Those look really supernice. And with the nice heft of those Bucks, I bet that they open with "authority"!
I've been thinking about acquiring one....for a while. So, do ya like em?

I'll let Coach answer for himself, but the Buck forum guys love the new factory auto. They say that the action gets smoother and smoother the more you open it, but apparently the redesigned 110 auto sheath scratches the bolsters due to the tight fit.

I like them real well. I occasionally carry one of the 112s. I can put an edge on them that is scary sharp.

By the way Duke, I was in your part of the woods back in August. We went to the Rockerham County Fair in Harrisonburg.

Rockingham. Can't spell.

I don't know how many deer and hogs I've dressed with my old 110.

My Dad & I used to listen to the Dallas Cowboys on the radio and sharpen our knives. Good memories! I miss my Dad every day.

These auto 110s & 112s are same quality in my opinion. Need to keep them clean in addition to sharp.

The Buck 110 was THE knife that got me to be a "knife guy". Back in 65 a GI back from Nam had a brand new one on his belt and showed it to me. I handled it and was it was awesome. $17.50 was too rich for my wallet being 19 years old and taking home $60 a week but I never forgot the quality and heft of that beauty. Have loved fine knives ever since. It's nice to see the quality of them hasn't changed over all these years.

Pat,

The Schrade LB7 is the one closest to the 110 and is what got me started as my first purchased knife back in '82. I carried it on many hunts. Years later I found a 110 in a yard sale for $10, cleaned it up and gave it to my buddy who just started hunting with me. He still uses it today. Both are great folders. Sadly, Schrade isn't what it used to be but I think Buck quality is still great.

I do not own a Buck, although I am tempted. But I do own a Scrade LB7 ( or 5) and I do carry it everyday.
From what I read, and you guys say, Buck 110 are just as tough and useful.

So......I see three well known, highly respected Charter Forum members discussing Schrade LB7's and not one picture. What are our new members to think??......
Pictures please, Gentlemen.

Well Duke now that you mention it...
Didn't want to steal the thread. So here's my Schrade LB7. It's been used, sharpened to a razors edge, & bolsters polished. Shrined in my display case.
