Yes, a great video! smile

The first time I saw 110 in 2005 on the market.
Then I did not earn much, and forgot about it.
My second acquaintance with the knife started on forum in 2009 -
I found pictures of him on the Internet and began searching.
I found topic on 320 pages. The first message in the topic:

Quote:
By Dinger (Haifa, Israel). 08/16/2008.
----------------------------------------------------------------
With this knife I have of recollection from the childhood itself. Small prehistory:

Once, very long time ago, my grandfather obtained this knife into the gift, from his American friend, with whom they met in Elba, distant 1945.

1964, Khrushev start his effort to cultivate wheat in Kazakhstan wild soil, entire world in great wonder and foreign journalists arrive to illuminate this the creation of the thought of agriculture. And the American, who in the civil life began to work as photo journalist, completely randomly meets his old friend on this virgin soil. Gone out of mind from this encounter, they entire night gulp local home-brew alcohol and recall fellow soldiers.

With the parting the American obtains from the pocket knife and gives to my grandfather, after adding that this knife - very cool and is made in America. Grandfather removes watches from his wrist and gives with the words “Moscow watch factory!” They parted on that, after being embraced and after taking leave. So having been encountered then never…

… Tom Walker die in six years, after car accident…

Through several years I was born. We they lived then at other end of the motherland, and at the every summer break I was sent into Kazakhstan, to the grandfather.

I saw for the first time this knife, when I was six years old. And since then, each summer, I dreamed him to get. I come up with many child schemes in order to secure the desired gift, but grandfather was inexorable. He carry it with himself, uses it all the time for everything, but never give it to me.

It must confess, I stole it one time. And then I for the first time understood that the knives have a soul. I came running to the friends, took out knife and began to brag. It swung it, perceiving pleasant gravity in the hand, and swing it to the fact that the knife very beautifully and tenderly cut my hand. Wound was not too deep, but the blood gushed out. It was not terribly, but I accurately placed knife on the place, and since then treat it with a lot of respect. It already acquired to its owner and somehow it did not hurry from it to part. And it left to me thin scar on the hand forever as reminding, that the knives do not love rotation foolish with them…

Knife served to grandfather entire remained life. Twice saved his life, one time - from the gangs and then - from the mad dog. And never it was lost, honestly serving it as faith and truth…

Two months ago of my grandfather died...

On his request knife was placed it into the coffin with him. So it remained to guard him forever…

Yes, the story had impressed me. But the second time I put 110 aside.
Then, starting in 2012 I took them several different - standart and
two 560 titanium, but then sold them - it was a pity to use.
Store in drawer I have not yet matured.
In 2014 Buck published a commemorative version - Lochsa, standart 110
with medallion on scales and a few series for world outside USA,
as far as I know. This information should be checked.

These knives were quickly sold out. Here, a few months ago I saw
on sale in the forum that was looking beginning with 2014.
Nice correspondence with the seller, and he sent me a knife.
I wonder what he lives 120 km away from me, in the nearby town smile
And finally, yesterday, I was able to take camera.

You're welcome, Mike. Glad you enjoyed it.

Snake, that's a good looking custom 110. Buffalo scales?

Thanks Duke! That's a fun video.

Snake, I see that it is Dymondwood now. Looks great with the nickel silver frame and black sheath.

Rob,

I enjoyed your letter as much as seeing Buck's repair job. Now, you have the best of both worlds - your original childhood handle and Buck's famous Bos heat treated blade. smile
