    I have just decided that the Duke 500 is my favorite. I love the size, shape, and weight.

    My first good folder was a 110 when I was a kid back in the early 70's. I was a Boy Scout and wanted one for quite a while, but my folks did not have money to buy one for me. I saved and scraped together the money and ditched school to go to the Yates Army Navy store in Phoenix to buy one. I had that knife for about 20 years until I gifted it to a needy teenager.

    I also had a Ranger 112 for a long time until I gifted it, too.

    I think that I have owned nearly every Buck folder and a few fixed blades over the years, but my favorite is the Duke.

    What is yours?

    My first Buck was a 110 also from the 70s. I didn't gift it to anybody. I still have it. As far as my favorite. I like every one I have when it fits my needs.

    For general use, my 501. Then 110. For hunting though, it's always my 102!

    Any number of 112's as far as folders are concerned.

    My new favorite fixed blade knife is the new 117.

    The 112FG. This oak scaled/420 112 is usually with me, the walnut/S30V is also sweet.

    For me it would have to be 110, 112 & 500 in that order. I trimmed down and rounded out a 112 to about the 500 size, that made a nice pocket carrier.

    That is why I like the 500. It is a slimmed down 112.

    I like and own all three.

    Toss up between the 112 and the 501. I carry both at the same time so I don't have to pick. I love the 110, but I find that I don't use it that much when I carry it on a day to day basis. Never had a 500 and I want to try one, but I also want a 112 with finger grooves, and a stag 112, and a drop point 112, and a custom shop 501 in S30V and elk, and and and.........

    I like 110s, 112s, but probably my favorite is the Bucklite 422 1st versions, and the paperstone/ecolite 110 from a few years back. Its weird because on the old Bucklites, I prefer the 422 that is the 112 size, but on the Ecolites, I prefer the 110 size. I just bought my first ever 301 this week, it has possibilities!
