My first Buck

I just got my first Buck knife yesterday. I decided to buy a good old 110. I sat down on the sofa last night after opening it and was refreshed to read the nice little paper pamphlet that comes with the knife. I was very happy to see that Mr. Buck puts his trust in the Lord.

I was also surprised to see a leather sheath in the box. That is just great. I wondered why the guy gave me such a large box.

How can you beat that deal? I got a great knife, with a leather sheath, and some nice reading material.

Thanks Buck! You've got a new lifetime customer.

LOL @ TLC


Welcome to the Buck Forum Joe!

Some of us have found Buck knives to be very addictive... :eek:

But I am confused when you talk about the Box. Lately the new ones have been in the plastic clampack stuff, or one of the collectable tins.

Curious that you got one in a box :confused:

My Wal-Mart has both...yellow box for $29.95; tin for $23.44... :rolleyes:

Both have Idaho tang stamps...Except for the yellow-box one I bought, which had the "T"... ;) I had to look through the stack to find the older one... :p

The box was a long yellow one about 11 inches long, 2 inches wide, and 1.5 inches tall. The date on the box says 3-28-05.

The box Says "BUCK knives" all over it.

Bucks with original box, papers, and sheath draw bigger bids on eBay... :)

I guess, except for the customs, I have never bought a new 110 in an actual box. But then, first new 110's I bought were 2002's on a closeout thing in 2004. Then the 2005's when Academy went up against Walmart. Those were all in a clampack. Hadn't thought about any 2005's even being in boxes. Except for the customs... Interesting....

I have 5 of the yellow boxes on the shelf behind me...Interestingly, the three 2005 boxes are a nice, bright, yellow color...the other two are a darker golden color... :confused: Not old...they're from the early '00's...

I can see the same in some of my boxes.

See Joe, We have shelves full here behind us. Beware :D

Joe, Join the buck collectors club if you want a lot of interesting reading. Not to mention the opportunity to buy special customs.

LHF, clampack or box will depend on the retail outlet that will be selling the knife. Most of the stores that sell with a clampack put them on a hook display (large, bulky and takes up a lot of space). Stores with counter displays will usaly have boxs locked in the case (smaller and easy to steal). The only retail store in my area that has the clampack is sports authority, a very large store with a lot of floor space and their stock is on an end cap, help yourself type of display. All of the other stores have the small boxs locked up and you need help to get one. This is just my opinion and observations.

My K-Mart had the clampacks. Locked in a glass case. :rolleyes: Idaho tang stamp. It was during that one-week 20% off sale.

Sounds logical to me. Guess I just never thought about it... Thanks

Hey Joe, welcome to the cult...eh...I mean club.

You picked a great knife with an awesome heritage.
Before you know it, you'll be ordering a custom 110 or a Cabela's 110.;)

Peace,
Allen.

Yep JD...
Once you go Buck, you never go back. One may leave for a bit, but they always come back.
And, I too, appreciate the flyer in the package. It's nice to know that the values of some are not tainted by being so PC. Especially from a world famous corporation.
I hope you have many Bucks in your life...but always hang on to the first one.
Me.

Welcome to the forum Joe...LOL...These fellas ain't kidding about the "addiction" though. If you have one 110 you're hooked already. Get ready for the "customs" and "limited editions" just like Allen said...You're in for a real "ride" Joe...Get ready...LOL...:)

Thank you for the warm welcome. I'm not too worried about the resale value of a Buck box because I don't plan to get rid of the 110. That puppy will stay with me. I will hold on to the box and the pamphlet just for the neat factor. :)

I believe Buck dealers are given the option to order clam pack or box, both options are available, listed as different catalog numbers with each knife model number.
