The Buck 110 should come with the black sheath. If they still have the same package as when I bought one (couple months ago), it should come with a free Mini-Buck. A pretty good deal for about $36. They come with the edge 2000 (very nice). As far as the sharpeners go, stay away from the gimmicky things. Go to FAQs or search the archives for sharpening. There has to be a scrillion topics.

The Buck 110 is a classic knife that should give you years of good use and enjoyment.

You will get a simple and plain black leather sheath. If you maintain the edge periodically (don't let it get dull as crowbar), a ceramic rod (~$3) will work really nice and give you a good edge (for minor touch ups). For more agressive sharpening and edge maintanence, Look at combination EZ-Lap or similar diamond system with a coarse and medium side.

Stay Sharp,
Sid

Good choice, I've got several Buck 110 variants and like them all. Sounds like your mom's a nice lady, you're a lucky guy.

Good knives those 110's. I know the "yellow" sharpener you are talking about and if you want to keep that 110 in good shape DON'T get that sharpener! It will tear your blade up and you will still have a lousy edge if you let it get dull. It doesn't remove minute amounts like the other sharpeners the others above have said, it removes large amounts of the steel at the edge and still dosn't IMO give you an edge worth spit.

Let me say again. Hope you get the Buck but Don't get the sharpener.
