    Although the blade shape is different from other knives I have I can tell it is seemingly perfect for opening up a deer. It will also be good for the camp cook.

    I never posted pic of my two new additions. im up to three now. i saw one in the pawn shop last week but they wanted $30 and it had an unfortunate meeting with a bench grinder. i just dont understand why people use bench grinders on knives. if i can find one cheep that has not been ground up, im gonna get it for a rehandle project.

    It didnt want to budge and i was hitting it pretty hard. Wound up drilling it with smaller bit then punched it out.

    The modern day 501 is a lot different than my "vintage" one, it doesn't even have a model #, just "Buck." It's kinda like me, showing it's age. I remember having a hard time getting it sharp back in the day.

    Have a blessed day,

    It counts! But only one membership, not eight. :D Welcome st8yd! Thanks for the photo of the disassembled Pathfinder. The blade and all of the handle parts would make a great display. Looking forward to seeing your customization! :thumbsup:

    Greetings Mitch110 and welcome to the Pathfinder Club! I REALLY like those stacked leather 105s. Gotta ask - Who removed the LL Bean blade logo? That looks great! :thumbsup:

    I don’t know what is going on. I received a second 105 yesterday and still have one in route from LLBean. I assume these first two are something the eBay seller did but I have no way of contacting them. And to think a week ago I was Pathfinder poor

    the eight isn't a quantity, st8yd-Statewide.

    Made a little more progress, slow as the first piece of lucite wound up being to brittle, but I had another guard off of his old chopsaw.

    Those guards weren’t going to do much good being so brittle. They would have been dangerous.

    Statewide is pretty clever. But I think he got the 8 from the number of pieces after disassembly. I went back and counted.

    I can’t wait to see the finished knife. I love the color.

    Yes, I should've been more clear. Thanks eveled.

    Knife is looking good so far, st8yd. I wish I had your talent. :thumbsup:

    There wasn't going to be any lucite in the guard. It might of been ok once it was all glued together at least that was my thinking, but the more I messed with it the more I didn't want to put all the effort into it and it not work.

    I like the spacer in the guard. It’s part of the Buck look.

    Thanks, I really contemplated only doing the single piece aluminum guard as the old original lucite handles had, but I wanted to use the orange spacers to make it more unique.

    All done! If I get bored maybe I will find some orange thread for the sheath.
    Just in time for going to the woods next wknd, hopefully I will get to quench it.
