Starting a new thread to keep all the new knife posts together and not clutter up the Late Night thread. Not that there's anything wrong with that.



Scott got my interest in Buck knives rekindled so I acquired a few new (old) ones. Top is a 110, middle is a 112 and the bottom is an 055 (supposed to be a half size 110).

Isn't that called a switch blade and therefore illegal. At least in most states. Or does the word "auto" or automatic get around the switch blade laws. I thought the words spring assist got around the switch blade laws but this is quite spring assisted.:Shrug::Shrug::Shrug:

That’s how I feel. I’ll be driving through several states (including yours) that aren’t friendly to knives or guns in late summer. I’ll be taking my chances with both concealed on my side. But the fact I’m a federal LEO should help matters a little.

Both , then insert the weapon and it will form to it. When doing Gun holsters , wet the leather , then insert the gun mold and let it dry. Then oil just to keep it from drying out. Too much will soften the leather to loose its shape.

I've never done this so would like a little bit more info.



Just how wet do you get the leather? Soaking like submerged in oil or what?

How long does it take to dry?

How do you get the depressions like the trigger guard and trigger. Some vacuum or something?

And confirm, it is neatsfoot oil and not water to do this forming and drying.

Any kind of neatsfoot? I hear some swear by Fiebing's for some reason so wonder if you have a preference too.



Anything else you might suggest for a first timer would be appreciated. Sorry to bug you on what you might think is common sense but I've just never done anything with leather other than use it. Well, except for my old baseball glove and that I did use neatsfoot oil to shape a pocket for the ball. But I don't remember how wet I got it or how long it took to dry or any of the particulars involved to get that pocket formed. And it was heavily used immediately after anyone so not really sure what I did had anything to do with the end pocket anyway. That was like 62 years ago or more when I was somewhere around 12 or 14 when I got my first new glove. A glove lost in time too.

1/4Ē leather is used , a model of the weapon is needed , plastic or wood. Childís toy gun. Coat the model with wax so it doesnít stick to the wet leather. Warm water soaking with the model in will emboss it using your fingers

When the leather drys , it will be stiff and molded. Cut out whatís not wanted while the model is still in.

use automotive leather cleaner , paste, to keep it from drying out . Using oil on embossed leather will get soft and you will loose the embossing !!

BTW, before starting , the two pieces or leather must be sewn together loosely. Use the model weapon as a tight fit. After the molding is done , a final sewing is done to its shape. Yes a comercial sewing machine is needed .

Needsfoot oil is used on leather only if you want it soft and plyable , Re baseball gloves , knife sheaths .

Thanks very much. I was thinking it almost had to be water you use. Do you have a particular 'automotive leather cleaner , paste" you've found works better than others? Or what kind do you currently use. I can see now how people ruin a good holster by putting oil on it thinking they are keeping it from drying out. I don't normally use leather preferring Kydex due to the humidity here and not wanting a dampish holster ruining a gun with rust when stored in my closet. Kydex is just so much safer in that regard.

I do have a knife sheath I'd like to try this on. I bet you use some kind of drier to shorten the drying process. I'll have to let mother nature do the best she can knowing humidity is my enemy and spring and humidity are just around the corner.

So Frank...you do your own leather work? That holster looks really good!

Funny story.

35 years ago , I was at a range. I admired the guy next to me had this fancy holster on. Got talkin , and he was a local shoemaker. Remember them ? Asked him about making me one for my 38s&w. He invited me to to watch the process and learn me how to do.

You need a lot of comercial machines if your to make them , sewing , grinders , cutters, buffers ect. Unfortunately he passed on a year or two after that. Those old timers knew there stuff. But he taught me a lot during the process while making it.

He probably was the guy that put the heel taps on my boots back in the late 50’s-60’s. Yup, I was one of those cool �� guys making noise in the high school hall ways .

Just one of those things left embedded into this pea brain left.

The old time craftsmen took a lot of knowledge with them when they left the earth, skills that are gone forever. My grandmother could sew, make beaded purses, reupholster furniture and redo the old wire frame lampshades. Today everything is 'Throw Away'; stuff is made so that you cannot repair it or it costs more to fix then what you paid for it when you first purchased it. I learned a lesson on that with laptops, buy commercial/business grade ones they're easier to work on, my last consumer grade one died.

As for knives I don't have collector ones, except the Chinese Army knife from Dollar Tree.

Bought this in 1975 ... it does not swing open it slides straight out of the handle ... with practice ... it's pretty fast ... :D

In the case, which I don't use to carry it ... it's more of a pocket knife.

82111

Closed, see the knurled part on the back of the blade, just push down, slide that forward, it opens.

82115

Starting to open

82112

Almost Open

82113

Open, at this point it locks, push on the lock on the right side bottom to slide it back.

82114

Case and knife, the knife doesn't say buck, just the case.

82116

First Edition, 383 of 500.

82117

I bought this at a Harley Dealer ... who knows if it is actually a Buck, but the nylon case that came with it says it is, and I'm pretty sure it had Buck paperwork, but 45 years is a long time to remember.. Very light weight, easy to pocket cary.

By loosening the case (gently pry the halves apart, it's just a press fit), you can push down on the knurled button, flick, it's open. I keep it a little snugger, still pretty quick to open and safer to carry.

Man, that was tougher than I thought ... One hand for knife ... one hand to video ... I'm out of practice, and I have a pretty sore thumb (you can see the owie in the video), but it still fairly quick and could be done in your pocket. This is the best of the batch. But at least you can see the mechanism work, no springs, just thumb power.

As a side note, tried to look up the "model#" on the net, nada, sent an email with pics to buck, asking for info to their history department. We'll see.

That's pretty cool. I've never seen one like that before. Is that your every day carry?

I carry it most days ... there are places of course I can't carry it ... the VA comes to mind.

My only complaint, and it may be just me. It's SS ... I wish it was carbon steel. I have an old case knife a Boatswain Mate gave me many years ago that is carbon steel, it does rust if it is put away wet, so I keep a light oil on it, but, it is so easy to keep an edge. The SS just doesn't hold it right, but, as I said, I might not be sharpening it right. Maybe I should research that ... LOL. Don't get me wrong, it's sharp enough for McGver to build a strip mall out of milk crates with it.

But, the carbon steel blade of the Case is scary sharp. I've cut myself with it and not even known I did ... kind of like a razor blade or sheet of paper ... :blush: .. and it just stays that sharp. I dropped it one day while working on a pool and cracked the wooden handle, so I retired it, it has some sentimental value to me.

The Buck was purchased when I bought my first New Harley (thought I needed it for my image, now, just don't care about my image :AGGHH:), so it has some sentimental value too. Never had to use it for self defense, but, used it for every other thing, cleaning nails, cutting tape, cutting meat ... LOL ... maybe that's why it doesn't stay sharp????

So here's my Buck 110 Boone and Crockett Club- Ebay find. It was a little dirty and didn't play nice inside the tin during shipping (insert was trashed) but it cleaned up nice. Came with the paperwork and nylon sheath as well. Unfortunately the collectors tin was dented and scratched from the shipping so it's in the recycling.

From the date stamp it's a 2010 model, second edition ThumbUp

And then on display is my 91' 501 and 87' 309 82153

Who's making sheaths for you? That OTF looks interesting to me but no way would I carry that puppy without some kind of sheath. Sure doesn't have to be much but I'm just not finding any. Just started looking though too. So I may find something that would work.

Nay Leatherworks off Etsy.

Well, did a little bit more digging into the mystery dot ...Found this on a knife forum:

"vintage Buck 527 Treasury folding pocket knife with a rare early transition one dot after the "527" indicating 1985 manufacture"

So I'm not a 100% sure, nothing noted as to the above on the Buck sight.

This one is brown, but also found it was manufactured in different color variations.

Tiny... under 3" closed but very neat little knife indeed. Looking to close the deal after work, just didn't know how valuable it might be and wanted to avoid getting ripped off

Finally got around to taking a picture of my new addition, I had to negotiate with the owner through the consignment shop. Wound up paying $10 more than I wanted, but for $30 still isn't bad considering others like it are being sold for more on Ebay.

On that note, he has a couple of additional pieces there that I like, but asking price is rather high.

I put a deposit down to hold them until I can negotiate a bundled deal.

1- now that I have my sheath can the knife be stored in it long term or do you keep them separate? I haven't had a knife big enough to do so until now.

2- just wanted to see what you were using to clean and oil your knives with.

Mine aren't used much and they get wiped down after handling...and oiled with nano oil if needed

Nice 527 with a Rosewood handle :clapping:Randall.

If the sheath has a snap flap, (leather sheaths) use Lexol #2 leather cream on the outside , put a piece of electrical tape over it on the inside. Prevents from leaving a mark in storage , re getting green or a circle mark on the wood.

Use any gun oil . Just wipe with a film , same with the moving parts.

I got out my Dad's Boy Scout knife and cleaned it up a bit. Afraid do anything to the sheath.

It's a Kinfolk. I never heard of them before, so I looked them up. In business from 1920 to 1957 and an affiliate of Case knives. This is called an Outer's Style Boys Knife. Sold during the depression for $1.50.

My estimates that my Dad had this somewhere between 1934 and 1940 (his teen years). The catalog shows that the blade should have 5/8" longer than it is. He either used the heck out of it, or broke the tip at some point.

Something I learned is that the artwork is hot stamped in the Delrin then inked to look like scrimshawing...and this artist, Frank Giorgianni did most of the early artwork for the Schrade Scrimshaw series knives.

Case does make good knives. The only Case I have is the commemorative trapper I posted before.Of course that could change after I see my friends husbands collection. :Shrug:


I'm anxious to see what might be hidden away in that collection.



I got the pictures of my friends husbands' collection today. :gah: 75 in all. What a set. From military K-Bars to a bunch of Case and Bucks, down to novelty knives.

There are about a half dozen that I'm really interested in. We're going to get together next week so I can drool on them in person.

The oosik handled lock blade was made by a guy here in East Texas. My first wife got it for me as an anniversary gift. Lost the wife; kept the knife; life is good! The little wooden handle hunter was built by a guy in Colorado. A saleslady went there on vacation & brought it back. It's made out of a saw blade. It's not an expensive piece but looks old school.

I've got a double lock blade Buck with the lock releases in the center of knife. Blades open on each end. I must have it hide pretty well. I'll have to go thru the gun safe to locate it. I got a bunch of cheaper off brands that was given to me for Christmas & such. People think they are the perfect present for men, could be right!

What do you guys use to put a good edge on a new knife so you can then put a really sharp on with a fine stone? I got one the other day that you could ride to China on and new get cut. It isn't even close to having an edge on it. It almost looks like I need to use a grinding wheel to get close but surely that can't be. So what do you use to get an edge that be honed in?

Anything Chinese has a 20 degree edge. American is 14-18 degrees.

I use a electric two stage sharpener on stainless steel , as it doesnít hold a edge. Plus any SS blade knife is cheep. Carbon steel , use a good hand water stone , and work it. Takes time but well worth it .

I tried to carry a Kershaw knife similar to that one and the second day, somehow, it came open on me. I was working picking up all kinds of stuff and I'm sure something brushed up against it, but in my pocket I had no idea it would take such little effort to get it to open. When I wanted it open out of my pocket I had trouble fumbling around to get it in the correct position to flick the lever. So I was totally surprised when I felt something pointy partially out of my jeans pocket. So no more knives like that for carry for me without a sheath.

You guys got some nice knives. I decided to look for my old hunting knife I carried just in case I got a deer. Back then a knife was just a knife. Took me for ever to get an edge on this puppy. Could almost shave with it at one time which lasted about two seconds. Don't if it's worth 2Ę in todays world but it worked for me back in the mid 60's. It was used when I got it. Probably some Sears thing but maybe y'all know more about this old dude. I ain't a good picture taker as you can see.

I think it says RH then inside an oval PAL then far right -36 and under Made In USA. Not sure if 36 or 38 though as it's difficult to tell.

Who knew? Well you did Randall and thanks very much for the link. Mine is pitted some from being in the sheath I guess for so many years. I tried to buff some of it up but sounds like that might be some of the Parkerization so probably didn't help what ever value it had but that's not why I had it anyway. It did it's job on one deer.

I couldn't hack the taste of that long legged rat so never went after anymore. Rabbits and pheasant is more to my taste so mine saw a lot of blood which most likely got in the sheath as well. Interesting that the one in the link as a hole near the point as mine does not. Seems like a smart thing to have added to my way of thinking.

And no, there's no way I was going to sell it anyway. I was just curious if anyone knew anything and BINGO, Randall came to the rescue. Again, thank you very much for the info. Probably shouldn't have buffed it up but had to to read the maker. Done now so oh well. Maybe when all my stuff is sold off after I'm dead, someone can make some money off it as I sure won't. I though I found it a garage sale but maybe it was my dad's, I just don't remember. This getting old is not easy. I forget things if I go to sleep now. Oh well.:) :) :)

Randall, I sent you something on the Queen knives. Looks like the one with a blade on each end is around 1958-60. Let me know if I'm close.

I need to get off my butt and take some pix of the other knives I got from "the collection".

Got it! thanks Bill, yep you are correct on that 85293

I was drawn to the color and look of the bone it's very hard to find and I was lucky to get it.

The other is the one was the produced afterwards and most associated by the Winterbottom name.

85294

This I was told it dated late 60's early 70's as there is only the blade etching and no tang stamp. The gentleman that sold me this one also sold me a 3 blade version but it hasn't arrived just yet...I will post when it does.

Went and pulled a picture of the tang stamp for it from his email 85295

"Small Q" 1971 transition stamp

Said both purchased around the same period

now that we're quarantined to the house it's going to be a lot harder for someone not to notice all these little padded envelopes getting ready to start rolling in.

I spoke with my friend and am planning to go by and check out a few more knives from her.

A Kabar hunting knife (not the military combat type), and a German hunting knife. If I have any money left, maybe another Case. Her list shows a Queen also. There a few stilettos, but they might be too high.

Well from the pictures I've seen there's still some really nice knives there. Wish I could look through them...most the time the collector type knives are jumped on, so it's hard to find a good brand at a decent price.

Didn't do bad ...my other Queen will be here tomorrow, and he sold me 2 Ka bar's from his collection. In total Ive got 8 coming, 1 offer pending and 3 more watching...

Like I said... really, really bad.

All together I spent under $150 shipped not including the ones not already committed to.

A whole lot cheaper than I did. And I didn't have to pay shipping. 2 made up half the cost with the other nine making up the other half.

I have a copy of her master list of 99% of the knives. PM me what you are looking for and I'll see what is available.

I'm going by Monday or Tuesday hoping that Virginia doesn't make a mandatory lockdown. We need to go to Sam's Club and her house is on the way.

I've already go the stink eye from my wife. But I thought I had a good excuse. I cannot for the life of me find my old Buck that I carried daily for years. And yes, I looked on my hip just in case. My wife says she's seen it but she also hasn't found it. That thing used to take a nice edge. I sure wish she would find it. I've emptied all the drawers I thought it might have accidentally got put in. I wanted to start carrying it again darn it. It was/is a darn good knife. I don't remember what model but it can with it's own leather sheath. Hopefully she'll find it.

Will do! ThumbUp.

With me it's going to be a $ factor, I've been watching auctions and doing deals for best offers and emailing the seller to ask if they would consider a lower price. I've also been looking at the ones with bad pictures, or descriptions. The person usually has no attachment or just doesn't know what they have.

My average sweet spot is around $20-30 or less mainly, the most expensive $50-55 and in between.

Most expensive was $113 on a 70's vintage case, but I put that on a no interest card...that's the advantage of using PayPal.

Here's the other Queen that came in today. I took an umbrella with me on the walk to the mailbox.

It may be just me but the texture of the scales is slightly different than the other. Could be just the age of it :Shrug:

I haven't had a chance to take pix of the new kids on the block and still have more of the first haul to post. Here are two Bucks. A custom pre 1985 model 500 with elk antler scales and a cool sheath. The other is a 112 AUTO from 2001. I thought that was a new thing for Buck but this one is 19 years old.
