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

Gone But Back With Bucks Of Course!

Been away for awhile, just got busy musically lately so have been a bit distracted with that after a 10 year absence, but of course collecting knives is still a passion, nothing has changed there. I have even lost track of all the knives I have gotten since my last post, but here are the knives I most recently got, there were a few others but I will post them when I get the chance. I have had a "thing" lately with Buck 310 Whittlers, (love 'em because they are rare and cool), and though they…See More

"Buck make this style/type of traditional knife in their factory until after 1986, before that the entire 300 Series line was made first by Schrade Cutlery for Buck, and from 1972-1986 by Camillus Cutlery. In 1986 Buck moved that series production to…"

Just a quickie!

Found this Camillus-made Buck #333 Toothpick SFO on the bay in a very poorly listed and photographed listing, watched it and ended up getting it for about half of what I paid for the other one I already had. Oh well, the more the better I guess.See More

Here we go again, the first photo shows just what arrived today, but there are more coming, (egads!!). Two Buck #112 Slim Selects, (in different colors so I can color coordinate. Doesn't everybody do that?), a new Buck offering, a #891 Spear Point fixed blade with 5160 Spring Steel blade coated with ceramic Cerakote for durability and rust prevention, and comes with hand stitched tactical sheath. I don't usually buy fixed blades, but I have been more and more interested in them lately. I…

It's Sawcut Delrin Day!!

Posted on March 26, 2021 at 14:54 0 Comments

Just got my second vaccine shot so gave myself permission to go on a binge. These arrived today: US made Schrade Old Timer #50T with very nice sawcut Delrin handles and original sheath, (3 3/4" closed), the sawcut handles are what attracted me, have never seen it on a lockblade. Also received a really nice Colonial lockblade, (do not know the model number), also with sawcut Delrin, SS blade, (4" closed), with original sheath. Bought this one because it is the first Colonial lockblade I have…
