Very cool acquisition.Good-on-ya.

Four [4] handle pins.The rocker rivet is not counted when describing the number of pins.This is a common mistake.

The ability to recognize handle pins and discount the rocker rivet as a "pin",separates the amateurs from the pros.LOL

Newest and new to me as of ten minutes ago. I think it's pretty slick.

Finally setup for left hand carry. I haven't had a Buck in Micarta since I sold off a few of my 500s over a decade ago. Time will tell, but it's pretty nice out of the box.

I've never seen one with brass on one side and nickel on the other. Is that a one off? Or are there others floating around?

there was a web blast knife done with brass and nickel silver sides and wood scales---but this one with red micarta scales and s30v is a one of a kind...

I'd be surprised if you don't like it. The lock up on mine is perfect. No blade play. Blade is centered. The action is a bit stiff out of the box, but with use it should improve. Initially, I had reservations on the clip as it appears to take up some real estate. But upon use, I like that it's short and the base is wide as it sits in the pocket nicely. Did I mention that it's light? And slim? I've always thought that the classic 112 is the perfect lockback folder, but it's an anchor compared to this one. ;)
