    On to our 5th Buck Forum Knife! Here is the history of the knives we've built together!

    1st Year: Buck Marksman
    2nd Year: Buck 110
    3rd Year: Buck Vantage
    4th Year: Buck 110 LT

    Since we missed out on doing the 2019 Trad Forum Knife, and since we've been doing 1 of these every year for the last 5 years, it's time again!

    As it says in the title, we need help building a Buck Fixed Blade. This poll will help us determine the model of the knife from these 3 options:

    Buck 104 Compadre
    Buck 105 Pathfinder
    Buck 119 Special

    From this vote, we'll launch into more polls for the materials available for modification! This poll will be open for 8 days.

    Your input is very important to us. So important, that we are doing a DRAWING TO GIVE AWAY THE FIRST KNIFE FROM THIS PROJECT.

    Rules for entry in the drawing: Please vote and leave a comment or question to get yourself entered into the drawing. You can only enter once, but can comment as many times as you'd like!

    And here, we, go!

    For me its between the 105 and the 119, with the edge at the moment to the 119.

    I really like the 105, but I don’t have a 104 yet and one we custom spec would be a nice place to start!

    Voted for the 119. IMO, one of the more iconic knives in the Buck lineup. I'd love an SK take on one.

    I'll stick with the 105, great all around blade...much rather it be the 118, but I like the 105, also. Just don't want any Cerakote!

    I can't actually commit to buy right now, but I do love these annual builds you do. I am torn between the 105 and the 119. I think I will vote for the 105, that way I could join the pathfinder's club ;)

    I went with the Compadre since it hasn't gotten as much love nor special editions.

    There’s so many different options already for the 104 and 119... the new 104 looks mighty tempting....I’d like to see what SK can come up with from our input..voted 104

    104 Compadre is my choice. :)

    Reason: I haven't had a Compadre yet. :(

    Pathfinder for me. Love the 119, but if I had to choose between the two I tend get more use out of the Pathfinder. No experience with a Compadre, though.
