It's Old Grey Hare's Fault - yes, there is Buck Love!

Well, when someone questions the level of love for Buck Knives something is going to happen...

Among the knives I have carried and really been fond of was a Buck 110 FG. I'm not sure what happened to it but I have suspicions. If they are true, well, a karmic pox on that individual.

Still, there were remeberings of where I went with that knife and I was drawn to the Buck Knife website...

Did you know they do custom stuff? Well, maybe nothing that needs to be put under glass and gazed at but some of their knives have options that can be selected. A different blade, upgraded handle materials, engraving, perhaps different bolsters, things like that.

It might get a bit more expensive but nothing like a Sebenza.

The fit in finish is very, very nice. The burl, my first exotic-ish wood is quite attractive and this one really is mine! It wasn't until I had it in my hands that I realized I had ordered a large version of a pocket knife I'd carried daily for 30 years, a Buck 501...

I present a Buck 110 FG with Drop Point blade in S30V, Nickle bolsters and Burl grip inserts.

Except I can't type very well and it should have been "Old Grey Hare"...perhaps a Moderator can make an edit?

It's on my belt right now-it's coming on vacation with me and maybe into the deer stand next month...but I'll have the fix blade knifes too.

The lockup is positive and solid and if you close your eyes it feels like a Buck 110 FG but then I look at it and it is too pretty!

Some people object to the weight of the old Buck but it isn't that bad. In fact if I've got a 1911 on the belt I don't even notice the little extra bit...heavy is good sometimes.

Seeing as you blamed Old Grey I'm blaming you. I went to their site and specd out my own custom. Price was $165. Not crazy high. Real close to pulling the trigger.

One question. What is the difference with and without rivets?

I don't know what would hold the scales on the knife without the rivets-you can see them on the old brass bolster 110 (that was my dad's) and my new one both have three, the little 501 has two.

That's about what I paid for mine-like you said, not crazy but a definite kick up from the off the shelf though I could have lived without the engraving on the front bolster it is well done.

And it is pretty...

Thank you, the fact is that I had no idea about their custom shop before your thread!
