    Okay, good to know. I wasn't sure if they were the actual thing and ahead of everyone else or if they were meaning ebony dymondwood . I might order one from there if they don't start showing up at some of the usual local dealers. Thanks

    Has anyone found any Bladeforums dealers that have the ebony 110s in stock yet? None of the normal sites I check list them yet, only dymondwood still. I’m about to buckle and order straight from Buck.

    I think ordering from Buck would be the most assured way of getting the ebony you want...unless you can wait and be sure that an online dealer has and will ship you an ebony. Maybe a call to your favorite asking to have one picked out for you is possible. Preston

    I usually purchase a couple of 110’s at Walmart every year, but wait until the last year clears out which is 2018. Depending on how many tons of 110’s they have in the Warehouse will depend on when i get my stock ebony 110’s. I will still get a 112FG in ebony from Buck just waiting for the :eek:wife’s :eek:boycott to lift. :D

    I wonder if they'll start using ebony on their other lines like the Buck 55 soon...

    I certainly hope so. Though i still like the artificial(looks real)brown grainy look my 110’s have always had.

    Just went to the local big box store to buy mouthwash and ended up leaving with this beautiful 110. I’ll take some better photos in daylight tomorrow.

    AVID LEVEL?? I just thought they meant DAVID LEVEL! Just a misprint....
    Really what does AVID mean anyway?

    Looked up the definition of AVID. Kinda explains it as i have a keen interest in collecting buck knives. I show enthusiasm in collecting Buck knives. :):thumbsup::thumbsup::D

    So... I was at the locally owned sporting goods store about an hour ago to pick up some new hammock straps and thought I'd see if they had any new knives in. I'm sure glad I did!

    This bad boy is definitely a keeper and my hope is that it becomes an heirloom to hand down. Excellent job Buck!

    I am truly blown away with the quality of this 110. The ebony wood is beautiful. The lock up is solid. Even the leather sheath is nice. I’ve bought $100 even $200 folders not as nice as this and this was only $40. Excellent job, Buck!
