    I used to have one of those (with the same sheath) back when I was in Boy Scouts. Loved that knife!

    Wish I could belt carry my 112 or 110 but I would hate to have one confiscated in some bogus liberal knife grab in the name of law and order- both are almost 30!

    Excuse my ignorance, but does the knife on the far left have exchangeable blades?
    The single blades on the left look like they're meant to...

    Any additional information on this model would be appreciated.

    So far I only have been aware of one lockback knife with exchangeable blades:
    The Boker Optima (see link).
    Code:

    Cheers,

    That is the long-discontinued Buck Selector; it does (did) have interchangeable blades. It's been out of productioin for close to twenty years, I think, but you could look for one on auction sites. W.R. Case still makes the very similar XX-Changer, though:

    This is the only Buck I own. Came in very handy, recently, though. I had to go to Boston for a few days last month. Looked up their knife laws. Not surprisingly (since it's Massachusetts), they are very restrictive. Indeed, the only knife I have that is within their maximum blade length is that Buck. So that's what I carried! :)

    I am sorry to say I don’t own any. But did your hubbie bought you a knife with the tip snapped off?

    It is a nice little knife and very sleek. That's good to keep in mind as a travel knife. Don't want to get into trouble and have them "confiscate" my knife...probably would end up in their pocket.

    Yes he did. We found them at a thrift store. We got 8 knives for $10. My husband is going to alter the tip for me so it won't be like that for long.

    Yes I sure did for about $1.25 I can easily fix the tip and that's the plan. I guess some minds don't think of possibilities or practice restoration skills. I'd buy a million of them over again at that price point.

    Nice. 8 knives for $10 is a good deal.

    Well, I maintain my knives myself. But point taken. I would probably regrind my knife if the tip snaps off.

    Since giraffe hooves collects bucks among other knives it was a no brainer I love modifying things as well as bringing things back to life or a new function. There's amazing things that can be done with a can do mind set and energy. Giraffe hooves will utilize this knife once it's finished rather than watching it go to the dump never to be seen again.
