    Some Sterling Silverware appears to have embossed designs. Maybe that technique could be applied to knife handles. Victorinox does Sterling Silver Classics (not my picture). image.jpeg

    Here is a few, my 301 that I carried for years, a 307, a 501 that belongs to my wife, and a 105 that I bought new probably in the mid to late 60's.

    Have a blessed day,

    If carried in the belt you don't/won't feel the weight. :)
    Today's silver prices would probably still make it cost prohibitive though.

    Buck 105 Pathfinder that my late cousin bought at the MCBCL MCX in 1966.

    Buck 105 Pathfinder that I bought at the APG MD PX in 1976.

    Buck 301 Stockman my Grandma gave me for my birthday in November 1972 or for Christmas 1972.

    Buck 110 Folding Hunter 1988 - award/gift knife from the time when I sold vinyl siding in the late 1980’s. I was a “Tin Man” in those days (as some folks called us)!

    Nice knives,Sometimes I think to myself when Hoyt And Al Buck were building these knives that if they ever imagined people someday would be collecting the knives as opposed to using the them for their intentions as good solid tools.

    78-79 2 dot... Found on ebay for 55, offered 45 and got it. Worth it. The blade was dull and I guess never sharpened, so I've given it a good edge and I love it. There were quite a few 2 dots that were in questionable shape (chipped ebony and blades sharpened away) that were going for much more. I'm glad I found this one, I'm carrying and using it and enjoying having a knife this solid and it's older than I am!

    I laughed when I saw an ad for a knife (like the 110)
    But they said "a stainless steel frame, so it will last longer than brass!" and I just shook my head. Brass seems to hold up fine for 40+ years... :D

    Yeah some sellers think their junk is made out of gold. But There are deals to be had also. Like this shedua wood 112 for about $25.
