Back on Saturday September 1st of this year I posted some
pictures of my Buck 112 Ranger knife, a knife that I have
had for some 36 years. I wrote that I really wanted to buy the
110 Folding Hunter, the Ranger's bigger brother. Well, my
meager tax return was received and I did buy the 110.

Here is the back of the package showing the leather sheath.
These knives used to come in nice boxes. They still might,
but when you buy from Walmart I suppose that this
blister packaging is the best that you can expect.
Kind of a drag, but whatever.

And this is an all leather sheath. It smells SO good.
Like a new leather holster. Just something great about it.
The sheath is made in Mexico. They do a good job.

The Buck 110 in the closed position with the sheath.

Nice looking, eh? The clip point blade length is 3.75 inches and is
made of 420HC Stainless Steel. The overall length is about 8.5
inches. Not a small knife and at 7.2 ounces, it is not light either.
Belt carry is the best option.
This knife is SHARP and easy TO sharpen.

When I first opened it I was a little disappointed. I had thought I
received a "lemon". The blade did not "snap" back into the closed position.
I could even easily get the blade to rest about a quarter of an inch from the
complete closed position. This is not good. That blade needs to have
ZERO play and to close COMPLETELY... every time. But I had simply
forgotten that sometimes a knife like this just needs a little oil, some use
and tender loving care and BAM! The action is now smooth
as owl shi.... as my dad would say.

No lemon here.
I should have known.
I love Buck Knives.

The Buck 110 Folding Hunter is all American made. The symbol next
to the number 110 indicates that my knife was made in 2018.
With care this knife will be handed down to my son and
in turn maybe to his son or daughter.
