I've always carried a Buck 110 on my belt. I have one case and two knifes. For every day use I use my 'new' Buck 110 (6 or 7 years old) for hunting/camping activities I Cary my old Buck 110 (about 20 years old, with a broken tip that I filed round and sharpened) Other than being a PITA to sharpen the first time, due to their concave edge, I think they're great. Yet, I never see anyone mention using one at all on here. In fact, it seems that if you don't Cary a Kershaw <SP> you don't Cary a knife, according to this forum. So, I guess I'm really asking what's so different about the knifes you'all carry vs. a made in America Buck? Another question: The Bucks I've owned all were made in America, and had a little Bible verse in the box. My wife bought me a fixed blade (decorative - in my opinion) Buck knife about 4 or 5 years ago. It was made in China or something like that, and contained no little slip of paper with a Bible verse. Did Buck change ownership? or just their American Patriot attitude?
