The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
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.

I'm right there with you and your father in law, a knife is a tool and meant to be used as a tool. My most prized possession is the 1926 Kinfolks fixed blade I inherited from my father, I intend to pass it on to the next generation. I have other hand tools my father used, and those are precious to me also, it's nice knowing that a tool was handled and appreciated by my ancestors.

My father-in-law was a man of the old school. A knife was a tool to be used and if or when
it broke you just replaced it.
I believe I have another Buck stockman that was his and I believe a black handled Frontier
that he used.
When he retired I gave him a Uncle Henry sllimline stockman to carry and I believe its
somewhere among my knives.
