Those Apache sheaths are awesome . . .

. . . nice work sir.

Found and just ordered a Buck sheath knife I have never heard of - the Gen 5. This was made a little less than a decade ago, some in some special steels. Mine was a special order for Cabelas, has rosewood grips with diamond panels at the pins, a single brass guard and a 3 1/4" 420HC fixed blade. To me, appears very striking - I really wanted it from the get-go.

Internet search BUCK GEN 5 and you will likely find a copy of it.

Another Buck I hadn't heard of . . .

. . . the Buck V52 Selector lock back. Buck offered these in the early 1990's, a Bucklite Valox grip with replaceable blades that switched out. Gutting blades, clips - drop points - serrated - saw blades, I think 10 different blades to be installed in handle (one at a time of course ).

Comes with the 42801 clip blade and 42835 saw blade. Sure would like to find a drop point non serrated and possibly the skinning blade, I'll pass on the gutting blade though, too short in my opinion.

9 Bucks in my collection.

2 #119s
1 #470
5 #110s
1 #303 Cadet
One of the #119s, one of the #110s and the #303 were gifts from my late father. I hold them pretty dear to me. The rest have been acquired here and there. Gifts, flea markets or Wally.
I have some other brands of knives. But prefer a Buck. I carry a #110 everyday on my belt. Would feel naked with out it. My dear wife bought me a #110 lite knife for Christmas this year. I really like it. And would recommend it. JA

A Buck 117 Trophy Set was found and purchased. A tandem dual flapped sheath, with Skinner 103 and 116 Caper fixed knives in pouches. A good set of meat processing tools.

Edit - post #74 has a Buck V52 Selector, a Valox handled 110ish clip with removeable blades. I hadn't noticed it until now - nice !
