    Mitch, to confuse and confuddle things (we're knife guys!) Also look at the Buck 500 - really the thinnest and smoothest of the big Buck lock-backs if you want to keep it in a front pocket. OH

    Yep the 500 is close to a 112 in size and in fact the first attempts at a drop point 112 blade Chuck Buck and Leroy Reamer modified the 500 to fit a 112 frame. The new Slim models are available in upgraded steel and with a removable pocket clip in different colors and handle materials. Buck just came out with a automatic (not likely legal for you) and I'm sure Buck will soon have a regular aluminum frame too that makes a full sized 112 considerably lighter..
