    Who does custom work?

    I’d like to switch the pins on my Buck Slim Pro for screws. Ideally switch the scales and add pivot shims too. I’ll appreciate to be pointed in the right direction. Thank you.

    Please help with 110 Slim S30V

    I’ve sent back knives to Buck and their response has been returning the knife as is and saying it fits their specs. Thank you anyhow.

    Please help with 110 Slim S30V

    I just bought a Buck 110 Slim with S30V steel. The blade when closed is way off center, the green micarta looks white and dry, and the very awful pins (rivets?) securing the knife together do no justice to a very fine blade. Therefore, I’d like to know if there is a kit yet to replace the...

    Axe? Please educate me

    I love anything well made. I’d love a small hatchet with an edge that won’t turn serrated after a few hits against bone. Now, an old machete made in Central America and a wooden club will do the job just fine.

    Axe? Please educate me

    Well, I must agree. Hell, what’s the use of false modesty. I mean, if you rock, you rock.

    Axe? Please educate me

    Since you axed: I own a small Gränsfors ax (Gränsfors Small Hatchet) that I bought for splitting the chest bone on deer. It seemed like the perfect ax for the job and for camping except that after a few knocks on bone the edge was left looking like a saw, or that’s how I saw it (get it?). Ok...

    This is why I need a source for a good bird knife. My very dear friend, who made all kinds of knives for me, passed the day after Thanksgiving and I’m retiring those thieves so special to me.

    Too many years ago I lived in a very old two story farm house in southern Virginia that only had fireplaces for heat. So all I had in my bedroom was a fireplace. At night it was great..., in the morning it was a freezing hell, so to speak. It wasn’t so bad, though, when there a was a young...

    Help, please

    Well, he wants a light pack for a type of hunt, in Maine, that’s doesn’t require hauling lots of weight. So he told me that for the time being he needs a 1800 Kuiu daypack. However, that for next year, for a different type of hunt, he’ll like a Kifaru. Thank you so much for your...

    Help, please

    I might be incurring in a gaffe asking this question here but I’ve read this type of discussion here before, and this seems to be the most considerate, sensible and friendly corner of the forum. So, my anticipated apologies. The question. I want to give my son-in-law a top notch backpack for...

    True story. A friend of mine went to see a doctor. Doctor asks: do you drink? My friend: yes, I do. Doc: how much? Friend: well, you know, socially. Doc: how much is that? Friend: well, one or two. Doc: one or two drinks? Friend: oh, no, bottles.
