    I would slip a collector 110 in a fabric sleeve then put knife in sheath. Unless it's a user then it doesn't matter.

    You can store Titanium knives in leather sheaths and Brass knives in Nylon sheaths.

    Yeah, I had heard that you could store a 110 in the leather sheath if you wrapped the 110 in waxed paper........I recently took a couple out and discovered that........they had some green right through the waxed paper.

    So much for THAT theory.

    They were old sheaths and I suspect the old ones are even worse than the new ones.

    Anyhow, I don't store or carry in anything but the Cordura sheathes......I save the leather ones.

    The horizontal one in the OP........I suspect that nobody liked them and they didn't sell many. They sold them for years and they're still rare, especially the plain one in the OP.

    Maybe it was just that real men wanted a sheath that looked like a sheath........not an eyeglass case.

    :D

    I have nothing but the greatest respect for my Buck Brothers.
    So I have no idea what you're talking about.
    Are you trying to start another argument?

    Mike, you can't have a battle of wits with an unarmed person.
    It's not a fair fight.

    Welcome to the ignore club!
    It's really nice here.
    And we all get along.
    :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:p

    I store all my knives in the sheaths with zero problems. Take them out and give them a wipe once in a while.

    My dad had issues with verdigris on some of his stuff. I swear it was the mink oil he used.

    I keep 95% of all my knives in glass cases and have no problem with verdigris. I have a few in leather and check them approx once a month and they need cleaning to get rid of the verdigris that's how fast they tarnish. If you leave it long enough it will actually eat into the brass and tang of the blade.

    Then show it and stop being so obnoxiously skeptical and antagonistic!

    I think your dad had more problems with verdigris because the older sheathes were treated with different chemicals and tended to cause severe problems.

    The problems have gradually decreased over the years and are better now.

    You might be onto something with the Mink Oil.......I used it too.

    Anyhow, I've found it better to just store any knives that have brass in the Cordura sheathes.

    Being skeptical is not against the rules here. We are allowed to be skeptical.

    Personal attacks like yours, however........ARE against the rules.

    Farm probably has the best answer.

    This way you avoid the possibility of wear or scratching from the knife going in and out of a Cordura sheath.

    Keep those collectors pristine.

    Skepticism, negativity, and arguing, etc. it's all apart of it, but you take it to the point of obnoxious, wake up I don't think many disagree. Tone it down substantially and no one will mind.

    I don't store my knives in sheaths, but for long term storage in leather, how about tightly wrapping the knife in plastic wrap? Being so thin, it wouldn't stretch the leather either.

    I don’t store my knives in sheaths either I can’t put them down long enough to store them. They probably tarnish just as fast handling them as they would stored in a sheath?
