    Surely not. But this is another knife. A different option, suitable (and preferable for some; myself included) for other jobs. I plan to get a lightweight 112 when it comes out to carry in pocket for uses like hikes, carry around town, yardwork etc. If I get invited on a moose hunt, it likely wouldn't be the knife I choose.

    I notice that CC is selling the LT and Pro on eBay. They got them pretty quick!

    Holy cow! I just realized this thing is going to be lighter than my Opinel N°10! That's gonna be weird.

    R.E.I. lists the Opinel N°10 at 2.5 oz. But its blade is almost .25" longer. No matter. I'm looking forward to the Buck.

    I've been quoted a number of times in this thread. To elaborate, the reason I appreciate the heft of the 110, is for it's striking force. In an emergency of course.

    Also I end up using it quite a bit to tap on things like those stubborn barrel bolts, on cellar doors. I know it sounds like abuse, but I've never hurt a 110 beyond a couple of dings. They are amazingly tough knives.

    I can see the appeal of a light weight 110, I pocket carry a 111 classic, when I'm dressed up.

    Somebody screwed up somewhere, for that weight to be so far off vs whats being advertised.

    But only in limited runs to limited dealers. This is available to all dealers.

    In my pocket. I have two of the classics, one is nib with it's Sheath. The other I bought cheap with a broken blade and no sheath. It went back to Buck for a blade, and is the one I carry.

    I begged Buck to put a drop point in it just to be different, but they would not.

    I agree. It's basically the same thing you can get from the custom shop for around the same price. You don't have to wait, but you also don't get the personal hand assembly either. For that price, I'd go to the CS and get something other than g-10. But that's just me....

    Titanium is lighter and stronger....1911 for me as well, but a Titanium 110 rides with me often.

    Yes, your right. But I just cannot live with those deep finger grooves on the titanium 110.^ DM

    I got my 110 LT today. It weighs 91.5gm. 91.5 gm/ knife divided by 28.35 gm/ oz. equals 3.23 oz./knife. It should be mentioned that this mineral (fiberglass) reinforced Nylon handle (an engineering plastic) will be much stronger than unreinforced Valox. This is a step in the right direction. I will be modifying this blem and will try to share the results on the Sunday Picture Show. I have little experience drilling and tapping FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic). So results are not guaranteed.
    The blemish is a malformed head on the pivot rivet. I want to put a screw in the pivot, so the blemished part will be removed. 0060EDC4-DEF7-41DF-AE14-DA9258C7A191.jpeg 4DDD675B-1601-4025-819A-E532FE846EFB.jpeg
