My Buck,"accumulation"......

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.

My Buck,"accumulation"......

Post by knife7knut » Mon Jul 06, 2020 5:17 pm

Over the past 40 or so years I have accumulated a number of Buck knives;both USA and "Pacific Rim" models.My own personal preference for use is a model 186 sans the pocket clip and takedown tool.All the beef of a 110 and half the weight. My biggest issue with the 110 was it's handle heaviness if used for prolonged periods of time.
Anyway here they are for better or worse.It will take a few posts so please be patient.

That is the Buck 186 Titan.Only manufactured for a couple of years likely because of poor sales.Not because it was a poor knife but because it was about three times the price of a 110.The frame was made of titanium and featured a detachable pocket clip also made of titanium.It also was able to be dis-assembled using a small hex wrench that attached to the side opposite the clip for cleaning.In the kit was a plastic sleeve to slide over the blade to protect from cuts when dis-assembling.
If you didn't want to use the pocket clip or have the tool attached,shorter screws were supplied with the knife to allow for a smooth handle.
I bought mine I think in 1986 or 87 and they were $65 at the time. Later they made another titanium handled knife(Model 560)that could not be dis-assembled.One of them was just on e-Bay and re-listed a couple times because the price wasn't met.I think the auction topped at around $130.

As an aside what cracked me up about the 110 I have that is still in the packaging is the illustration showing the blade open and the nail nick on the wrong side of the blade! ::dang::
