I've been eyeing the Buck 110, for many months now. My first knife I ever had, was a fairly decent buck 110 knockoff, I still have it, and it takes a decent edge. I Purchased the Buck 110 today, after weeks of saving change. I counted it up today, and realised I had enough! My mother asked me if I wanted to go to wal-mart, to go get a new mop with her (Don't worry, I made sure its US made.
). I of course said yes. Afterwhich I asked if we could go to Gander mountain, to look around. I eyed the knife I have been dreaming of for months. I had the clerk take it out of the glass, I purchased it, than away we drove. I have not fully tested this knife to my outdoors standars yet, but have tried some basic things with it, such as carving, and splitting wood.
On first enspection I liked the buck 110. A very large folder (A preference of mine.) And a very heavy knife folded up. I opened the blade, the lock hit loudly into place, making the loud "Thud" of Lockback knives. This knife is a very heavy folder. I like the Sheath that came with the knife, but intend to make a more tradional, handmade knife sheath for it. Most stories I hear about this knife, are about fathers, giving their sons theese knives over 30 years ago.
