I got an email from Copper and Clad selling a Buck 119 with a red phenolic handle. I personally haven't seen a red handled 119 in that material. Yes, I bought one. Has the red phenolic been used before on a 119?

Copper & Clad was selling the red phenolic 119 a year ago or so and eventually sold out. They were having a problem getting Buck to restock their exclusives. Just recently some started showing up back in stock and the red phenolic 119 is one of those.

Correct. At least nobody I am aware of sells or has sold the red phenolic 100 series knives except Copper and Clad.

Good to know. Thanks for the information. I noticed that I never see any photos of them on the forum.

C&C also offered the 102 Woodsman with a red phenolic handle at one time. There was a red/black swirl phenolic handle offered thru Smoky Mountain. Very rare, 100 I think. I have searched for that one in vain.
A red and black swirl sounds intriguing. I'd like to see that one. One will turn up one day in a yard sale for a dollar. Lol

They also did a 212 Ranger red & black.... but now that I think of it, it was Lucite, not Phenolic. I hope they revive the 212, like what they're doing to other exclusives.

Dates on the blades will determine new or left overs at factory. Trays of these runs sit in racks at Buck.

I am hoping these don't have the xxx/100 etching on them (first 100 of a run). That is the one thing that has deterred me in the past from buying C&C knives.

I would love to see some photos from those that have purchased recently.

Still waiting for it to arrive. Suppose to be here Saturday. Queue can I get a pic to load? Haven't tried it yet.
