LB I`ve the 360, 360CL and 360FL. Of the regular 360s I`ve got two with different tool sets. So I guess I`ve got four different ones at the moment. I looking for one with the file you just got and a camo one. I just missed a camo one this week it went much higher than I thought it would.   :)

Yes the camo 360 went high especially since it did not look in very good condition. They seem to sell high around the holidays more competition.. So far I have came up with 8 different standard factory models, with 3 Special production or Prototype.
Thanks

360 BuckTool with "Buck" Etch
 This was a factory experiment done as a cover up. How ever as you can see it did not work.

Interesting variation - I've never seen that one before. :salute: What exactly were they trying to cover up?

I see a typo in my list  :-[

The 360WM  Workman is the file with 5 wire strippers
360WM file replaces drop point blade, Awl replaces can/bottle opener

360 with lanyard is The "Standard 360" from the year 2000.
The 360 with lanyard has a Serrated Sheepsfoot blade a can opener and a Phillips screw driver.

Here's another one for your list LB: :)









It's a First Production Run BuckLite tool, serial number 078 of 300. (sorry for the poor photos) The engraving is rather small, and doesn't show very well through the blister package. :-\

Very NICE J-sews I have not see one of the First Production Run BuckLites. I do have a BuckLite in the Clam Pack but it is not a First Run. So I guess this starts another quest. Thanks for the pictures and info. I will add it to the List.

I found this story in an old BCCI Newsletter. I found it interesting.
Quoted from BCCI NewsLetter May 1998

"Special Projects
Top Brands BuckTool and BuckLite Tool - No Logo
The drop point side of the handle will not have the Buck logo.
Top Brands does premium products in which they apply other
companies logo's to our products. There is no way to know who
will be ordering from Top Brands so just keep your eyes open
and if you see a BuckTool with another company's logo on the
one side, you will now know why. Approximate quantities will
be 3500 BuckLite tools and 4000 BuckTools".


 
No more information in any newsletters as to other names etched on BuckTools that Top Brand did so be on the LOOK OUT for these.

I did find on a list where there may be some (about 50) BuckTools done for the NRA  (National Rifle Association) these were etched/pad stamped by Buck Knives.
I also found a run of 2250/360's and 500/355's done for DU (Ducks Unlimited) by Buck.
The information indicates that Buck etched/pad stamped some tools on the "knife blade" and some on the "handle". If you find or have one of these let me know and I will try to find a quantity and year they were made.

As I find more special BuckTool projects I will post the information.

I found your 350 NRA-ILA on the Special Projects list for the year 2000. The Buck stock number is "350SP4".  How ever it does not give a quantity or any other information. And the logo was pad stamped at Buck.

Congrats on finally getting the Harley Buck LB! :cheers: Great photos of it too. :)



The BCCI information is helpful too, thanks. A thought though.....I can understand Buck producing a few thousand tools with no "Buck" logo so they could be rebranded for other companies, but what about the bit driver extension? Did they make those special just for the Harley version? It doesn't seem like they would tool up and make an accessory like that in such a small quantity..? :think:

The Bucktool actually bucked a trend for me - pun intended!

I consider myself to be a tool user rather than a collector, even if I have got a growing assortment to choose from. I have tools I use regularly, tools I use occasionally and tools I haven't needed to use yet - but I'm just waiting my moment. I don't consider any of my tools to be safe queens, and I certainly don't collect as an investment. I use my Mini, my Toolclip V2, Swissgrip, Mini Bear Jaws and several other tools which for many have been confined to exhibition and discussion pieces.

On top of all those I also have a Bucktool ... and it doesn't fit into any of the usage classifications.

Everything else that I've not seen as a user has now left me - Sideclip, pulse, x-tract, mini-grip ... none of those worked for me as users, so they've moved on to new homes and most importantly, I've not regretted moving any of them on.

Again, the Bucktool is different. It is a tool which I cannot see as being part of the rota or can identify a specific delegated arena for as I do with many of my tools, yet it is one which I do not want to part with. I've been tempted to offer it up for trade or sale more than once, but when I get it out of the sheath ... all of a sudden I don't want to anymore. Maybe I will at some point, but for now I'm sure even I with my strict "tools are for using" philosophy can allow myself one "collector's piece". It's not like it's valuable or special in any way other than it's wonderful quirkiness.

At least if I only have one such tool I can still say I'm not a collector ... by definition a collection should be plural  :D
