    We're going to cruise in the boat down the ICW this afternoon when some out of town friends come over. I've got a traditional pocketknife and my Buck Vantage - really like this Buck - took me 40 years to carry a modern style knife! OH

    Ok, it wasn't today, it was a couple of days ago, but I've been mostly off the grid for the last week. Used this 418 to cut through briars and vines. Also used a chainsaw. What a gosh awful tangled up mess. I needed a sharp machete. Or a flame thrower. I'm impressed with this little knife. Not really the best tool for the job, but it performed admirably :)

    Been carrying the 305 and 309 the past few days, but I am expecting a new knife purchase to arrive any day now.

    Not a Buck ( a green Victorinox cadet), I just meant that I'd be swapping these for my new purchase when it arrives.
    I should have posted these sooner I guess.

    August BOTM 110 headless.I installed a new deep carry pocket clip.It's easier to clip into place and underneath the clip there is more room for the seam on my front pocket of my jeans.

    (tarnished) 2015 standard production 110, joined by two friends.
    (1960's Ulster Barlow, and a "Remington" (no "R" number) canoe, most likely made by Camillus, sometime in the 1990's.
    Please feel free to iggy the friends. I don't have a Buck Barlow, or USA Buck Canoe.)

    Just tarnish on this one, from .... I dunno ... 6 or 8 years? of constant carry, and never introducing it to Never Dull or Brasso.

    Jb,well that's not quite accurate.I simply remove the metal from the tip,which has remained the same,to 1.5" back from the tip.

    In other words there is a slight curve from the tip to 1.5" back and I simply removed that curve.It's a very slight bit of metal but it does make a difference in appearance.

    I hope that made sense.

    My Buck 297 has ended up being my most carried party or around town knife over the years. It fits nice in my watch pocket whereas some knives are too long. And shorter knives just bulk up with my keys down in my pocket which I don't like. If I go hiking or hunting then I change to a different knife.

    My Buck 297 is the red to gold version which I like best. I can't figure out how to post a picture.

    Carried (and used) my Buck 2018 Forum Knife yesterday. Smooth elk makes for an intriguing slab. OH

    I wanted to go light the last couple of days, so I started out with a Case peanut. Then I thought, "Hey, I haven't carried my Buck 309 very much, I'd better go with it." This one is a 1996, found at the local knife shop. The shape of the clip blade has always struck me as slightly odd, not sure why. Maybe it's at least partially due to the flat grind, which doesn't have as much je ne sais quoi as the hollow grind of the peanut. Otherwise the two knives are very similar in many ways, except for one being a "jack" configuration and the other being a "pen" configuration (if I understand those two terms correctly). Anyway, it's gotten a lot of use the last couple of days and has performed admirably!
