    I've got a standard and love it, only thing I can think of not to like about this FFG version is the lack of an actual stamp like I so love from Buck.

    I got two knives today.
    An old hickory 8" slicer and an old Victor wire handled bread / cake knife, my aunt found both when they were renovating their new house and saved them for me.

    It is a 176 that was made before the key construction era:thumbsup:

    I ordered the beautiful GEC Eureka Jack.
    With the change I had left over, I ordered a Rough Ryder Micarta Stockman.
    Now it's a race to see which knife will be the first knife of 2020. :eek:

    "...I wasn’t even out of bed before I made a purchase" :D:D:D
    Lol, can't blame ya for that! The Buck Woodsman is the first knife I lusted after 50 something years ago when my friend (who had everything:mad:) got one for scouts. The new 102 is at least as cool!:cool: Great score and at an amazing price... almost had me ordering one.:eek:;)

    A bargain and a fine knife!:thumbsup: I think I probably paid close to that 30+ years ago. I'm interested in the sheath it comes with now. Keep us posted.

    Mine will probably be the 23, unless there's a scramble. I'm still mulling over the Warhorse. If it was a bit bigger it would have been a done deal months ago. If there's a scramble for the 23, I might need a consolation prize ... :)

    Broke the ice for 2020.

    I'm loving the brass. May need to pickup a GEC 44 to compliment it :)

    2019 was a great year and 2020 is starting off with a bang as well. Just scored on a #86 white bone for my first purchase of the year. The Black Jack & stag 86 arrived last week as my final 2 of 2019.

    I have a '70's Puma 675 stockman on the way. Been looking for a decent one at a reasonable price for a while. Found it online in a pawnshop. Should be here next week. And I told myself that I need to back off on my knife buying! I can stop at anytime...

    Had a gorgeous pair come in the mail today. Technically, they were purchased in 2019, though. Case Chestnut Bone Swayback Gent in CV, and a gorgeous Loveless style Drop Point Hunter in 1095 and Desert Ironwood Burl from @CThompson. I can't wait to get some pictures of them tomorrow!

    My first purchase of 2020 was a Schrade USA #491S 49ers fixed blade from the mid 1970s, which completes my collection of all four patterns in this series. (Yippeee!!) Pics when it comes home to papa. :cool:

    I've found that one tempting too! :)

    My first knife of 2020 though, is a very generous gift from Charlie @waynorth :) Charlie posted it well before Christmas, but the post has been terrible here this year, finally arrived today :) What a great knife :cool: Thanks Charlie, you're a great pal :) :thumbsup:

    Gotta love the little 55, just last week they announced that they'd be making them with ebony scales from Taylor guitars like they now do with the 110 once again.
