    Age may be the answer. When I hit 70 I noticed that I didn't have the same urge to buy. Now I have almost total control. I evaluate potential purchases with cold logic. Most of the time.

    Note that he said, "the wife I HAD." If you're married.......take that as a portent of your future. :D

    Buck 110 - reground blade.....?

    A Buck Knives Spa treatment helps a lot........and I think that's where that knife has traveled.

    Buck 110 - reground blade.....?

    I'd guess it's been back to Buck for the Spa treatment.

    Thank you, I appreciate the welcome. I do have a few 105s around and I'm amazed that there are some who don't own one. I sure thought we'd all be in that club being that this is a Buck forum. I recently made up a "Get Home" backpack for my car and the fixed blade knife I chose was a 105 wood...

    Wonderful finds! Hard to believe they hadn't already been snapped up by collectors!

    Just an observation, no need for such excited responses. And......we found one guy (st8yd) who actually does NOT own a 105. And here I thought everybody had one. :) Oh.......and the lawn mower is ok, but we're relying on the snowblower now. Seasons have changed.

    I am of the opinion that I know as much as you. Maybe we'll have to agree to disagree. Although I'm not too sure of your price on the 119. I was in Runnings yesterday and they were selling them to the average Joe for $89.95. Around here..........Mr. Joe Average finds that expensive.

    That's what I was getting at when I said that I'd like it even better if it had a pommel and a real finger guard. Flat knives are, to put it flatly, boring. The difference is that this 819 does have some shape and character to the blade, unlike some more recent full tang offerings like the 104...

    Full Tang 819/119

    So you don't know why they wouldn't...... But do you know why they would? Because I don't know why the average Joe would buy a knife as expensive as the 819. Average Joes buy user knives as a general rule.......and they think the ordinary 119 is already pretty darn expensive. See where I'm...

    Interesting. I see this beautiful 819 as an art object but I think I'd like it even better if it had a pommel and a real finger guard. Flat knives are, to put it flatly, boring. At least this 819 does have some shape and character to the blade, unlike some more recent full tang offerings like...

    I was just wondering.........why is a "Club" needed? Doesn't almost everybody in the Western World own at least one Buck 105??? Is there anybody here who does not qualify to be in the club? :)

    Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals?

    You should consider buying used. Check e-Bay or this guy https://www.bladeforums.com/members/larry-oden.104995/ He can put you on his e-mail list and send you a copy of his inventory every few months.

    Photos Buck 112 Two-Dot

    Those are 440C. You should call them and make sure they put the Edge 2K on it when they sharpen it. They probably do it anyway, but it would be good to check.

    Buck boxes?

    A lot of opinions here.......but if you're young enough....... One thing to keep in mind is that some older boxes and papers, etc., are now worth as much or more than the knife that came in them. Thus if you have room to store them and keep them in great condition.......doing so could make you...

    Let's face it........these are not users. They're display knives. Joe average would never buy one. Most collectors would like it but buy something else. That's the way the business works. Did they even sell the whole thousand? Nobody knows for sure.
