Thanks. smile

That knife is probably the only thing I still own from my childhood.

That was the blade where I "learned" how to sharpen blades. I put in many hours working that edge on an arkansas oilstone. Some of it not so smooth, being young and all -- you can see some "stray" marks near the edge.

I snapped the tip and eventually picked up another knife to carry around. The first time I put the new knife to stone to sharpen, I realized that not all knives are as painful to work up to an edge as that old Buck 110 was.

Rob, in the 70s, those Buck blades were difficult to sharpen because they were made of 440C with a semi-hollow grind and a thick, convex edge. Once sharpened, they were "famous for holding an edge". You mentioned that your grandfather gave you the knife in the late 70s. Was it new or did he carry it previously? Do you still have the original sheath? Your knife appears to be a...

Forth Version, Brass Spacer/Spring holder separate piece

Variation 1 (1970-1972)
Stamp: BUCK, U.S.A., Inverted, Left hand, 440C steel.
Blade/Butt rivets: Visible on both sides of bolsters, 2 rear, 1 front.
Inlay rivets: 2 (tiny) or 2 small headed.
Rocker rivet: Brass, maybe headed.
Sheath: Black leather. C.
Packaging: 2 piece yellow box about 2 high-(1), Use and Care leaflet undated-(1) **



My childhood knife was a Buck 112 given to me in 1973 - age 12. Like you, I spent many hours sharpening it. Today, it is still my barn and trail knife.

He had carried it previously. I never had a sheath for it, always carried it in my back pocket. The straight-line dent in the wood near the rear is because of such (sat down on something, most likely).

I'd like to pick up a sheath for it, but it's a low priority.

I had it rebuilt so that I could eventually hand it down to one of my step-children or my granddaughter (child of oldest stepson).

Very nice.

Thanks for the information on the knife.

Picked this one up. 2 dots on each side, which makes it 1981-1986.

Nice stag scales and a sporty sheath....

Hey, that's a beauty, Mitchell. Very nice factory stag before the custom shop opened. I have the same sheath for my 112. Those sheaths were outsourced and made by a local saddle shop. For a production company, Buck has always supplied high quality leather.
