The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
Well, at least one thing went right in 2020, USPS just delivered this 1989 Buck #301 Stockman in Jigged Buck Bone. When I see one of these, especially in a model I don't have in BB, I bend backwards to see if I can snag it. Fortunately the seller was someone I purchased from before on the bay, and he had added a "Make An Offer" link to the listing, so I went for it. It was marked $45 BIN, which really isn't that bad, so I offered $35, he came back with $42, and I ended up getting it for $40 + shipping. I had paid much more than that for the #312 Mini Trapper, #314 Trapper & #333 California Toothpick I have in Buck Bone, so I'm pleased with the transaction, (does anyone have a 1989-1990 SMKW catalog that might tell me which models came in Buck Bone?). This one seems to be in an unused condition, and was advertised as "never sharpened", which appears to be true. Due to it being so late in the year I suppose this will be my final 2020 knife purchase, because with Christmas, and other recent knife purchases, I am basically broke so I think that will be true. I'm not even sure what other models came in Buck Bone, so I will be on the lookout for others. So this is basically a 30 year old knife, my how time flies!
Till next time, cheers to you and yours, have a great Christmas despite Covid and it's restrictions.
