Sweet!

I had a black one but sold it (and kicking myself for doing so!) and then managed to get a stainless one to replace it.  It's not bnib, but it's still a great tool!  I'd love to see Buck re-introduce this tool.

Nice one mate. :tu: The BuckTool was the first tool -- and actually the first thing in general --  I had tried to buy off of the internet. Paid via bank transfer and never actually received it. This was all back in '96-'97 but I still get a bit jumpy every time I see a pic of it... :-\

I tried to make some pics of my Bucktool with my mobile phone but all of them came out too crappy to post them!  ::) :D Oh well, there are already a lot of good pics in this thread so I guess it doesn´t matter that much...

Today I have handled it the first time again since at least 12 years and I have to say that I really like the look of it. I also like the small signs on its handle which show which tools are in which handle. And if I remember right it was one of the first mt with a lock release button. But this is already all I like... Mine has got a fully serrated and a partially serrated blade which is imo a very "unhappy" combination. A plain and fully serrated blade or only a half serrated blade and a file or saw would have been much better. This said, it neither has a file nor a saw. Instead it has a lot of single flat screwdrivers plus two 3D Phillips screwdrivers. Some of them could have been integrated into a can or bottle opener like SOG or Victorniox do it. Other than that, all tools of my Bucktool have some play and if I squeeze the open handles while using the pliers, they touch each other in the middle easily. Imo the whole tool is just not really thought out and feels way to flimsy...

Being a collector, it is nice to have one but I will never ever edc it for sure!!


Sorry for my bad english and I hope you got my points!  :D

The TiNi Bucktools were given as gifts to the seven people who got the Bucktool project started. All seven people also got a custom made leather sheath for their tool. I got this tool from one of my friends who got it from CJ Buck CEO of Buck Knives (CJ Buck engraved his signature and wrote a COA). My friend  is doing a very detailed book on the history of the Buck Master knife, he is funding the book by selling Buck memorabilia. I guess it is good to have good friends.

BTW the book should be out within the next few months.

@The_Longbow.  That TiNi has to be one of the most exclsive multi's out there, you're a lucky guy. :tu:

The BuckTool with the pocket clip would be a nice catch  :dd: :dd: :D

OK my modest set of Buck MT's

Xtract at top , 360 middle & the wee 350 bottom. I gotta say the Xtract & 350's sheaths are nicely done  8) 8). My used 360 did not come with a sheath sadly.



I think the way Buck made the 360 & 350 designs so close in appearance was REALLY clever 8).Leatherman did something similar with the Skeletool & CS.


2 Phillips head drivers  :o :o , a bit on the stubby side  ::) :D :D

Serrated blade & combi blade  ??? ???, more stubby drivers.

Comparing the 360's larger driver with a LM Core  :D.


The Bucktool 350 looks a similar size too a LM Squirt P4  :think: :think:

The Squirt is a LOT more solid the 350 almost feels toy like in comparison  :think:

Look at the Buck's cap lifter  :ahhh :ahhh :D :D

Scissors are tiny & the tweezers are actually worse than the LM Micra's  :o :o :o :o :D

Now do I like my BuckTools , hell yeh  :D :D , as collector pieces  ;) :D :D. If I used the 360 & 350 I am almost certain I would break them  :( :(. It is a real shame Buck abandoned the plier based MT market as I reckon they would of made improvements & got there in the end  :think: :think:.


Leatherman have changed their corporate slogan , maybe it could be applied too BuckTools  :think: :think:
BUCKTOOL NOW YOUR READY.... TOO COLLECT  :P :D :D
