The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
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…Continue
Went over to the eldest for lunch and not only did he feed me
he gave me a little something.
A Bastion Braza EDC folder that he got from Battle Box.
D2 steel with stainless handles and ball bearings.
Weighs a ton but a really nice knife.…Continue
The mail lady ran today and left a little package.
I think I may have to seek help.
First is a new Kershaw I thought was mighty good looking.
Then I picked up a Rough Rider because it had my initials on it.…Continue
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…Continue
I just got the mail and lo and behold I have prizes in the mail.
Ok not prizes because I bought them but something new in
First is a Winchester Sunfish with the buffalo shield. Why did I order it?
I didn't have one. Here is its picture.…Continue

My first post here. I sell a wide variety of items on eBay for our local non-profit thrift store (White Elephant). A Cattaragus knife was donated and I'm having trouble finding out what type of knife it is (see photograph). I found one exactly like it on eBay and the seller thought it was made from a file but the "grooves" on it are more like slight ridges, not cutting grooves as on a file. I'm hoping that someone will know what type of Cattaragus knife this is. Any information will be…Continue
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…Continue

Well, I was gonna wait until another delivery happens to post here, but this one arrived first and I like it so much I thought I'd go ahead and post it today. Craftsman 95068 Stockman, similar size as a Buck #303 Cadet, (3 3/8" closed for the Buck, 3 1/2" for this Craftsman). I have been wanting a good one of these for awhile, and this one is in splendid condition, tight & sharp full blades, no wiggle, little to no usage visible, a good deep cleaning and…Continue
For the past couple of years, I have only been buying razors, quite a few razors actually, and I have had no problem having these delivered in the mail. As I am now an impoverished pensioner I can't afford to collect knives and razors so I hadn't kept up with our new knife purchasing laws I had been aware that the legislation was changing of course but had let it slip from my mind.
This Summer I hope to be able to spend a good deal of time whittling in my shed or in the garden. My…Continue
HI ALL, GLAD TO HAVE FOUND THIS SITE. I HAVE A SMALL COLLECTION OF ALL TYPES OF KNIVES AND BAYONETS. . I CAME ACROSS THIS ONE RECENTLY, IT IS AN VERY OLD KITCHEN CARVER,M IT IS STAMPED JACTON, I SUPPOSE IT COULD BE JACION, BUT OTHERWISE IT HAS A LOGO WHICH LOOKS LIKE A PEAR ON IT'S SIDE!!! DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR TO ANYBODY. LET ME KNOW BECAUSE I WOULD LIKE TO PUT A HISTORY AND AGE ON IT AND PUT IT FOR SALE. THANKS IN ADVANCE. DN
Another Ebay find for just over $20, a 2019 Buck 110 Slim Select in new condition. I needed this like a hole in the head but could not resist the price. My daily carry is a 112 Slim Select Pro and I love it dearly, so I figured I may as well have a set. This has Buck's new indestructible handle material in Blue which is very comfortable in the hand. It has the usual 420hc blade, (same as the standard 110), and a belt clip. That belt clip is the best clip I have ever used on…Continue

Another thrift store find, an old "Forgecraft Hi Carbon" kitchen knife, made from old sawmill band saw blades with maple handle; paid $7 for it.. Turns out that Forgecraft is a popular chef's knife and there is a thriving trade in used ones on Kitchen Knife Forums. Apparently the brand was owned by Washington Forge and they stopped using the brand name in the 60's, so this knife is at least that old. Also apparently there is a tang stamp chart somewhere but I haven't found it yet, it will…Continue
Thanks to a heads up from Jan I just snagged this custom little Buck #305 Lancer from Greg Holmes at Trestle Pines Knives. It is lightly used but is otherwise in excellent condition. Whoever did the customizing did a fantastic job, the transition from bolster to handle is as perfect as a factory job, and the handle itself is smooth as factory smooth bone. Greg also added a bit of class to the transaction by including a nifty little zipper pouch; well done Greg.
This is my first truly…Continue
Here is something you don't see that often, a '72-'86 Buck #307 Wrangler in Yellow Sawcut Delrin made by Camillus for Buck. I've seen this handle color in post '86 Buck-made knives, but this is the first one of this color and vintage that I've seen for sale, so I couldn't resist, (I have seen other models of this era in Yellow Delrin but this was the first yellow #307 I've seen). I have Yellow Delrin knives of models #301, (post "86), #303, (also post '86), #332, #331 Barlows & #322…Continue
I've been offline awhile, sorry about that, but naturally one of the first things I do when back is to bid on a pocket knife. Won the bidding on this old Remington Jack here on IKC, it has great jigged bone handles and it is in decent condition considering how sharpened-down the blades are,(though still very usable). The seller Bryan took better photos than I did, so I'll post those here instead of mine. It is a very solid knife, even after being well-used and oft-sharpened. I would rate the…Continue
I checked our PO Box again today and there was nothing.
Your follow up about the calendar got me thinking. I got caught last year with a Cafe press knife calendar.
I ordered one ( not from you guys but from elsewhere) in October of 2018 and it never turned up. I bought it via Paypal and ended up with a refund but it was disappointing.
Hopefully, a different outcome for this year.
All the best to you all for the holiday season.
I truly appreciate all who welcomed me to your outstanding group. I am grateful for your acceptance of my application for membership and will strive to live up to the high standards of the family.
Warm regards, Alan Riffle
