If the wooden scales and Paul Bos-treated 420HC of the classic Buck 110 is too 20th Century for you, Buck Knives is accepting pre-orders for a limited run of these 110s through boutique Internet vendor Best Made. And if you want one, you’d better get in line now.
At $138, these limited editions run about three times the price of your dad’s Buck 110. But I’ll bet your dad’s 110 didn’t come with G10 scales and an S30V blade. This isn’t the first time Buck has made a limited custom run of exotic-steel 110s, but as far as I know they’re the only new ones being offered right now.
I love the look of this knife (like any 110) but I can only wonder how much better the S30V would perform than the standard Paul Bos 420HC. Unfortunately I’ll probably never find out…
