    I tackled a reblade of a Nickel Silver 112. I'm pretty fond of the results. I used a drop point blade from a Buck 442 and applied Texas Ebony scales accented with a red spacer. What do you think?

    Thanks for the compliments. It's rewarding to see your ugly mug glistening in the shiny bolster of a completed knife project!

    For the record, Mr. Sitflyer was a big help through all of this. Thanks, bud.

    A job well executed. I don't think it's a Bobcat hide. Do you use the 112 for field dressing work or everyday cores? DM

    It is a bobcat hide. I have dressed most of the white tails and hogs I've killed with a 3 dot 112.

    Thanks. I may do a NS 110 the same way next.

    Thanks. The hair looked dark. Did you just remove the entrails? DM

    That red spacer is almost maroon isn't it?
    Gig em ever chance you get.
    Nice work, did you re-blade to get the drop point? I've always liked the look of a drop point.

    Dear Buck,

    Please make this knife.

    Keep the 500 on mothballs.

    Stick with the 442 blade. Put it in a thinned version of the 112 frame (for $55) and in the Ecolite 112 frame (for $35).
