Buck knives owners club.
« on: May 23, 2020, 09:36:41 AM »
With so much love for the Buck 110 I thought it would be a great idea to have a thread where all Buck knives can be shown and talked about. Buck knives is one of the most respected cutlery manufacturers and has been going for well over 100 years and produce many different models. It’s kind of hard not to love Bucks.

I’ll kick off with a pic of my mini Spitfire ( 726 ) witch some of you might recognise from this thread

I'm in!   :tu:

I've been a long time Buck fan and have a couple of Buck knives in my care currently. One of my oldest and most carried Buck's is my 501,"Squire".

The 501 has always carried well and looks refined and elegant enough that it doesn't raise an eyebrow when it's pulled out in a public setting. It takes a great edge and cuts well above its size. I'm probably more passionate about my 110's or 112's, but the Squire is one knife I would not want to be without!   :tu:

Thanks, Speedy. She's a sweetheart.

Dunc, I'm not sure, but I think it is very close to the 55, perhaps a little bit longer. I've never had a 55....now you have me wondering.....

Love the 501. Mine is an Esquire and is currently at Buck for a Spa treatment.

Here is another one of my favorites from Buck:





This little beastie, small Vantage Pro, is really solid and functional. It makes a great little EDC. The liner lock works well and I find it easy to disengaged with one hand. I also like the full grip on this small knife. Buck could have made the scales thinner, but I like their choice of a handle that feels fuller and more secure.

I don't have a large Vantage, but I may need to fix that.  :tu:

I’ve never owned a Vantage but it is on my list of knives to get. Recently I’ve fell in love with the White and black Spitfire on Copper and Clads website and just found out they ship to the UK  :woohoo:

   Now to start saving lol

This is a 371 I picked up on a trip to Idaho.





The Stockman is one of my favorite traditional patterns, and Buck seems to do well with them. I didn't realize this it was made in China, not the Idaho shop, when I got it. However, it is a solid knife. I've used it a bit and found it to be on par with Buck's usual QC standards. Definitely a chunkier, rugged version of a Stockman, but still a very useful 'Jack Knife'. The edges need a little refining, but they do get sharp!

I've always liked the look of the Squire, and to some extent, the Prince too... especially with oak or stag scales...  :dd:

I have a few Bucks from over the years. My orange Bucklite from the late 80s I carried in scouts was my first Buck. The rest are fairly recent.

It's been a great user. Got it a few years ago from GadgetGuy in a trade I believe. Wife stole it for a while to use in the kitchen. Blade steel is S30V.  I reacquired it and she hasn't noticed (so far).  :whistle: :whistle:
