Really nice looking sheath, Tom, to put what looks like a treasured & maybe used a little Buck. The company website looks like they want to do quality work, too.

Duke,

I really like Carl's sheaths. The design and tooling is usually very tasteful and not over done. Here's one that the buyer paired up with a Hattori copy of a RMK 5-5. It got me thinking... smile

I'd like to add my 112 that I bought in the PX in Heidelberg in 1981 and carried and used for years.
It was "my knife". The one that started this madness...

That's a beauty, Peter. From its condition, I can tell it was special to you. Looks like the sheath did a good job protecting it.

Those 3 dot 112s are hard to pinpoint the steel type. Could be 440C or 425M. 1980/81 was the time frame that Buck made the switch.

Great looking knife. Out of interest, did you use any conditioner on the case throughout the years?

Thanks, Rod. No conditioner - only natural wear and tear smile My lighting makes it look more shiny as it is in reality.

Not having much knowledge on Buck knives, what is the difference between a 110 and a 112? Is the 112 just a smaller version of the 110?
