    POLL added, should the Buck 819 make a return as a full tang version of the 119. 119 stays a 119.


    Just hit the mailbox. Buck 819 with S30V.
    What a great idea to have a full tang 119 option with the custom shop choices as well.

    Thanks for the photos, Mike, nice looking. I like that blade, without fuller and that the tang is stamped.

    I really like the blade shape. Very graceful lines.

    I think it would be good, but send it to me and I'll try it out and let you know.

    That is one model from the Signature Series knives. A top shelf offering, mirror polished blade of S30V with a up-grade sheath and
    a self guard with a lanyard hole. A lot to like. DM

    I think those handles were from stabilized walnut. DM

    That knife is beautiful and certainly a nice rarity.

    As a production knife. I doubt it would be very successful. Too many other established full tang designs. On the market.

    finished the way that one is it would be too high priced and with lesser fit and finish it’s just another full tang knife in a full market.

    That is a fine looking knife. If Buck Knives were to offer it again I would be in for a small one (118 or 105 or 212) - a size I would actually use. OH

    The series may have been the model 102, 103, 105 & 119. I could be off one. DM

    good point and maybe so. think price point would be a major influence on movment of it. too high, might not move well.

    Let's face it........these are not users.

    They're display knives.

    Joe average would never buy one.

    Most collectors would like it but buy something else.

    That's the way the business works.

    Did they even sell the whole thousand?

    Nobody knows for sure.

    I took it as meaning bringing back the model full tang at any level not just the high end as Mike's is, but just putting the full tang "119" in production. I would pick it in a base model over the 119.
