    You have to love these old buck knives. Great craftsmanship from day one which they improved upon for years... I've been trying to call my older brother's to see if they still have all my old knives. We always kept most of them at our hunting camp in Pennsylvania... I haven't been up there in quite a few years... Fingers crossed!

    Thanks Brhowser87 for the heads up. @Makael , your model 124 first showed up in stores wearing that handle material in December 1982.
    That configuration continued right on into the year date stamps. I have a 124 like yours with a early year date stamp and a maroon leather sheath. Without digging it out I'll say mine is a 91 or 92. These have the thinner hollow grind and should be 425M steel. They cut very nice.
    Good photos. DM

    My wife found me a second 302 at a garage sale that has spent its life in a tool drawer in an elderly man’s garage. The box is pretty much trashed but the knife is mint.
    Sadly, the gentleman suffered from Alzheimer’s and spent several years before being diagnosed buying random stuff and hiding it around the house.

    My latest Buck from almost two weeks ago. A 505 Knight, I don't carry it, afraid I will lose it.

    Have a blessed day,

    Leon

    Not sure how to tell. Also haven’t figured out how to post pictures yet. Daughter coming over tomorrow I think, maybe she can show me how. Purchased felon C&C directly. Their website said Macassar Ebony Diamondwood. Date on box says 11/17/2016 but knife had anvil figure stamped on it.Also stamped 032 which I guess is the number on that production run. That’s all I know for now.

    That’s supposed to say “from”, not “felon”

    They didn't start the real ebony up again until the very end of 2018. So if the date on the box is correct it's probably Dymondwood (still nice). An easy way to tell is look at the side if the scale and if it's dymondwood you can see the parallel lines of the laminating process.

    I think I see those lines your talking about. I”m not a collector and just thought it would be great to have a fixed version of the 110.Very happy with the knife regardless of the type of wood.Thanks for all the info. I”m learning a lot on this website.
