    Buck Cutlery: Paperstone or Rosewood

    Hi there. I am looking for critical opinion from owners of Buck cutlery on whether the paperstone handled knives are of the same high quality as the Rosewood. I am leaning toward the paperstone but want to ask around before I buy.

    custom shop wishlist.....

    I would like to see the 300 line in the CKS. A screw fastened 110 and 112 with 20CV and M4 as an option. More options for the 500 line. The assisted open 294 Momentum. In that order. And oh yeah. One more quality control check on each knife. That is all. Also, the CKS could offer a line...

    Lightweight exercise knives

    I've been running with a Benchmade Bugout. It might as well be weightless. I clip it to the waistband of my running shorts, on the inside, with a parachute cord lanyard I made holding my house key hanging out, works very nicely. When I get worried about wild dogs, two and four legged, I do...

    5th Annual: Help Us Build a Buck: 104 Compadre - Handle Material

    G10 all the way. Not purple... Dark brown or forest green sculpted G10. Sheath should be natural leather.

    March 2019 Buck of the Month - Released

    Yeah, I have attempted to loosen the pivot on my 293 and it was difficult and there was some marring. I had to send it back anyway. Good knife though. Buck did fix it nicely. I want to send you a mailing label...

    Lightweight exercise knives

    I'm a distance runner and I have carried a Victorinox Farmer around my neck (winter run) and also hanging inside sweat pants on a carabiner clipped to waistband. Would also work for warm weather runs I think. You won't use it much. Good luck.

    5th Annual: Help Us Build a Buck: 104 Compadre - Blade Steel

    A sissy knife would be a purple coated knife with a hollow grind. But then, I wasn't being too serious. I would like to see a flat grind tough steel and I would rather it not be coated. A coating would get in the way of bushcrafting, would it not?

    5th Annual: Help Us Build a Buck: 104 Compadre - Blade Steel

    CPM 154, bare metal. Depending on the remaining choices - I want a flat grind - I can get pumped on this deal and will buy one unless you guys make it a sissy knife.

    CPM-20CV: Tough Enough?

    Well hey. I really like my 20CV Griptillian. I'm pretty careful with it, though. This right here ^ makes this thread worthwhile to me. So yes, this thread is going somewhere, to me it is. I now want a kitchen knife in 20CV.

    CPM-20CV: Tough Enough?

    You don't think the 20 degree edge angle is good enough to prevent chipping? Speculating, I would guess the factory edge process led to the chip. Do you think that is a reasonable guess?

    CPM-20CV: Tough Enough?

    That is surprising. I have never skinned wire but still.

    How To 119 Brahma Handle Help

    So then no oil, no wax, no grinding because that will only work to the extent that there are more male threads than female threads and I'm not trying to pull the leather off to find out. Washers, brass, reamed out to fit. Can I get those in red ceracote?

    Buck 301! Now where do I carry it?

    I also need a sheath for a 301. I use my belt to carry most things. I carry a lot...

    Recommendations needed

    You folk are all carried away with the blade toughness, I don't understand why. Why does the possibility of some "bushcraft" mean the toughest blade ever?

    How To 119 Brahma Handle Help

    Ok so my 119 Brahma is one of my favorite knives and I'm not sending it in because the handle is just a little loose because leather is not steel or wood or plastic . I know someone has figured it out, my guess is washers between the very back of the handle and the head of the screw that holds...

    5th Annual: Help Us Build a Buck: Fixed Blade (Giveaway)

    105 because it's more carryable.

    Recommendations needed

    Well, I think a Buck 119 Special is hard to beat for the price, I like the wood handle done in brass. Not a bushcraft knife though. Someone said a 119 done in the high carbon steel, it's tougher but I don't like rust, you might. The Benchmade Bushcrafter looks like a good choice, don't have...

    Mini Griptilian

    I entirely recommend a custom shop grip with the g-10 handles and 20CV.
