I've always had an affection for the Buck folding hunter, (110) types. Top is a 110 that I can't remember how long I've had. It got stolen once and the "Boys in Blue" got it back for me. next is a Bucklight that was an EDC for about 8 years. Third is a 501 that I lost on my sailboat and found it after about five years. Cleaned it up on a wire wheel. Just couldn't chuck it. Last is an uncle Henry Schrade that never got carried although it is a perfect pocket size.
Back in about 1966 I worked at a Ford dealership for about $60 a week. A friend there and I would buy $3-4 Case knives from the local hardware store. We were "Knife guys" back then.
One day a friend of his who had just gotten back from Viet Nam came in. The guy had a black pouch on his belt and pulled out a Buck 110. Man, that was the most awesome knife I had ever seen!! I wanted one, but just couldn't see shelling out all of $17 for one. That was alot of bread back then!! Still a knife freak after all these years.
They are all cool, great thread, Tony.
