    Hello guys! My new Buck 120 General just came home yesterday. It has the Cocobolo DymaLux handle with a brass guard, pommel and a decent sheath. It is hair shaving sharp! It wasn’t easy but I trimmed my beard a little bit with it. The clip point worked pretty good trimming around my mustache.

    I can’t wait to get it clamped up in my WE130. But there’s something in me that doesn’t like sharpening a knife that’s already sharp. I think it is a great deal for $99.95.

    That sure is a beautiful knife, enjoy it in good health.

    I’m more of a folding knife guy and I wanted a Buck 110 with a little character so I ordered the 110 Ultimate Hunter with CPM- 20CV which is very nice but then I just had to have another from SKBlades (the Silver Fox) with micarta scales and CPM 20CV blade. I think the Silver Fox is the ultimate Buck 110 imho.

    Thanks, Brewbear. That Silver Fox looks nice. I’ll get a 110 auto eventually, maybe next month. I think everyone should have at least one decent fixed blade knife though.

    Edit: Oops, I meant 110 auto, not 112.

    I totally agree with you. I do have a Buck 119 fixed blade I bought ages ago but now my eyes are drawn by this https://www.skblades.com/product-page/the-ranger

    That looks nice. I don’t see how they can make them at that price!

    My understanding is that SKBlades works with Buck  Knives and they get fairly small batches with more select materials sold exclusively thru SK Blades.

    It’s a beautiful knife, sir. I like the hollow grind particularly. Large outdoor style knives are hardly a necessity for my suburban life style, but that does not stop me from wanting them!

    They are inexpensive enough to have for in case a situation does arrive where you may need one.

    Yes! That’s why I keep this gem. Yes, that’s Frog Lube clouding the finish of the knife. A2 tool steel is not stainless, so I have to keep it oiled in long term storage. It lives in my knife drawer, awaiting the zombie apocalypse.

    Heads up folks, Stephen, owner of Silver Knights (SKBlades) sent an e-mail to all customers announcing that they will suspend operations for the time being. If there is something you’re interested in, get it now, before they run out.
