    Wandered around a beach this morning looking for...well...nothing really. It’s just fun to walk around and soak in the view.

    Carried a Buck Slim Pro 112 and played around carving up driftwood.

    It’s a a very light and pocketable folder, and I really love micarta.

    I got one, so far I like it a lot. Has your clip become loose? Mine has, just have to find right size Alan wrench.

    It has not come loose on this one. I do have a light 110 that had a clip that snapped. Buck Warranty sent me a brand new clip, pre-thread locker applied screws, a cool sticker, and a coupon.

    First rate warranty and first rate company!

    Thank you sir!

    Can’t complain :)

    How's the fit and finish on that slim pro 112? I really want one but I hear the quality isn't quite to my specs.

    The quality is on par for normal Buck production. Good, but not perfect. As a user knife...it’s great! And very, very light.

    Thanks brother, I appreciate that. FYI...you have excellent taste in trucks!

    Thank you!

    I put the King to work this morning smashing, bashing, prying, and cutting.

    I wanted to share some pictures of what’s happening to our oceans. The amount of trash is staggering.

    These shorelines have been cleaned multiple times over the years, and as you can see, results don’t last long.

    The minuscule pile I’ve collected pales in comparison to what the ocean holds.

    Lost of commercial fishing stuff, car parts, household items, and plastic everything under the sun.

    Please be aware and do your part to reduce, reuse, recycle.

    I use a Silky and a BK9 quite often, excellent combo that can pretty much take care of anything!

    Looked at my Alan wrenches, none that small. Gives me an excuse to look around the hardware section. Excuse my dumbness, is T6 metric?

    Did you have to cut the bamboo in half if it was already a natural vase? Unless you had to seal the end to hold water? Neat project, would love to see what you do with flowers on Easter Morning. :D

    Although you might find an Allen wrench by trial and error to work a given Torx fastener, there is no ready correspondence. The same Torx drivers are used on fasteners with either SAE or metric threads. You might get lucky using a metric or standard Allen wrench, or you might strip out the fastener.

    A small set of Torx drivers in common sizes from T6 to T20 will cost you about ten bucks.
