My dad bought this for me for my 13th birthday back in the early eighties. I picked this one over the regular one cause I thought the finger grooves were cool and I still do.  :tu:

The 112 has a great grip, even without finger grooves. Such a sweet little knife. Substantial, to be sure, but can ride in a pocket.



I bought this one at the Buck factory in Idaho. Nice people.

Nice pics Steve.
That was a really cool 13th birthday present. If I had gotten one of those at 13 it would have been a really big deal.
Thanks for sharing. :like: :tu: :tu:

Great pic Nix,
I agree about the grip on a 112.
I would love to go to the Buck factory. :like: :tu: :tu:

The 112 model is one knife that has been on my list.  Yet, to find one in any stores that I have found Buck knives.  Either they sell very fast, or retailers do not order, or Buck does not offer to distribution channel allowing any margin. 

May have to order from factory, actually 2, one stock for EDC and one customized.   

I like my 110, and love the 55.   The 112 should be equally lovable in my mits.

It's funny, I've spoken with a number of guys who find their way to the 112 and end up deciding it's their favorite knife. I get that. I really like 110's, but the 112 has this innate appeal. Very handy knife and easier to tote than a 110. And there is a subtle difference in the grip of the 112 that I find very appealing. You definitely need to give one a try.  :tu:

In 1981, when I was 30, a friend of mine wanted a black powder rifle I had, so I suggested that we go to the local gun shop and find something that he could buy to trade me for the rifle. When I saw the finger grooves on the Buck 112 I had to have it, so he bought it and swapped it for the rifle.

That's the rest of the story.

Cool story !

It would have been 1980 when I got mine, took a trip over to St. Paul to Joe's sporting goods. Knowing my dad they must of had a sale on to go all the way over there just for a knife.   :D


Just put a coat of mink oil on my sheath  :tu:

That is a great memory of you and your dad.
Good idea about the sheath, I better oil my sheath.
Your sheath looks like it is in the same condition mine is. They have held up fine.

It's like a little time machine. Just seeing the knife instantly transports me back to the day I got it.

Here's an interesting one:



The steel is 5160. Scales are stabilized wood (probably Buck's Diamond Wood).

I'm a sucker for 5160. It isn't very stain resistant being a medium-carbon spring steel, but it sure seems to take an edge and is as tough as....an old Ford-150 leaf spring. Buck doesn't seem to use it much, but I'd kinda like to see some more of their 110's and 112's in 5160.
