You could very-well be correct, TB.  I may have given my first one away, and replaced-it with this one.  I know, that the sheath in not the 'original' for this product.  I'll try to get a pick of the back of the sheath for you.

Just found-it again in my 'knife box', and decided to clean-it up.[/b]

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

Very nice eTripper! :like: :tu: :tu:

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.


Great pics eTripper! :like: :tu: :tu:

A testament to your generosity if you gave it away, sir.

You've got a beautiful example there, really well done on the knife.

I find the really older sheaths tend to have a high loop that allows the sheath to carry much lower off your belt. The bran new ones are a strip of leather sewn flat against the back of the sheath, and it carries higher.

I'm curious if that change was cold turkey or if there is some sort of slow transition with a different middle ground sort of layout

Thanks eTripper! Nice knife

@ eTripper - thanks for sharing the before and after pictures of your 110, and I have never seen a sheath imprinted as yours, a Classic !

Plus I enjoyed your other pictures as well, the "tacticool" style is new to me, now to avoid the itch to search for ...

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

Hope yours is as good!

@ E-TRIPPER,  wonderful 110 you've got there.  They clean up really well dont they?  You plan to give this knife some belt time?

Here's a pic of the back of the 110 sheath; which interested you.  I am planning on putting this 'classic' back into my EDC rotation.

Very nice sheath eTripper!

That sounds definitely the old style loop on the back of that sheath. Same as my '78, except I don't have that kick-a $$ embossing like yours. My '78 has just Buck in a western style script, while my new one has Buck and the anvil. Yours is something nice

 :tu: I've seen this video before but worth another look.  Still carrying my Buck 110 on my hip.  Such a terrific piece of knife history and a wonderful simple honest knife.

Just spotted the 110 in a "Caprice Des Dieux" commercial on TV.

Found it on YT in French, but the clip is the same:
