Thanks guys , I have both a 110 and 112 but like you say the 112 is much easier to carry in the pocket and a really good fit in the hand

Mine is the first version of 112 made, with Micarta inlays and inverted tang stamp. Made in 1972. It is nice.

Sheath not original but close enough.

That is a really nice one, Frankki!

Are the micarta scales original?

Yes, those are original inlays. Learned from the big-time Buck collectors that the first  Ranger versions built had micarta, then they switched to segua/shedua wood, later yet ebony.

Very cool.

I didn't realize they were using micarta that early.   :tu:

Yup, I only learned myself a few years ago that Buck was using 440C and real ebony wood in the earlier 110/112 series knives. That got me interested and I purchased some examples, and eventually I found about the really early micarta 112s and even found one to buy. Wasn't exactly cheap but I do like it!  :D

I have this 112LT that rides in front right pocket.   It is a nice carry option and not to much larger than my BBW.

Hope yours is as good!

Not being satisfied with the status quo is what motivates invention.In my case I just like tinkering with knives.I enjoy working on them to make them function more efficiently or modify them to fit a certain need or desire.

This one of those that I modified to satisfy that need for a more compact Buck 1112 Ranger.

These pictures should tell that story.

Very cool.

For myself, I really value the 'chunky' feel of my beloved 112. But, it looks like you did a great job there!   :tu:

That's very cool Frankki,congratulations.

I am fortunate to live in the USA and have more ready access to these old classics.

I just checked and found three Micarta models and two with Segua wood handles in my collection.

I'll try and remember to take some pics tomorrow.

Thanks Barry.

These Buck Micarta 112's were my holy grail for several years.When they appear for sale,they usually attract a lot of attention.

Remember they were made for only one year,1972.
