Really I’m not a knife nut, however some of you might be aware of my steady pocket knife collection. With that said for sometime I have really wanted a Buck 110. For me this knife is the epitome of classic/vintage pocket knifes and several weeks ago while at a flea market I came upon this particular 110.
The first Buck knife was made in 1902 by Hoyt Buck a blacksmith apprentice. The first knives he made were hand crafted using worn-out file blades as raw material.
The “Folding Hunter” which is the 110′s real name was first introduced in 1962 by Buck. Designed by Al Buck, Hoyt Buck’s son, the knife changed the industry at the time because of its inventive “lockblade” design. The knife single-handedly established Buck Knives as a leader in the knife business.
