    Man that would patina pretty with those scales.
    I didn't know Buck made such a thing.
    Nice knife. Special run I'm sure.
    Are there more of those around?

    Just today we were working with some copper with beautiful patina.
    Real pretty stuff.

    I remember hearing about that one...Copper frame 112's are about as rare as it gets. The BCCI run was the only source of frames and frankly few are available as a lot members have kept their's because of the matching 110. It was the 112 that brought me back into active collecting a few years ago. I missed the newsletter and didn't order one. My Brother David felt sorry for me and asked Joe if he had a frame for a Custom and he found one and made this for me. I've never actually held one with the carbon fiber handles and I heard sometimes a tiny bit of copper would stick up and you could feel it. The steel (S35VN) is one of the best Buck uses for the 112 and is really limited to the BCCI and a few buildout's but Buck is using it more and more for other models and LE's ..If you only had a few knives Mike I would say put a edge on it and use it but as is it certainly a one of one and super rare and odd. Thanks for sharing with us!

    It had a touch of patina so i polished uo my copper knives. The 112 has some infused carbon fiber. It has copper strands woven in the material. I didnt notice until i polished how much there was. The stag copper is one of my personal grail 110s. Flat grind S35vn, copper and stag. 20190914_083737.jpg 20190914_083804.jpg 20190914_085406.jpg 20190914_085125.jpg 20190914_084023.jpg 20190914_084015.jpg 20190914_084004.jpg 20190914_083800.jpg 20190914_083748.jpg 20190914_085041.jpg

    Called C Tec, Took awhile to find one that you couldnt see the glue underneath thru the scales.

    Those copper frames are cool. As I was scrolling I was eyeing the c-tec but it looks better then most I've seen (not buck, other companies) I wasn't sure if it was something different. It's very even the way it was sanded. Whoever finished that handle payed close attention.

    Copper 110s and 112s are the squared frames which is cool.
