    REAL Malachite scales on knives looks a lot different that the plastic stuff being sold as "reconstituted" malachite. Just be aware that nearly all sellers claiming to use stone for scales are not in fact using REAL stone. They are using plastic with rock dust mixed in with the plastic.

I only in about the past year figured out how to deal with the drop down front bolster effectively so now Buck 112's are part of my "normal" inventory.

    Thank you for the nice comments. You may want to head over to the Facebook site that my collectors set up for me as it has a heck of a lot more interest going on and commentary....
