My little Buck multi-tool collection.
« on: April 10, 2021, 06:42:28 PM »
I thought I would share my Buck collection. I have a little bit of everything...and that goes for Buck as well. All of these are now discontinued as far as I am aware.

1.Bucktool 350.

Take the larger model and shrink it and add tweezers. Include an annoying rubber sheath that makes you strugle to get the tool out...and you have the 350 in a nutshell. Very cute design overall if not all that useful due to its liliputen size.

2. Bucktool 355 "Bucklite".

The medium tool in the series that did not feature a locking mechanism other than the old school tool retention setup.

3. Bucktool 360.

The larger of the family that came with locking tools and a locking mechanis that is rather unique (somewhat flush largish buttons 1/3 of the way to the pliers)...but then much of the old Bucktool series was and still is unique to this day.

Here is a comparison photo of the Bucktool 355 and the 360.

4.  Buck Summit.

A multi-tool knife that I bought thinking it was related to the X-Tract family.

5. Buck Fin.

The X-Tract with scissors.

6. Buck X-tract 730.

20210410_093715A by Chako, on Flickr

The X-Tract series features a one handed solution in that all tools could be easily accessed with one hand. More akin to a knife than the older Bucktool series.

7. Buck X-Tract 731 LED.

Same great knife and design with an LED attached to one of the scales.

A good selection  of Buck MTs there  :tu:

Has anyone ever figured out why Buck chose to fit the full size regular BuckTool 360 with a fully serrated blade AND a partially serrated blade as well ?   I could never understand why they didn't have a straight/plain (ie non-serrated) blade to complement the full serrated blade.

Very nice collection Chako  :like:

That file/chisel on the 360 is intriguing !

It looks to me as if they simply exchanged "one" tool with a fully serrated blade, and left the rest as is.
Did they not produce a fully plain edge blade?
Was it simply easier to build that way?  :dunno:

I wish I knew the answer to that. My knowledge about Buck multi-tools is limited.

Things like this make me think my collection is a little out of hand. I was looking for another multi-tool today when I came across this new in box BO BuckTool 360. I recall buying it on Manitoulin Island 4 or 5 years ago and simply forgot I had it or even where I had stored it.

I fear I may have a few more surprises hidden in the collection. It truly is a first world problem to be certain...but it is one of the hazards and a sure sign one possess too many things.  :facepalm:

I think Buck is out of the multitool business these days. All the above models are now discontinued...as far as I know.
