    New Buck 102 Woodsman


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Our 4-Grandchildren are visiting from Long Beach, CA and while taking them to an old-time gas station/general store combination to show them how things still are in the country, I spotted this Buck 102 Woodsman in the store's glass case and bought it on impulse. I don't know what I'll do with it just yet but will probably carry it inside a coat pocket or inside a fanny pack -- not on my belt or on a pack strap.





    For those of you that have one of these little knives, what do you use your's for?

    Just like a puppy...so cute you got to have it and when you get it home you wonder what the heck to do with it.

    It is a seriously good all round knife, small enough to not be a carry problem large enough for just about anything.

    Enjoy it. Preston

    Neat knife... but stay away from Bass Pro Shops - they have a cherrywood handled/brass fg & pommel version... it's too purdy to nastify! Next size up is the 105 Pathfinder - then the 119 Special. Of course, if you like the old Puma 'White Hunter' style of pregnant ended knives, take a sojourn off to the 103 Weirdo! Seriously, stay away from the 'BR' variants... they are too pretty to use!

    The 102 is a great little knife and is my go to fixed blade. I bet you will find yours really handy and comfortable to use/carry after a little while. I did.

    They are very cool little knives and work very well for cleaning trout and pan fish. If you can locate a sheath like mine, you can carry the 102 and a 501 (or medium trapper) in the same sheath. It makes a great little fishing or around the camp combo.

    IMO the 102 is about as good a Bird and Trout knife out there.

    I used to use mine for whitetail deer as well. Its a very well rounded knife. Great design!

    I love using my "BR" cocobola knives, and the cherrywoods too!! Half the fun is using a beautiful knife for what it was intended!

    Beautiful knives and pictures guys!!!

    Whether you use the folding version or fixed blade 102 I agree with Flatlander . DM

    The woodsman is a great knife for pan fish like brook trout. I have a very early forged one with an inverted BUCK stamp that I use as a letter opener now. I need another for field use, but I'm waiting for one with upgraded steel, or a new old stock 440C.

    P.S. I always wondered if the 110 was based on the 102 or 105, if they were thinking of a folding version of one of these two knives. Does anyone from Buck know if this was the inspiration for the 110?

    Wolf, One could think that . But Buck saw there was a good market opportunity for a large folder and decided to move in that direction . I'm glad they did in light of what we have today . DM

    I have one that's a bit older but still in pretty good shape.



    It hasn't been worked on.....it's just like new.

    I absolutely love my Woodsman. It's my current EDC, and I use it for damn near everything. I love the stock sheath, but would love to carry horizontal as opposed to the vertical carry the stock sheath requires.

    EK, Welcome . There are some guys on here that might could make you a sheath to horizontal carry your 102 . They'll be along . DM
