    I've got a 110 with the tip of the blade broken off. I went to return it to Buck to have the blade replaced. What I'm curious about it how the new blade will be dated. I'm guessing it will have a newer date marking on the blade. Will it be a recent blade or do they have a pile of them they pull from?

    pretty sure they'll put a 2017 blade on it.

    IMO I say it will be a 2016. Last year I waited to see the first 2016 and I believe it was around June, I saw the first 2016 reblade on ebay.

    Nope, Buck has excellent customer service. It takes a little while to get your knife back but they will replace it even if you do something stupid.
    I admitted that my son broke it using it for things that knives weren't supposed to be used for and even offered to pay for the repair.
    They gave me a new one and said thank you for being a customer.. I will always buy and gift Bucks, they are fantastic!

    You simply can't beat Buck's customer service, from everything I read, though I've never had to use it personally. Suggestion: ask Buck if they can re-fit your son's 110 with an S30V blade (for an extra charge, naturally). I recently received a Ranger 112 from Buck's Custom Shop with S30V blade and it has proven to be one of the best slicers I have ever experienced. I am not sure what makes it so good, the geometry of the blade or the high carbide content of the steel, but it has a 'bite' that makes it a pleasure to use.

    That is incredible in an age when most company's are looking for any reason possible to deny warranty service.
    I wish I knew how the one I have was broken, but that happened before it found it's way to me. Undoubtedly it was something stupid that shouldn't have been attempted!

    I sent one in requesting to buy a new blade as i broke the tip. They replaced it no charge.
