    three dot 110


    ADVERTISEMENT
    I just picked up a NIB three dot 110. That was the last year for 440C wasn't it?

    I'm not positive that 3 dots were only made for one year, but the 4 dot mark signified a change in blade steel.

    That is my understanding as well; changed to 425 with the 4 dot in 1981 I think.

    Seems to be sort of a grey area. I figure it must be either 440C or 425M.

    imafritz, I will post a picture when I get it in hand, but it's just a plain old everyday looking 110. Just happened on it this morning for the price of a Wally world 110. I already had one, but it's used and no box.

    I may be wrong, and would have to check with my 110 cheat sheet at home, but I bellieve the three dot had 425 steel.

    Here's a link to the cheat sheet I have, but I've been told that the 3 and 4 dot data wasn't necessarily correct.

    Yes, the Buck 110 three dot was the last year with 440C steel blade.

    I have one also,,, they are not that common due to manuf. for only 1 or possibly 2 years. This was 1980-82 in the older data charts from about 10 years ago.

    The four dot is definitely changed to 425M steel. This is listed as approx. 1982-85. The four dot was made with both the square edge frame and the newer rounded edges frame.

    I see more four dot knives for sale than the three dots, it may be different in your location.

    I agree w/ you FG on all points.Even George Stinzel said at the 20yr. reunion and I think its in the dvd's as well. "That the 3 dots were mfg. into 1981."
    I see more 4 dots as well out here. This does substantiate the thinking, that there were more 4 dots mfg. than 3 dots. DM

    I figgered you must not have it yet. We'll always take pics I'm esp interested because just yesterday I was lamenting that I had no NIB or mint older 110's and I need one. Havent really seen any nib in the bay and supposed mint have been so-so.

    I just happened to be checking when it popped up on Ebay. The seller actually listed as having two of them BIN @ $24.99 each plus $4.95 shipping. When I asked about a combined shipping price, she realized she had listed wrong. I was going to jump on both of them but there was actually only one.

    Has anyone ever seen a three dot 110 with CHAMPION on the knife, and the sheath? On the sheath it will be where you would normally see BUCK on the flap. HL

    I'am keeping it in the safe. I have at least two other three dots and a hand of two dots. As you can see I really do like the 440 blade knives. HL
