Buck's warranty is the best. Bought a 110 and 301 with broken tips for 5 dollars. neighbor had two cannot remember what they were but looked like 110's with broken tips.Buck replaced the blades and said the 301 was old so they replaced it with a new one. No charge but next time it would be 10.00 to replace a blade. I will only buy bucks after that. Forgot a 303 was wore out and they replaced it.

Purchased a Buck 813 Workman, but am having a devil of a time having USPS deliver it to me. It was delivered to wrong address on 9/11. After a week, I filed a protest this past Monday with USPS postal inspector, who got back to me Wednesday and told me the knife would be in my hand yesterday. Still no joy. Hopefully today.

The 800 series of Bucks were 'worker bees', designed for installers and contractors. The 813 has three blades, a drop point, hawkbill and electricians screwdriver-wire scraper blade. It was manufactured in the early 90's, discontinued, then started up again for short time. Not that common.

Editted - no joy in Mudville. The customer where package was delivered claimed no knowledge of delivery. So score one lost knife for me. :^(

Pair of Buck's should be coming in today's mail ...

... RFC member LarDeBear sold me both of them, one a Buck 112 Ranger Founder's Edition in tin, the other a 639 Fieldmate (Thanks again sir ). Doing some internet research on the 639, I had no idea there were so many varieties of the 600 'Mate' family.

Looking forward to checking these out in person.

Picking up a 55 EDC lockback today . . .

. . . the idea of a 1/2 scale of the classic 110 (110 / 2 = 55) was intriguing. Should be in today's mail, hopefully. Editted: yup, came in. Cool knife !!

Well, I found and purchased a Bucklite 424 2nd Gen. lock back for a reasonable price. Also found a Buck manufactured piggy back sheath for a 102 Woodsman - 501 lock. That sounds like a nice combination for the south Texas monte.

Here is my EDC. I love drop points so when they had the Ranger with this blade it was a no brainer

Deerspy, I wouldn't know what price it would bring, but I think with the evidence of the use of it, it has much sentimental value. Might be a great gift for a valued friend or relative as a memonto. And you get to visit it from time to time.

A pair of Bucks, a 110 RSD2 Slim Select, a thinner synthetic handled 110 which is greatly lightened from the original version. One hand opening courtesy of thumbstud and a deep pocket carry clip, my knife has the red handle color. A link, courtesy of Buck factory:

And a Short Nighthawk TOPS collaboration with Buck, a partially serrated clip fixed knife with piggyback sheath. Appears to be a nice woods knife, the handle is very comfortable. Another factory link.

Very nice 110 Customs Mr. Williams . . .

. . . Buck chose wisely in manufacturing some Bucks with extra attention to details. The 110 is an American Classic !

Found a Buck-Tops Short Nighthawk 655 that needed a good home. Here is an internet ad with the specifics to it, as well as a photo.

This was the only Buck I owned for 40 years. Wish I would have bought a dozen. I have heard that this was also their steak knife. Sent it to Bob Dozier to try for a horizontal sheath but was told no go. Since they had it, I went with a vertical one. It has seen lots of miles and use. Original sheath is marked 107 also.
