Funny using your pocket knife to cut up a steak. I think I embarrass my wife and kids every time I pull my Buck, Spyderco, Benchmade, whatever knife I鈥檓 carrying, from my pocket and cut my meat at a restaurant馃槀. Damn restaurant knives are typically dull, serrated pieces of crap that can鈥榯 cut warm butter. I remember using my Spyderco to cut my porterhouse at Del Friscos one evening. A couple at a table next to us looked at me like I had 3 arms. Made me laugh on the inside.

Yeah I thought the same thing. Reminds me of an old quote about the "farmers knife".
Beware the farmers knife... It is used for peeling apples, cleaning fingernails and castrating a calf.

My first Buck folding hunter was so impressive to me that I bought another and kept it new and unsharpened in its original box. The price sticker was $16.00, came with a lapel button with the price on it. I still have the original receipt for $12.00 (discount, you know) from Atlas Sports. The first generation came with a suede leather sheath. Later ones were hard leather.

Back when I was around 10 I asked Santa Claus for a 110. I got it for Christmas that year. I was so proud of it that I was scared I鈥檇 loose it or something would happen to it and hardly carried it. But I鈥檇 take it out of its sheath and just sit and admire it.

I still have it today 50 plus years later in almost new condition 馃榿

I seem to be in the same situation many of you are. I鈥檝e got the same knife when I was young. I liked it so much I bought one for my granddad many years ago. When he passed the knife was given back to me and I still have it.

This reminds me of the Case yellow fishing knife I purchased as a teen. It was so wonderfully beautiful I'd use something else before it. Unfortunately my tackle box was stolen out of the garage in my first home. I later got a replacement which I keep boxed up and look at from time to time. But it's not quite the same...

Our family friend and elk hunting outfitter gave me one when I guided for him in my early 20s man that thing has quartered and skinned some elk, the blade is probably 2/3 of what it used to be from sharpening. Our friend is no longer around, but I still carry that knife and his memory in my elk pack. I mainly use the replaceable blades anymore. But I still have that ol buck if the new ones ever let me down. Solid knives!!!

I have 3 110's right now. A "normal" hunter, a lightweight and the newest drop point version. Would like to pick up a automatic one of these days.
My favorite Buck knife is a 500. Bought my first in the early 80's loved it.
Usually have three knives on me daily. SOG cash card, SOG neck knife on a chain and a Ontario Rat1 clipped on a pocket.
