I just ordered one of these Buck Whittler's from Bass Pro Shops. I tried to copy their picture, but could only get a postage stamp size to download (thus the link). I will post a good digital shot when I receive the knife - to include the cedar box. The #309 isn't a whittler pattern and there is no whittler on Buck's website that I can find, so I assume this is a special run for Bass Pro Shops. At any rate it looked nice, I've wanted to add a whittler pattern to my collection, and it's a USA made Buck!

I got one of those. Pretty nice little knife. I like mine quite a bit. Is that the one
that is a 310 but labeled a 309? Or vise versa?

The 309 and 310 have a linked past. Take a 309, add a third blade, the slanted tip whittler blade beside the pen blade and you have the 310 Whittler model. It has often been offered in the wooden box. Bass Pro is the only seller at this time, others carried it in the past. Sometimes you get a 309 stamped clip blade and sometimes a 310 stamped clip. Its the third blade that gives this knife its name......300Bucks

Trey, I was going to answer you with an "I don't know", but 300 BUCKS has just explained it to me (and you). Thanks for the pictures and explanation. I will have to wait and see what number is stamped on my blade (the picture on the Bass Pro website has 309 on the blade). I will photograph mine and post it upon arrival. I looked around e-bay last night and found only one (a new one) that comes in the yellow/black paper box for $28.00 plus S/H, but no wooden box. I also checked Buck's factory website, but couldn't find one listed as a current offering. OH

My Buck Whittler came yesterday; it's a 309 with a 2010 manufacturing mark. It came in a yellow and black paperboard box with a wooden display box - opens from the oposite end from the one that 300bucks displayed. It is a very nice little knife - smaller than the other Whittlers I have seen (3") and has three springs, none that taper; the blades are very close fitted. Glad I bought this one.

I love whittlers, and now that I've seen this I gotta have a 310,

Good thing I need to order some other stuff from Bass Pro, otherwise I'd get in trouble for yet another knife package :mrgreen:
