Doesn't anyone just carry an old buck anymore?

    One time I had a Titanium model but never got to use it even though it's lighter than the 110 also the same bulky size. So I let it go.

    I've been looking at the standard 110 but the weight and size are the issue.

    I've been keeping my eyes open for the Buck 186 for 560 XLT-Ti for some time. I have a 110 given to me by my company with the company logo in the handle for my 10 year anniversary. Never used it. It is a large heavy knife, which I don't really mind so much. You just really need a sheath to carry it.

    I seem to love bucks

    I love buck knives. In my collection I have
    the 110 - for in the bush
    the 55 - literally half the 110 - great little lockback
    Summit - My most often carried EDC. The only thing I don't like is the combo blade
    Mantis - Great little tac knife
    2 Redpoints - Nice little beaters
    Bantam - Good Beater (I'll prbably keep it around for my boys when they are older)
    Parallex (1 big and 1 small). - different design, but nice and light
    Vantage - current EDC fave
    Stockman - nice gentleman's knife (a gift)
    Alpha - replacement for the 110
    Bucklite - an old pocketknife to replace the gerber LST I edc'd at the tme.

    I seem to have a strong loyalty to the brand, which I wondered until I had a chance to see my dad's knife collection filled with old Shrades and Bucks. Must run in the family!

    Seriously though, if you are a good shopper, you can easily get a good quality knife for not a TON of cash. Heck, I got the Alpha for a third of the price at a sale at the local Canadian Tire store!

    I carried my Buck 110 in its sheath on my belt for the last three years, I tried to carry other knives I have like Delicas and Griptilians but I always go back to the 110, it feels very solid and the grip is unique. I also carry a Leatherman Skeletol CX clipped in my pocket for small tasks or that situation where the 110 looks scary for some people.

    I was thinking about a Buck back in the 70's. Friends showed me a broken frame lock on one. I got a FSII instead ( Gerber Folding Sporstman II) 35 years later I got my first Benchmade MiniGrip/Grip.

    Love the old Buck 110. I've been using one since I was a kid. Nowadays, I have 3 or 4 of them around, but I only carry one when camping, hunting and other outdoor tasks. I used it to dress multiple deer, squirrel, fish, pheasant, etc., not to mention cutting veggies and such at camp. It's a nice belt knife but bigger than I like for pocket carry. For EDC pocket carry I prefer something smaller.

    For those who don't know you can still pick up a Buck 110 at Walmart like the one pictured for $29. A steel at that price IMO. The nylon case can be carried either horizonally or vertically. Still made in the U.S.A. (the knife that is).

    Great knife, but too heavy for me to EDC in my pocket and I'm not one for sheaths.

    Buck 110 in the right pocket of my jacket.
    I'm looking into buying a few more variations of the 110 and 112.
