@ThundahBeagle - Great job on the rescue and your new knife.  The sheath appears in good shape as well and I am sure better since you conditioned the leather. :hatsoff:

If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

Thanks Nix, Loop, Vic, Speed and everyone for the comments and help in dating my new to me but old Buck 110.

After another look at the brass scale pins, I'm of the opinion that mine is like Vic'so and Aloha'so - a nice 1978/79. Probably a 78 because that's the date code on the Western model 062 (B), and as I understand it, the pIr belonged to one man, who lost a poker game.

Very nice pics, Vic. Nice color on the Bolsters. The brasso cleaned the tarnish off of mine, but you seem to have polished those up nicely

Thank you ZRX, Barry, and Aloha, whose similar process made me decide to spruce this one up myself rather than send it out to Buck, which was always a nice option to have in the back pocket

I just used some Turtle Wax light to medium white polishing compound on mine.

Your 110 appears to be the same year as the one I have. It is my oldest Buck 110. :D

My wife and I enjoy watching "The Last Alaskans" on Discovery via my Fire Stick.   This season Heimo's daughter Krin and her family are living in one of the cabins.  On an episode she and her husband are out on a date, hunting Caribou, she is preparing to dress out the one she just dropped, and is shown honing the edge of her BUCK 110.   While dressing it out, another appears and her husband shoots it.  She  now has two to prep, and I am pretty certain he helped, as both had blood on hands while packing the meat .

She appeared very skilled with her knife.

I've been a member of the 'Buck 110' Club since around 1975.  It was my first, quality-knife/big-folder purchase.  As the years went by, better options presented themselves.  Yet, this one has remained in my stable of folders.  Just found-it again in my 'knife box', and decided to clean-it up.















The result speaks for itself, does it not?  Hard to believe, that this blade is over forty-years old!  Truly, an iconic classic.

Buck continues to be a vibrant cutlery concern.  Their cross-pollination of products with other brands, seems to work well especially, with tactical outfits like TOPs.  I would like to see Buck, make a burly tactical blade with micarta/G10-scales in S35V, or perhaps M390 to compete directly with Benchmade, Cold Steel, and ZT behemoths.  Buck Commando, anyone!?

Their 'Selkirk' folder looks interesting too.

Thanks, Barry.  I appreciate the kudos.  Quality never really goes out of style does it?  :hatsoff:

Very nice knife eTrip! Well done on the cleanup and restoration! Amazing job shining those bolsters. You can see reflection of the date code in them!

Is it possible that this particular knife was maybe your second quality Buck purchase? Or that you made it a little later than thought?  Or perhaps you had sent it in to Buck for repair?

The date code on the blade tang and the handle pins are 1980 the earliest. No less a great knife!

Interesting sheath, too. Can you post pics of the back, belt loop side?
