I pack a small Buck knife. 503? It's got plastic sides. Unless I'm on a plane it's in my pocket.

One night I was working on something over the kitchen sink. Yep, dropped that sucker right down the garbage disposal that was only too happy to eat the knife. At that time they were not making any of that style, so I sent it to Buck asking for it to be repaired and send me the bill. The knife comes back complete and no charge. It's sitting on the counter waiting for me to put my pants on so it can go out again.

Thanks from CHERUB

They sent me a current model knife, pretty much a cheap POS compared to the burgundy handled Bucklite that I sent to them for repair. You may get lucky, but I suspect there isn't a person at Buck that sits around disassembling old knives and re-blading them, or even any level of sharpening beyond the most basic touch up. I bet they have a 20-something year old cute little brunette that opens the returns boxes, selects a "comparable" model, hits print on a form letter and packs and ships... Or I may be wrong, maybe black hair and slanty eyes...
I worked at the Buck Knives plant for a while. It's in Post Falls, Idaho. The guy that does all the repairs is an older gentleman that has worked with Buck for a very long time. He actually moved with them from California to Idaho when they moved the factory. Also one thing that I found interesting when I started there is that everything is made at the factory, besides the sheets of metal, and things like that of course. They even turn out the screws there. I was pretty impressed with how much was actually American made. Not many can say that now a days. Of course my time there came to an end when I got b@#$%ed at for complaining about the quality control to my team lead. In my defense when I have to take a knife, set it on a bench then use a fair amount of my considerable body weight to release the blade lock on nearly every knife going through the assembly line, I don't think that's right. And I'd be pissed to buy a new knife and have it be that tight. There was other things too, but issues like that are hard for me to swallow. OK end of gripe.

I was never a buck fan, hard to get a good edge on one. but recently acquired a 124 that someone had jacked the edge up on. did some research and realized they harden the 420 a lot higher than I expected. I used a coarse stone in a vise and considerable force and reapplied a proper edge. took some time but the end product was far superior to a new buck. going to be a camp knife for sure. also have a 112 and when approached the sharpening with the correct amount of effort it came around quickly. I have a different opinion of buck now. as for 440c I have never had a knife made of it that would hold an edge worth a damn, apparently the heat treat has a lot to do with the finished product. I have several Remington knives and always wanted to use one but they are all 440 and I expect more from a knife that what I have seen of 440c.
