Picture Buck 110 2liner scrolled bolsters

Hone$ttom - Has that blade been sharpened "quite a bit", or is that a true example of the blade profile at that time??? If it is, I'll stop throwing them away... :rolleyes:
 
Throw'em my way:D

That's hardly an "hone$t" answer... :D

I used several eBay "deals" for the lockwork; didn't need the blades...They're still around somewhere; being used as shims, notepins, coathooks, etc...

Just curious as to whether the profile was original...or sharpened on a cement cutter... :p

[size=-2](It took over a year to get enough opinions on the surface finish to give me an idea as to whether the sanded finish on the early blades was original or not)...[/size] :rolleyes:
 
...Trax...That blade has been sharpened LOTS...Here's one that's actually an earlier version...

It's for sure been sharpened, but i don't think that much of the blade is gone, i'm no expert by any means, i do like the look of the long clip,
What do you think?

DarrylS- Is that one of yours oversharpened or not???

Here's what I've got (besides an armful of Winter coats) -




Top = 4" blade measured from pivot c/l to tip
2nd = 4 3/16"
3rd = 4 1/8"
4th = 4 1/8"

The 2nd one has a brass spacer; I have another just like it but with a steel spacer and an Idaho blade (warranty job). I'd like to punch out the Idaho blade and put #3 in that frame. #1 is obviously ground + too new; #4 someone has tried to buff to a polish (yuck!)

Still looking at pics of old Bucks on eBay to see if #3 is too ground. Can't really tell because there doesn't seem to be *any* grind edge on the oldies; they've all been factory "smoothed"...
 
...Mine has hardly been touched with a sharpener Trax...Remember that these early Buck 110's were pretty much totally "hand ground and sharpened" and some are taken down further than others...Mine is an "integral bolster" 110 so it's pretty early...Your # 3 looks pretty good from what I see...Just be careful of the lockbar notch...It appears a bit wider than the newer lockbar's are being made...
