    Given the choice, I usually prefer boxes over clamshell or blister packs (boxes are more old school and they store easier). But, I gotta say, the extra description on these blister packs is sort'a cool too. I saw one of these knives recently, and though I almost convinced myself to get it then, it came with a nylon sheath.... and I figured I'd pass because the price was a bit higher as well. Anyhow, glad I decided on it this time :)

    The 110 is an addictive knife, partly due to it's price to value. You pick a 110 up and it's a solid knife and classic. Paying $40 for one seems like a steal! I had a bunch at one time but started letting some of them go. Still one of my favs. nice score!

    Enjoy it. The 110 is one of the best bargains in the knife world.

    I hope I'm not hijacking here, but I think this photo is relevant. The 100 years of Buck 110. Now you know why I am tempted...

    Btw... We all know Buck has been around for quite some time... But, imo, their dating their company as one that's over 100 years old.... well, it's pure marketing. Their founder made some knives, here and there, early on in his life, so they tack on all those years, even years he made zero knives, as part of the Buck knife company history. The Buck knife company was started in earnest sometime during the middle of last century, and so from that point is when the company should be counting it's age... But hey, marketing can be misleading ;)

    I'm sure many here already know this, but for those reading this thread and wondering if Buck makes a truly scaled down model of the Buck 110... there is the Buck 55, which is said to have purposely been given the 55 model number to represent half of the model 110's number. It's not a true scaled down 110, but does fit that bill nicely as a pretty close "mini me" of Buck's 110 :)

    I found this image online to show the two in size comparison...

    Absolutely nothing wrong with buying a second 110.

    When I saw the 50th Anniversary model, I bought two.

    Buck knives are like crack they give you an awesome thrill and are cheap enough to buy a new one anytime you want to keep the buzz going. Might be a bad analogy, just trying to say they are Awesome and a great value so why not keep buying them?
