    Buck 112 Ranger Pro

    Hmm I just went and check and I must have done something funky. It has me signed up for a veterans discount not the service pro. I'm not sure if those are the same?

    Buck 112 Ranger Pro

    I mean buying both a finger grove and a drop point combined would be the same as a custom shop. I could do a little blade swap.. that'll have to wait until I get home haha

    GEC #86 2021: Angus Jack, 2AB, Spring Street Barlow (BF Knife)

    Honestly I'm not usually a huge fan of sheepsfoot blades, I do like a coping as a secondary. But I snagged one of the 86 Angus to have a look, just waiting for it to ship.

    That might be a difficult job with the bolster on the 2AB. 🤔 but I do agree the end result sounds good

    Guardians of The Lambsfoot!

    I've read through quite a bit of the thread, still interesting how some patterns transferred over from Europe to the America and others didn't.

    Guardians of The Lambsfoot!

    Morning? It's almost lunch here in Eastern Europe. ;) Being out here has made me feel for you Europe folks, it's a terrible thing to log on to BF and have most of the posts be from the day before. I feel like I'm out of the loop! No picture so far today, besides it's been raining all day. But...

    Buck 112 Ranger Pro

    I definitely agree with that the spear point looks much better on the 110. Hmm that makes me wonder how a drop point would like on a 112FG...

    GEC #86 2021: Angus Jack, 2AB, Spring Street Barlow (BF Knife)

    It's like trying to pick a favorite child. 😆 Theres going to be quite a few variation of 86's this year so I'm only going for one and I' stumped as to which one to get. Well done might be safer and a little more uniform, but the rare might have more character.

    Buck 112 Ranger Pro

    420 is tough in that the blade is less likely to break, but doesn't hold an edge as well. Which isn't to say s30v isn't tough, just not as much, but much better edge retention.

    Buck 112 Ranger Pro

    You're both right. I definitely prefer the clip on the 112, the drop point is tempting if only because I don't have one currently

    GEC #86 2021: Angus Jack, 2AB, Spring Street Barlow (BF Knife)

    Have we reached a consensus on weather the rare or well done covers are better? From what I've seen the well done look pretty sharp

    Buck 112 Ranger Pro

    I'll probably grab a standard one, really the nickel is the only thing I like about the Pro. I'm not usually a fan of G10, but strangely approve of it on the pro. The next question is a clip point or a drop point.

    Buck 112 Ranger Pro

    I'm currently "deployed" in Europe with the army. 9 months stuck in a box in some forest. Seeing as I neglected to bring a Buck knife with me (I was given only 3 days notice to pack) so I'm thinking I'll buy a 112. Now what do you all think is the pro worth it? Its toting mainly for the nickle...

    Case using 1095?

    Thanks for the pictures, I was hoping someone had one. I might end up picking one, just because they're a little different.

    Case using 1095?

    I'm curious how much of an improvement the 1095 will be over their normal steel. I think their normal stuff is 1085? If I remember right I've had quite good luck with case as well. Not sure I'l try out this one. If I remember I comes with burlap micarta scales.

    Case using 1095?

    Ran across a SFO that case apparently just made for a dealer with 1095, steel, anyone going to be buying one? Its tempting but I have quite a few large trappers and don't really NEED another...but maybe. I've never had much of a beef with Case steel, a little soft but not bad. On another note...

    Guardians of The Lambsfoot!

    The action is pretty smooth now with nice wall and talk. I never did see anything pop out but something must have at some point, the spring sunk just a hair below the liners whereas before it was flush. Who knows. 🤔 I'm just glad it's still tight with no wobble and kept its centering. Besides...

    Guardians of The Lambsfoot!

    Well I think I finally resolved this problem child of mine. A bottle of WD-40 later and 3 days or so of opening and closing it constantly and its smoothed out significantly. I was worried for a moment, it seized up really badly for a while, I could only open it half way and had to push the blade...

    Guardians of The Lambsfoot!

    This is the only one from them that's given me trouble and I haven't managed to get smooth, I suspect it has bur on the spring or something. I think I got this one a year or so ago? I take it out occasionally and try and clean it out, I've probably used a gallon of oil trying to clean it out...

    You all always post delicious food, so here's mine...homemade I promise 😅 I'm over in Europe right now, part of 1ABCT if anyone is familiar with Army units. I only brought a few knives to entertain myself one of which is this A Wright & Son. It's a little but of a problem child, it's always...
