    Is this what the Pathfinder looked like in 1948? The model number might be 105, but it doesn't really look like a Pathfinder. That's why I went with 1961 when everything came together, however I understand your point.

    Interesting mod in eBay. Here's what a Pathfinder looks like with a clip point.

    Welcome westgin! That 105 definitely qualifies you for membership. It's in great condition for its age. Does it come with a story?

    Not much of a story to tell. I picked it up on the bay a couple years ago and sent it in for the spa treatment. I use it in the kitchen more than any where else. I really like the knife but still go back to my faithful 102 in the outdoors.

    Strongly disagree! That's a great story! Old knife spotted by a knowledgeable Bucknut, rescued from eBay, sent to Buck for a tune up, and back in service. :thumbsup:

    Nothing wrong with the 102, other than we've probably lost a few Pathfinder members to that little snot nosed kid. :D

    Yes that little 102 kept me from buying a lot of knives that I should have when they were a LOT cheaper! But it did do everything I needed it to, and that knife has a lot of stories!

    Welcome wonderboy! Wow, those are two beauties. I like the shape of that left pommel. Ironwood and stag or bone?

    The one on the left is a Klinkhammer Series 2 so it is Ironwood and stag.

    I'm pretty sure it is cow bone.
