The other night during an emergency two of my knives were destroyed. One of them was a Buck 110. I thought I'd share the photos here in addition to them being in the Spyderco forum (The other knife is a Byrd).

Comparison of the Buck and Byrd's lock engagement.

Enjoy.
 
One of favorite verses from the New Testament...revised for use here:
"He Wept".

That is sad...
But, a cool pic of the engagement mechanism.
 
Vivi,
What in the hell were you doing to kill that 110.....I hope it gave it's life to save yours!!!!!! A little more information about the root cause of the tragic loss is in order....we all want to know....just the facts....mam

Chopping through metal with full arms swings with lots of adrenaline in me, using it as a makeshift hammer etc. Me and my friend got in a sticky situation, but we can out a lot better than the knives. *shrug*


What's fascinating to me is how little damage the edge suffered, especially considering you can see I reprofiled this 110 flat to the stone.
 
Oh Vivi,

The Bucks in my displays are were all weeping at first for the loss of a family member. Now they are all shrieking......FLOG HIM....GET A ROPE.....HANG HIM.....I had to cover the displays with a blanket. I'm afraid I'll have to turn you in for knife abuse. :( :( :(.

Actually that Byrd knife put the Buck to shame as far as durability in this given scenario goes. Both stout knives, but I think the Byrd is a bit tougher overall after examining and using them each to the point of no return.
 
Reading the original thread... For some reason I don't think these will be considered warranty repair... Unless of course full arm swings into steel are considered "any defect from manufacture" :D
 
UMM.....I don't wanna be a knit picker,but my job keeps me paying attention to extreme details,so i am wondering if it was an extreme emergency as you say,just how did you save the little knife tip and slivers of handle material in that emergency situation,i cpould not of found the little blade tip that was broke off.good job!

I have a 110 in similar shape ,it too saved 2 lives and isn't going back to buck for warranty,its serving a reminder of why to wear seatbelts.

Yeah, I'm just going to keep both knives. I don't know why I was even thinking warranty to begin with.

After the situation was over, we got to go back to where it happened. The knives were in a couple pieces but not fully dis-assembled like in the photos. Wasn't too hard to retrive them. I'm surprised I located the tip too though. I think I'm still missing a few parts to the Byrd though. Some screws or something.

Oh well, this gives me good motivation to finally put a decent edge on my holiday edition 112 and Byrd Meadowlark, both of which went unused in light of their larger versions.

Well....lets see. A brass frame folder to be use as a chisle to cut...or a hammered trough metal:confused: :eek: :( ....thats not what this tool was made for!!!!!

I'm still a little fuzzy on what you were doing......so.....my mind puts it like this......Vivi and his pal piss off the mob.....why because the are viscous knife killers......so they end up locked inside a metal drum cast out to sea....no, no......they would have drown trying to get out..Ok....cast into the local land fill.....therefore......they must cut themselves out of the drum.....or suffocate.....so the knives gave up their lives to save the lives of our villains :p

...I'm amazed...I drop a pin or rivet on my floor and it's gone forever never again to be seen...You "nuke" View attachment 65251 your knives into pieces of pins and rivets all over some county and you're able to find 'em...amazing...:rolleyes:
