The 186 looks interesting, what is a takedown knife?

Sent fra min FRD-L09 via Tapatalk
The 186 was introduced in the mid 1980's and featured among other things a clip that could be attached to the side via Allen screws.It one of the screws was extra long and protruded through the other side to allow the take down tool to be attached. It was a small Allen wrench on a ring.If you didn't want either the clip or the tool attached you could install a shorter screw(supplied with the knife) and use it that way. For cleaning,you could dis-assemble the entire knife with the tool. They even provided a plastic sleeve to cover the blade so you wouldn't cut yourself.
The thing I liked about it was the weight:it is about half the weight of a standard 110.What most people didn't like about it was the price:anywhere from $60 to $80 when you could buy a standard 110 for under $30.It apparently didn't sell very well as Buck discontinued it shortly afterward.They did make another titanium handled model that could not be taken down but I don't think that sold very well either.
I used to use mine a lot at work breaking down large cardboard cartons and it performed very well and did not tire my hand out like the much heavier standard 110 did.I did leave off the pocket clip and tool as it was much more comfortable that way and carried it in my pocket;not something you can do comfortably with a standard 110.
EDIT: Here is a pic of the other side showing the tool.

It is!  (The "50" in the middle of the anvil stamp on the ricasso is the tell-tale sign.)

I'll try to get a pic of the opposite side later on.  :)

      I have many Buck knives, and these are just a few! Overall, I would say they are my favorite brand. They make a little of every style of knife! Traditional, modern, tacticool, etc. They are not too much into multitools for some reason though. They have also done a great job at moving most of their manufacturing back to the US. I think about 85% of the knives they make are made here. They are also very reasonably priced! Anyhow, every Buck knife I have ever purchased, US made or not, has been top quality!   :tu:

My only fix blade Buck is this 857. A Walmart special with orange scales.  Next to my 112 slim pro.

Is a good skinner for small game. 

I have also been considering a Vanguard (192?) for a camp knife.

Thank you, as a fixie, it is small enough to be a neck knife fit in a boot with its sheath. Not that I have tried either option.


I pulled out my Canoe (389).  It is a pattern I like almost as much as the Stockman.

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

Hope yours is as good!
