    Little Blue piece, about all you can do is be a surgeon and super glue it back in place, that is if you have it. That piece as stated helps hold up the scissors where you could grab them, jigged bone version has metal stud. These were written and photo'ed by me in the past and posted here and at BCCI web history sites. $149 no way. Maybe if you needed it to complete all the colors series, with box $50, otherwise less. Still can be found at knive shows and all other spots. You search wizards can find it in Buck BF archives and provide a link, likely faster than me.
    At the end of their run, Buck put a better scissor in a black Delrin and red Delrin, both sawcut, scissor made by WENGER. aka swiss army. A much superior scissor. Then they got the production axe. Those do get the name "RARE", value "what you will pay". I only have the red one and never found a black WENGER.
    Let me go to photo bin. 300

    OK, broke down since this photo was a row or two down. Old on top, last production on bottom.

    If you don't have the part, just put in a drop of hot glue and hold it upside down till it cools. Or do something similar. Fine to display in a collection, just be honest if you ever sell it and tell what you did. 300

    Awww... Why'd you have to go and do that? Another variation to look for!

    You know, years ago when I decided to start collecting Buck knives, I thought it'd be easy, collect 'em all and move on. I didn't dream that 30-odd years later I'd still be finding variations and new things.

    By the bye, the knife in question is now back down to $99. :cool:
