Pat, sorry for the late reply: Michael is perfectly right, of course. The ones he puts up for sale usually don't last long on his site but you should contact him directly and discuss styles and sizes with him. He's a real nice guy to deal with and the wait isn't half as bad as you would think wink

That's what I think I'll do. He has many examples on his site and one in particular caught my eye. Thanks.

It so happened that my GAK 108 really liked my friend
and I gift it to him. He is very happy smile

From that moment I went through a lot of different folding
knives - Microtech Socom, Sebenza 21, Dozier folder Nessmuk,
Victorinox 111 mm Sentinel, Puma Game Warden 972,
Pro-Tech GodSon, Opinel #8, Higonokami, Soviet folding
knives (several pieces, whose name you do not know),
Benchmade 531 and 552, Spyderco Paramilitary CPM-M4
and AFO II FAMILY, AG Russell Barlow and other.

Now I have them all sold, besides soviet "kolhoznik",
I'll just leave it for collection. Previously, before collapse of USSR,
they were made in large quantities, cost,
in terms of today's money ~ $ 0.8-1.5.
For high-quality storage, I filled it with engine oil
and wrapped in tracing paper.

Currently I use a knife Shirogorov 806.
Very good knife - very comfortable in the hand,
Blade 105 * 4 mm from hand forged X12MF steel,
titanium frame and very reliable Axis lock.
Weight 132 gram (4,65 oz).

Price is absolutely inhuman, but the Chinese
are doing fine replicas $ ~20-100 depending on steel.

You never know if a knife is going to be a steady favorite until you try it out of a while. Since I purchased it in June, I have been carrying this Buck 301 much more than expected. It has really grown on me. Not too large, not too small. I love the selection of blades, especially the sheepsfoot.

There certainly is some truth in this vintage Buck advertisement... smile

Tom, I have always like the 3 blade Stockmans. The first knife I bought at the PX when I joined the Air Force was a Buck 303. The 303 is the smaller version of your 301, the third blade on the 303 is more of pen knife, rather than a true spey blade like on your 301. Mine has been to hell and back, but it still resides in my user drawer as a old favorite.

Eric, the 303 is real popular on the Buck forum. Like mine, yours is Camillus made with 440A blades. Nice knife. Thanks for the photo!

Thanks Tom, I like your 301 better, if the PX would have had the larger 301 in stock back in 1980, I would have bought the 301 instead. Unfortunately Ft Meade did not have the nicest AAFES.
