Looking for company dogg? Yep. I broke the tip off my Buck 055. I was repairing a chair for a neighbor and did something stupid (using my knife for a pry bar instead of grabbing a screwdriver). I had re-profiled the blade but it just wasn't the same so I recently sent it to Buck to get the blade replaced. They charge $10 for a blade replacement. It's not back yet.

I got the nerve and reprofiled the blade on the Quickfire ::shrug:: I wanted the tip a little beefier so here's what I got.

Looks to me like you did a good job, dogg. As long as you're happy, that's all that counts.

Yes, I like that drop-point Buck a lot. And why do you break knives? Because you use them. That's something to be proud of in this world. Just carrying a knife at all sets us apart, but heck, even us carriers mostly just use them to spread cream cheese on a bagel. So I'd say that Buck carries honorable scars, not that it is broken.

Here is a Buck 119 that I spotted in the bottom of my guides boat while duck hunting in Arkansas three weeks ago. I kicked some junk out of the way so I could sit down and there it was! Garddogg, I'm not so sure you didn't improve the design of that knife - Buck might be able to market that change as a new model.
