This knife was found buried on the side of a hill at the site of an elementary school in Big Sur, CA; it was given to me by the principal because he knew that I collected knives. It obviously was…Continue

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

"Looking good, very good! I have been meaning to get a current Buck family portrait, but it's so many knives, (30+ haven't counted for awhile), so little time to find them and arrange them."

Looked in the mirror and realized I had a face again!!

No more mask mandates, so it's nice to actually see folks faces again isn't it?However, collecting didn't stop and here are a couple of new ones. A Craftsman 95068 Stockman Buck clone and a Camillus Buck clone. I have been looking for a 300 Series look-alike Camillus for years, and though I had seen photos this is the first I've seen that looked exactly like the Buck 300 Series knives made by Camillus up to 1986. The Craftsman looks more like a Schrade knife to me, mainly from it's thin…See More

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

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.

I'm out of control!

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…
