Not That One Yet, But This One Below
Fall has finally appeared in the valley and with it comes not only the changing of the leaves and temperatures but the changing of the outdoor mindset.
When the first frost hits, the game of choice moves from the water to the wooded areas. So whether you are after anything from squirrels to deer, good tools are essential.
History Of The Buck Knife
Buck knives are an American icon and staple almost as much as apple pie. They are time tested and proven in the field and everywhere else a knife is needed in the outdoors.
In the 1960s Buck introduced the 110, a 3 3/4 inch blade folder. It is stout feels good in the hand and is up to any practical task you ask of it. I have used mine for a variety of game and it is a pleasure to use every time. As for deer, not only does it make skinning a breeze but I have no issue using it when processing the animal.
Also from the 60s came the Buck knife 112 which is slightly smaller overall, yielding a 3″ blade. It still has the same aesthetics as the 110 and also capable of the same tasks.
I prefer the 112 over the 110 for smaller game and for more of an everyday carry knife. But I am hard pressed when asked which is my favorite. In my opinion, both knives are equally great.
As for my personal recommendation between them, my first response is it’s a good idea to have both. Of course I realize that they may not be possible for some. So if you have smaller hands, the 112 will be a better fit. And the opposite goes for the 110, this would work well for those with larger hands.
More May Be Better In The Outdoors
Over the years I have noticed other knife companies are becoming similar with the motto, “you just can’t have one”. The Buck knives are no exception. I have more models of knives from Buck and other companies which I’ll be letting you know about in the near future. So be sure to check back each week. As always please feel free to ask question, leave a comment or let me know what you think about the tools mentioned.
Enjoy the outdoors.
