Help identiry this relic knife

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

Michael's Knife

Nothing fancy or special, but it was made in 2014 which was the year my grandson Michael was born. Been watching for awhile but finally a 2014 came up for sale. I have a knife for each kid in my life made the year of their birth, they will of course get them one day but I'm keeping them for awhile so I can carry and use them. To me the most precious knife I own is the fixed blade Kinfolks K380 my dad bought on his 18th birthday in 1926, he used it a lot before he gave it to me, and it having…See More

"Syd, I'm with you on both counts.  Killing for killing's sake is simply wrong.  And I'm a 112 fan myself -- I like the 110, but it's too popular to feel special.  Granted, the 110 has been around ALL my life,…"

"First off, an Elephant's Toe by Case is a cool knife to be sure, but unless it was found in Abe Lincoln's pocket when he died it very likely is not  a realistic price, it's a price that an "expert" wants to get for it.…"

New Knives During Quarantine

Here are a couple of Bucks that arrived today, two #112 Slim Selects, my new favorite for EDC, (I carry a #112 Slim Pro every day). This is a wonderful model for EDC, strong, affordable and nearly indestructible. The deep carry pocket clip is the best pocket clip I've ever used, and I have a few Case knives & others with pocket clips, not one of those come close to being as well designed, easy to use and secure as these; they are reversible too. Slip one of these into a back pocket and it…See More

On this 2020 Memorial Day weekend there is little else to do, so I decided to try and get all my knives into one room, I figured why have them if I'm going to keep them in a box in the closet. One of these days I want to get or make a few new display cases, more permanent ones made to fit the knives better, (like a store display-type box), but for now what I have will have to do. First is the big box which contains most of my Buck collection and includes every model number of the 300 Series…

This was worth the wait, my daughter gave me a special cane, and I found an oldie!

   Just received a 1967-1972 Buck #112 Ranger in pretty good condition. Nothing extra special about it other than those were my high school years, ('67-'71), and my first year in college, (1972). I have another version of this model, the #112 Slim Pro, which I have carried every day since I got it, so I wanted the "regular" version too because this is the perfect size knife to carry for every day use, (IMHO). It also came with the old style low hanging leather sheath, which…
