    Does anybody still daily carry a buck 110. I've had one for about 6 or so years now and have yet to carry it daily. I would like to but it feels uncomfortable and takes forever to get out and out away. With mmy sebenza, griptilian or military which I nnormally carry, it's simple to use. I love the whole history behind the 110, the ruggedness and the feel of it. Do you carry iit above your rear pocket, on your sside or closer to your front? I also feel like it sticks out in public. Thoughts?

    Sometimes. I will stick it in my back pocket, my wallet holding it in place. Not the 'best' knife I own, but I trust it to do whatever I ask it to. Takes a good edge, not difficult to sharpen. Solid pick.

    It's in my rotation. Goes on my side, never fails me. Good solid knife.

    Most days I carry a 110 or a 112. I supplement with a large stockman for small jobs.

    Too heavy for my taste. I carry a small traditional in my front pocket and that's enough for most days.

    My one and only 110 is years old and the sheath has a permanent lip bend at the bottom. It is shiny polished over much of its surface from jacket and seat rubbing. I actually applied some Dubbin to it a few weeks ago. That 110 and a chunk of oak rod made me feel safe when I drove night shift taxi in the north, while going to school. My philosophy was #1 go home in one piece each night, #2 make some money. My plan was to run like hell and maybe use the wooden dowel or 110 as a last ditch if I was in severe trouble. I have pretty much zero interest in any type of knife fighting. But if someone means me mortal harm and I was alone at 3am I wanted more than my ugly face and bad breath for defense. Funny, When I handled the 110 those weeks ago it seemed smaller and lighter than I remembered. But then I have some very large folders, machetes etc.

    i really want to carry mine I love the darn thing... I've stuck it in my back right pocket but i can only carry it comfortably with some thick jeans. I did ask a custom maker about a pocket clip and thumb stud job but have yet to get the funds... It's either put a clip and stud on it or buy a BM 710 and thats a tough choice for me...

    Not as much as i used to but YES. I cannot tell you how many deer I've gutted with my 110. I got my first buck 110 from my mother on my 12th birthday. Thats also the age you can take a deer in PA. So its got a spot in my heart, its a classic that cannot be replaced by any modern knife. I.E. pocket clip era folder.

    I carry mine sometimes, depending on what I'm doing. The Walmart 110' come with a nylon sheath that can be mounted on the belt horizontally. You won't even notice it in that position.

    I bought mine at Gemco with my paper route earnings when i was 14 and carried it for the next 6 years or so. It was a lock blade and there wernt many choices for blades that locked from what i remember. All i'd ever had was scout folders and SAK's, having a blade that locked was a big deal. I loved that old Buck but once the Delica and Endura were invented, i never looked back.

    The Buck 110 doesn't really strike me as something that one would stick in his pocket. More like something you throw in your bag when going out in the woods or going fishing. Also, I don't think I've heard of any other production folder that comes with a sheath.

    I've owned 5 or 6 different 110's. Mostly older verisons. They are a great knife. Well made, and probably one of the best values in knives still today. That said, I don't like things hanging off my belt, and the knife is bigger than I like.
    I have big hands, but still prefer the 112. They fit my hand like a glove, and are still plenty big to do most tasks needed. Even as much as I like the 112, I just can't get use to having a sheath on my belt all the time.

    They are great and classic knives, but a bit too heavy for my taste. I sometimes carry it in the woods, in its sheath on the belt. Had a 112 too, but still too heavy. I much more prefer the Buck 450RD instead.

    Carried it every day back in the late '70 early '80s. Either in my pocket or in the sheath.

    I made up a fold over pocket sheath that rides next to my wallet, and it makes the 110 or 112 a dream to carry. It holds it upright for easy access, and it didn't take more than 10 minutes to make.

    Once you get around to figuring out how you can carry the 110, you'll find it's a fantastic carry piece for days when you need a good strong knife that is comfortably hand filling. I rotate the 110 and 112 in carry about once or twice a week. I have some Cabela's points burning a hole in my pocket that I am TRYING to save up for a new black powder revolver. However, those Alaskan Guild 110's just look sooooo tempting:)

    I mostly will carry one on my belt or back pocket next to a wallet.

    As the snow flys. it'll sometimes ride in a work coat for easier access.

    BTW I bought a 112 decades ago and never carried it. Why? The 110 I grew up with and it is as Traditional to me as a slip joint from WR Case.

    It's what I usually carry around the house when I'm wearing jeans or my Dickies. Also, carry it around when out and about, sometimes, but the blade is longer that the law likes.

    I tried a couple times, but found it too bothersome without a pocket clip(which surprised me as I'm normally a slipjoint type guy), the BM Hardtail makes for a good modern rendition of the 110.
