My neck seems to be healing up well, but the urge to practice retail therapy remains. I already have a #312 Buckbone Mini Trapper from…

It never ends!!

Even though I have been having some medical issues lately, my desire, (ie; addiction), to acquire new and different slipjoints continues unabated. Though I was unable to sit at the computer till recently, (had an epidural last week so I am able to sit up a little better now), I still managed to find a couple of knives that were in my opinion "must haves".

A friend in the BCCI, (Buck Collectors Club), suggested I begin looking for Camillus "clones" of the 300 Series knives…

Stopped at the mini mart just down the street today, and when I came out I was approached by what I thought was a panhandler. However, instead of asking for spare change the guy asked if I wanted to buy a knife!? He handed me this Cold Steel Counter Point II and said, "I'll take $5 for it". I wasn't sure exactly how much this was worth being an import, but I figured $5 was a good deal nonetheless. Not one to look a gift horse in the mouth I handed him a fiver, got in my car and…

Cold Steel Irish Blackhorn Walking Stick

Posted on June 16, 2017 at 19:25 14 Comments

Well, I didn't expect to find this, especially around here.

As stated in the title this is a Cold Steel Irish Blackhorn Walking Stick, (not to be confused with their Irish Blackthorn Shillelagh which has longer knobby things on the stick and sells for less). Smokey Mountain Knife Works sells these for $46.99, (when in stock), which is the reason I didn't buy one when I visited the store, the price was just a little high for me that day, (though…
