    I need help compiling a list of Damascus knives that Buck has produced over the years. The only ones I can think of are the 110, 112, 184, and the 970. If anybody knows of any others, please let me know.
    Thanks,
    Eric

    Eric, they did a custom 937, it was a combination Sub-Hilt fighter and hunter... And a 102, one of kind Custom... I'm sure they did other Custom ones too... I think they did a Sub-Hilt 904 too... I'm not sure about that one, but I can find out more tomorrow...

    They had a LE 290 Rush in 2005 with damascus blade and mammoth bark ivory inlay.

    All the original custom shop 900 series knives were offered in Damascus. I have a 119 and a 124. I don't know which of the 900 series were actually built in Damascus. I also have a 529 and the 500, 501, 503 and 505 in Damascus come to think of it.

    Rich;
    That doesn't surprise me. I don't collect the Rush so it probably missed my radar screen. I didn't mean to imply that the answer I gave was definitive for all Buck models. Thanks for the input.

    I didn't realize that there were that many different models with Damascus blades! I have never seen several of those models in Damascus. Does anybody have any pictures they could share of some of these knives mentioned?
    Thanks,
    Eric

    I don't have a camera. Sorry!

    I also remembered I have some Mini Mentors that are Damascus that were given as award knives so only a couple of each exist. FYI.

    I saw a Crosslock with Damascus blade on one of the auction sites noting only a small # made. I figgered it was an outside mod, anyone know?

    Don't know about the Crosslock, but I've seen alot of aftermarket damascus blades for the 110 for sale. I'm bettin' there's alot of damascus 110's that came to being that way.

    Buck made Just about every model with a Damascus blade in the custom shop when it was In San Diego... That's what Leroy told me... Models that Buck was making at the time that is.... Some are one of a kind....

    Hawkeye:

    LOL -- did you get yourself one yet??!!

    I did recently buy two of the 118's in D2 steel, always liked the 118... had one that I found back in the 70's, then lost it years later.

    Need to stop by here more often, seems like work and life get in the way of having fun!
