Question about a Buck folder

I have had this pair of Buck folders just about forever. I've always wondered why the 112 doesn't have the thumb cut in the blade for opening. Any ideas?

That's interesting. My 112, and I think everyone I have seen in person has it. My 110 and 55 knives also have them. Where and when did you get yours?

My grandpa gave them to me about 30 years ago. I've never seen another one without the cut either. I searched online but the results were all for knives without the finger grooves, not the groove in the blade.

Buck uses the term "nail notch" to describe the groove. When I searched using that term, I found a post from another forum that stated the Ranger(112) was introduced in 1972 without the groove. The groove was added around 1980-81.

Wow, never seen a 112 without the nail notch. Nice to have one without it! Thanks for posting. I would not change it but they make thumb studs for the 112/110's

Yep, I'm going to leave it alone. The thumb stud would be nice but I was thinking it would be a great candidate to convert into an automatic.
