    They're rather nice, aren't they.

    I keep having second thoughts; it's one of the first "proper" knives I bought myself.

    Re: Show us your buck knives !

    The first time I visited the US I saw a Frontiersman 124 in a Buck disply case in the shop selling Levis. I bought Levis, but always wished I had bought the 124 instead. At the time I thought it was just too big. Now I know it is too big for me, but it is a lovely knife none the less.

    So, for my own Bucks, I have the 119 (of course?) that is currently unused though from 2008. I bought it relatively recently after wanting one for years.

    There is the 110 (naturally?) from 1981-86 period and a 112 that I have used quite a bit.

    I have the 105 Pathfinder from 1988 that is a nice shape and size for all sorts of practical uses and although I have used it quite a bit, it is like new. I made a new sheath for it to replace the rather bulky flap-over pouch sheath it came with.

    And finally a Skinner 103 that I bought from someone who said it has been used for one or two gralloching jobs, but forgot to say it had also been used to dig holes in a tarmac road since it was made in 1990 and might have been run over a couple of times and probably left out in the rain for a month or so! It cleaned up OK and I do like it for rough stuff, though its thick, blunt-ended, wide and deep-bellied blade shape is perhaps not the best for fish filleting! It says "Why me, again?" when asked to do the impossible and afterwards I have to push the handle back into line (the black phenolic bit moves a little when really pushed hard - doubt if I'd get a replacement now though!) - it is one tough little bugger; a survivor - and the sheath has drunk lots of neatsfoot oil and shoe polish and is now reasonably usable.

    Great little post made me laugh

    The 103 skinner is not a fish fillet, its best for skinning small game.Buck do make fish fillet knives.

    The 124 is a big heavy knife especially the full tang versions. They keep their money so well and the older ones like below go through the roof !

    Re: Show us your buck knives !

    Just the three for me, and none as beautiful as those above, camera's out of action at the moment so pics from the 'net.

    Buck Nano Bantam


    Buck Omni Hunter 10pt



    Buck 288 Quickfire


    The Nano Bantam isn't bad for a small knife riveted together.

    The Omni is a brute of a knife, Very strong back-lock, it almost hurts to close it. It also feels cheap and it really wasn't.

    The 288 Quickfire is (for me) the best of the trio, quick is indeed the way to describe the deploying of the blade. It has a "safety catch" to stop it firing when you don't want it to. To wander off topic a bit, I've been using assisted opening knives for a few years, I never use the safety catches and I've never had one open in my pocket, extra bits to go wrong and extra cost is all they are for me. Back on topic the quickfire's back-lock is a lot easier to use than the one on the Omni. The angular lines of the knife are a lot more comfortable than they look and it feels a lot better than the other two.
    Blade steels are 420J2 on the Nano Bantam and 420HC on the Omni and the Quickfire and they are both up fine choices, the 420J2 sharpens easily and needs sharpening quite often, The 420HC is well up to standard and retains an edge well.

    I've only had one Buck knife; the Buck Vantage Pro. It was a good knife for most EDC tasks and good value for money. It was sold in the classifieds though. I did like the look of the Buck 112 with the finger grooves at one point.

    Yes, thanks. Indeed the 103 is probably the worst shape ever for filleting, but it chops up mackeral for rubby-dubby like there's no tomorrow and perversely I like to try it out for the wrong-ish tasks. That big belly reminded me of the Inuit ooloo (?) - well the half-round blade like the leather worker's knife - that they use for everything, including fish. No - the 103 was not a success.

    Now I really know I should have bought the 124

    Terrible shot,
    my irritation at the barely perceptible sideways blade play must have spoiled my concentration

    Only a tiny bit of play, but being used to spydies quality, it annoys.
