Buck 110 knife

my work rewards site has some points with my name on them and they just started carrying the Buck line of knives.

I'm thinking about getting a Buck 110 folder, putting a couple years on it and giving it to my oldest son in a few years.

Anyone have/use this knife? It's been a LONG time since I had a Buck - the one I had was the large sheath knife (model 119 i think) and it's lost someplace in all the JUNK at my parents house.

How's the steel...as I remember this knife and Buck knives in general - they take an edge pretty quickly, and hold it fairly well, are tightly built and rugged - and particularly heavy. I'm fairly certain this will do the deed with deer - I have not gotten around to making my custom knife from http://www.knifekits.com yet and in the end...this one is a freebie to me.

Re: Buck 110 knife

I have 3 of them that I use for deer skinning. I also have a couple of the Buck Folding 422 flo. orange knives for my back pack. I like them all!

Re: Buck 110 knife

I bought my Buck 110 back in 1971 while on a bear hunt trip in New Hampshire. I used this knife hard through the years and it never failed me even after splitting deer pelvises. It kept an edge and only ever needed afew strokes on the butcher steel to bring it back razor sharp. After 20 some years of fairly constant use both at my job and hunting it was farly rough looking; the blade worn down and tip broken, the wood handles chipped and the brass end bolster all banged up from using it as hammer. I took a chance and send it back to the factory with a letter explaining how this knife was my constant companion in everyday life and hunting trips, and if possible could they fix or replace the blade. About a month later I got the knife back and couldn't believe my eyes, it almost looked like new. They replaced the blade, smoothed out the handles and buffed the bolesters so that not even a scratch showed anymore. All this was done for FREE by them accompanied by a nice letter. I still have this knife on my side when I venture outside and wouldn't trade it for anything. They are great knives and you will not be disappointed!

Re: Buck 110 knife

That particular knife Im sure is one of the most common in a PA hunters pack. If you decide to get one Im sure you will be pleased. I personally prefer combo knifes with a saw but I know many people love this knife

Re: Buck 110 knife

I like my 110 Buck folder but it's the hardest knife I have to get an edge on.

I bought this sharpener at a Sports show in Sacramento when I lived in CA and it will put an edge on any knife like you would not believe....easy too. It has doubled in price though since I got mine 20 years ago. Sharpens them ole Buck knives so you can shave with them!

Re: Buck 110 knife

thanks for the input guys. Click...bought. I hope to put a little blood on it over the next few years and hand it down to Nickolas. Jackson is still only 18mos so he's got a ways to go before I start thinking about his legacy hand-me-downs.

Re: Buck 110 knife

I've had mine since my ol' man gave it to me before my first deer hunting trip @ 12 years old. I have other knifes also, and there's fancier stuff out there that I would like to have. But I don't go hunting without my ol 110. Can't explain it, just like its supposed to be there and something just won't let me bring another one with me instead.

You can't go wrong with a Buck 110, I've used one for year and will keep on using it,no other knife is needed.

Re: Buck 110 knife



i opted for the new fancy finger grooved one. should be here in a couple days. Stinks that they have to show this as fringe bennies at full retail value on my taxes :shrug:

Still though - can't complain about the price, especially if it lasts. I should have gotten two...er...3. then i'd have Jacks for when he is ready too
Knowing me i'd lose the two I don't carry though.
