Folding hunters are good for field dressing and skinning and all around chores. At around 5" closed they may be too big to be comfortable in most pants pockets, but carry nicely in a belt sheath, and i usually have them in backpacks, truck console, etc. One blade or two. New or old. Whatcha got?

Here are a couple of Buck 110's, a clip point and a drop point.

I have a 110 and 112 and prefer the 112 better but both are great knifes.

I have the great Titanium 560, one of the best knives for me in those salt marshes. Unfortunately, the titanium plant that supplied the titanium for the scales burnt down so it is obsolete.

1972 Buck 110......the sheath has been modified over the years. :-)

Bought it when Ray Scott opened the B.A.S.S outdoor store in Montgomery.

I got a Buck 112 for my 16th birthday in 1972, been carrying it since. Not that I'm parting with it, but it turns out it was a first production run 112, 3 rivets and the upside-down logo.

I have a bunch, when I see an old beat up one at a flea market I just buy it. The. Lean it up, good to use or trade for something else. I will put some up shortly

I have a few of them, mostly off name or farm store cheapies like this one I use as an EDC. I do have a Sharp 110 knock off my parents bought me for my 12th birthday, after 45 years it’s earned it’s place safely tucked away in a drawer to be given to my 1st grandson when he’s old enough.

Old Buck 112 that has had the blade broken and shortened. A very comfortable Buck 597 that has seen a lot of use and my best of the lot is a Benchmade North Fork.

Here's my folding hunter. I also have a black folding hunter type knife Monkeyball gave me. I put an edge on it but haven't used it yet. This Buck 110 has been used a lot.

Hard to beat a 110 or a 112. I also like the 500 Duke with the drop point blade.

Dad's old Buck 317 trailblazer given to him in 1974 by guys he worked with as a gift when I was born. He wore out the 440A stainless blades and had someone replace them with D2 die steel blades. I took a moose apart with it a couple weeks ago in Alaska.

I'll second the good words on the GEC 23 as well. I have the pioneer in the 2 blade version and the beaver tail single liner lock. FANTASTIC knives.

My two Buck 110's. The one the left was given to me by my dad on my 17th birthday. The other one was given to me on Father's day last year from my son. I have 3 grandsons, they each receive a Buck 110 with custom sheath on their 12th birthday. Only one has received his so far, the others aren't far behind.

A few plastic ones. Pardon the fixed blades.

From: Jeff Durnell

I like these plastic handled Buck Bantams too. The 286 is the biggest, 5" closed, but it's still very light, inexpensive, and just plain works. The green camo one is a 285, which I carried daily for a long time. I just can't keep the dang things, keep losing them.

I use a Buck 102 and 105 fixed blade for hunting, but his Bucklite folder serves as my utility knife or even carry knife when hiking or as a spare in my backpack when hunting. I see a few guys have them posted above. Got this one years ago when a store was going out of business and picked it up cheap.

Had this 110 Hunter for over fifty years; Dad bought it for me around 1970. Had a new blade installed when the tip broke on a deer pelvis and still have the sheath but it’s unusable. It wore out a few bluejean backplate pockets.

I bought this Puma 265 in the mid 1970s. I believe I bought it at Hornick's Hardware in Johnstown, PA. Back then I carried and used it every day in my construction job. The scales are worn and there are some dings where I had to use it as a hammer in an emergency but it holds an edge and had gutted every deer I've shot since buying it.

From: PhantomWolf
Date: 28-Sep-22




I have a Puma just like yours Phil that I bought at LL Bean back in the early 80's as our group was heading to northern Maine for our salmon fishing week. The scales on mine are green, it's an excellent folder.

From: felipe

Another Phil, another Puma. Bought mine also in the ‘70 s. I made black ebony scales to replace the plastic. Mine came without the lanyard ring hole so I drilled and made that also (from shirt hanger wire). Nice knife that holds a super edge.
