    A Big thanks to Buck Knives, Buck Custom Shop and Richard the Craftsman.


    ADVERTISEMENT
    I will post pics either later this week or on the Sunday Picture Show.

    I received my outstanding custom Buck 110 today, S30V Blade, Nickle Silver Bolsters and Smooth Buffalo Horn Slabs. I want to thank the great team at Buck knives and especially Richard the Craftsman that made my knife. The fit and finish on this knife is perfect and it is indeed a fine knife.

    If you are thinking of getting a custom Buck 110 and are on the fence, I say do it, this is the best money as far as knives go that I have ever spent.


    This knife is going to look great by a 2012 Model 124 when I can get one! LOL!!!!

    Yes it was Richard, one of the cool things is, we share the same first name. He sure can put a nice knife together, the slabs are seemless with the bolsters, super great job all around. I have one more I want to get, I got to have and elk handle custom later on.

    Another thing I had was some script type engraving as well, that looks really nice on the nickle silver bolsters.

    OK! Guys sorry I suck at taking pictures and I have a poor camera too! I can not do this nice knife justice with what I have but here are some pics, this knife looks far better than it shows in any of these. I plan on getting a good camera when I get back to work for sure.

    jb4570,

    I will carry on special occasions most likely. I know the pics don't show it well but on the front bolster is my First Initial and last name and on the rear bolster is the year 2012. I got this knife as a present to myself for my Retirement from the U.S Army in this month after 20 years of Service, hence why I had the year 2012 put on it.

    Nice knife. That's the configuration that I've been wanting for awhile. My income tax check is going to be spent fast this year

    Nice knife!
    I was hesitant at first to order from the custom shop but I guess I will also order a 110 now!

    Rick,
    I am glad you like the way the knife turned out and will pass you comments on to Richard. He has been with us for quite a few years now and I know he will appreciate your kinds words.
    Congrats on your retirement and thank you for your service!
