Whats your newest addition to your Buck family and why?

Hoyt Buck produced the first Buck Knife in 1902. Hoyt and his son Al moved to San Diego and set up shop as H.H. Buck & Son in 1947. Al Buck revolutionized the knife industry in 1964 with the infamous Model 110 Folding Hunter. The company's innovative history and attention to quality have made for many great collectible knives.

Ha!! You are exactly right, you DID warn me!! I admit it's all my fault, at least that's what my mother used to tell me, so I may as well fess up. Thanks again, I always do exactly what I'm told not to do, and so glad I did it again this time!!

Picked this one up today at a local "indoor garage sale" at the local fairgrounds. Needs a couple of batteries(2032 button cells)to make the flashlight function again which will probably cost me more than I paid for the knife($5).Couldn't find a listing for one of these;is it a discontinued model? Buck 777T.

Just catching up on some Buck's I've added in the last month. Two 300 series pocketknives from the late Camillus era at Buck and a 1972 built 103 Skinner that came in Friday's mail. OH

Just got these two Buck 301 Stockman knives in the mail today. I wanted the 301 Black Valox as a backup for my 301 Black Valox made in 1993, and the Rosewood Dymondwood version for dress.

Both are outstanding quality. What a great product.

Latest finds. 1988 #301 Stockman in Yellow Sawcut Delrin, (Buck-build), & '72-'86 #315 Yachtsman NIB w/papers, (Camillus-build). Why? The #301 to honor the birth year of a recently lost stepson, the #315 because I didn't have that version, (bolsterless), in my collection yet, (plus it came with that perfectly pristine box & papers). Though 28-40 years old both are in perfect unused condition.

Baykeeper, I like the rigging knife. I have a similar knife that's a Kabar. I used it alot when I was building power lines. Here is my latest. A 112 with nickle silver bolsters. I am planning to modify by adding the Damascus blade and some fancy handles. I haven't figured what would look best yet. Add a cross draw sheath and edc this one. Anyone have any ideas on what handle material would look good with the Damascus blade?

Can't wait to see that #112 when you are done with it. I have a couple of knives I would like to re-handle but just haven't found that round tuit yet.
Your Kabar was probably made by Camillus, most marlin spikes made in the US in that era under various brands including my #315 and your Kabar, were clones of the tried & true Camillus #96 Rigging Knife. I have one of those too, and also had a Kabar for a time, but it was a little rough so I later sold it to concentrate on the Bucks.

I tried differnt rigging knives on that job. The Kabar out performed the others. Just taking my time. Haven't figured out the handles. I'm stumped. I think mammoth tooth would look good. But still thinking there might be something else that will go with the lines in the Damascus better. I'm thinking a thumb stud added to the blade would be a good addition. It would have to match also.

Hmmm, how about some highly figured exotic hardwoods to go with that Damascus, (of course carbon fiber/Kevlar also comes to mind.)? There are certainly a bunch of suitable choices out there. I have some stabilized Ovangkl and Bubinga I want to use for knife handles one of these days. Seems to me a light, highly grained Rosewood, (like Bubinga), would look good with Damascus, but that's just me; I like wood. Of course I also like Genuine Stag, so I guess I'm stumped too!!

I think you might be on to something with that bubinga. I have knives with spalted maple. I dont think that would fit cosmetically. I have thought about carbon fiber but I like the natural look. I have some iron wood its too plain. I looked at some ivory slabs at a show but it didnt have enough lines in it. I will see about that bubinga. Maybe I can find some to suit me. Thanks

Also look for Sapele, Boxelder, (burl), or even some of the exotic Walnuts. All can be found highly figured with variable color, and are hard enough to serve as scales. There are some exotic hardwood suppliers online, if I run across any I bookmarked I'll share.
