Had a Buck folder for nearly 25 years, still sharp. Anyone else have the classic?
Yes, indeed. Had one since the 1980s.
Though I am not sure where it is right now...............
Yep, just as useful as the day I bought it 27 years ago.
A good tool, but a poor weapon as it is too slow to open.
I moved on to Spyderco clipits a long time ago.
It goes with me every hunting trip, has skinned many deer and turkey and still as sharp as it was the day I got it.
Yes, I do carry the Buck but not everyday like I used to but thats mostly due to my job. Mine is also 25+ yrs old like Kahrcarriers BUT I know where mine is right now!!
I have two. The 110 and 501 models. Both single blade locking. Also have two case knives that i like as well.
I had the same one in the picture there! interesting story on how I got it.
I was at scout camp one summer, and they had nice hot tents for us that were set up on raised pallets to keep them level and off the ground. I accidentally dropped my wallet through a crack in the "floor". When I went crawling under to get it, I found the knife! some unfortunate camper the week or two before must have dropped it by accident. His loss, my gain
Later on I got chewed out for crawling in dark spaces in rattler country. I hadn't even thought of that, I was like 11 years old and there weren't poisonous snakes where I lived.
A couple years later, my dad asked to borrow it for chores. I never got it back, but at least I know where it is!
I have more Buck knives than any other manufacture. My first hunting knife, was a 110 still have it and use it often. I have 5 or 6 others, well probably more like 10 other Bucks, now that I think about it!
I have lots of them, I just don't carry them.
I never cared for the steel in Buck knives. Too hard to sharpen, won't hold an edge for long. Wish I could as they're US-made and just up the road in Idaho.
I have a Buck 110 folder I was given for my 16th birthday I carry it every time I hit the woods.
I also have a Buck Vanguard I found in a junked vehicle. It was like new, it is now my hunting knife and has been for over 15 years.
I have another large fixed blade I take camping if we are roughing it.
I miss my Nighthwawk that was stolen by a family member.
Darn good knife.I skinned many squirrels with that knife.
they dont have the best steel , but they have a darn good heat treat process,
Ive never had an issue with sharpening or staying sharp with buck knives, ive even used one for cutting cardboard boxes down which we all know wrecks knife edges..
I have mine. I also have the smaller one. Great memories.
Had mine many years ('70's?) only carry it hunting now.
Bought thumb studs that attach to blade with allen screw for mine.Works perfect.They fit a number of folders.Have one on each of my Buck 110s and 112s.
I put a buck lite in the camera bag last weekend. because it's sharp !
Yes I still do. They're great knives. I've got 4 other of their straight
A Buck folder isn't really considered a self-defense weapon. It's a tool
just like you said. You really can't compare the two for a self defense
