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.

These three landed in my mailbox a few weeks ago. All are 1986 or earlier production.

I got this one at a flea market a while ago. I'm not usually interested in modern knives but I couldn't resist this one, and now that I have it I can't quit play... er inspecting it. One question though: the number on the sheath (276) doesn't match the number on the knife(279), Is that normal or do I need to look for another sheath? Thanks

The same knife only the 276 has a gut hook blade. So as to looking for another sheath, I guess that depends on how anal you are. (No offense intended)

Jerry; no offence taken. I think the question indicates that I am a bit anal anyway. The sheath I have fits like a glove so I won't get too excited about finding one with the right number. thanks

Here is a recent addition and a good why. In the late 70's to early 80's I was stationed aboard the USS Camden, one of only 2 ships stationed out of the Puget Sound Navel Shipyard in Bremerton, WA. I was a troubled kid from a Westen PA steel town and the Navy and WA state helped change that. Heading out to muster in the morning and seeing Rainer in the distance I knew the world was OK.

Been awhile since I've added a Buck to my collection - this Buck 110 Folding Hunter is the last pre-dot version (72-74). OH

Thanks Dogg, I've cleaned it up a bit since I took the picture yesterday. Your son-in-law is lucky to have you for a father-in-law! OH

You'll do it Dogg - he's gotta regular Daniel Boone for a FIL, so he'll learn. I'm working on my daughter's fiance (when I get the chance), he's a rural boy from NW Georgia but never hunted outside of small game. Took him duck hunting last season, but more to come this season. OH
Ps I gave him a Buck 110 "50th Anniversary" Folding Hunter last Christmas.

OH, there is one version between yours and the two dots. It has the 5th Version blade but the larger sintered frame like the two dots have. Take a look at the relative position of the rear handle pin. Also, the rear bolster is slightly different; the top of the bolster where it meets the wood is a little thicker.

Thanks for the advanced info on the pre-dot Buck 110 Bert. One more for me to keep an eye open for now! OH

The 883 2 blade with a modified drop point and a serrated sheep's foot is my daily carry as it's solid aluminum body is indestructible and it will cut nearly anything. My "dress carry" is the 831 Marksman Tanto.
