    Buck 311 Trapper?


    ADVERTISEMENT
    I just picked up a few older Buck knives and have a pretty nice trapper pattern 311 in this batch. Did Buck have a model name for the 311? I just know it by the pattern.
    If Buck did use model names would anyone know how I could find a list of what they were called.
    Thanks for any information.

    I thought there was a sticky on here with that info. Chris Lappe has the info. I found it via Google search "Buck Slipjoint data" If you can't find it I can reproduce the list here.

    Thanks for the lead. I was able to find a good list of Old Timer and Uncle Henry knives some time ago. I know that Buck has nicknames for knives. Cadet, Lancer, ect. I have even found a few listed for sale and was able to piece a few of the discontinued models together such as the 317 Trailblazer. I did search the Buck Slip Joint data, and Buck knives slip joint data without any luck yet.
    If you do get a moment to post your list and it is not too much trouble I sure would appreciate it.

    The 311 was made by Camillus.

    Buck later introduced two in house Trappers, the 312 (Mini-Trapper) and the larger 314 (Trapper)

    Sometimes you will see the 311 called a "Slim Line" or "Slim" Trapper, but in Buck catalogs, it was always just "Trapper".

    I started out collecting 303's and those are my favorites and recently started picking up a few 301's as well; however, I also recently decided to try to pick up one of each of these slippies but don't have them all quite yet. I'm betting that 300Bucks not only has one of each of these, but also has every variation of each as well. I'm sure he post a family photo in the near future.

    While it is the largest Trapper at 4 1/8" closed, in Buck catalogs it was always just "Trapper".

    Let me add. The last time I added it up. The 1966 to 1989 versions of the standard black scale 300 series was at 56 different knives. So you see my hesitation in saying, "Sure, I'll have that right up." 300Bucks
