    I like to play a game with my Buck 110 folder. Pulling it out, handing it to people, and asking them how much they think I paid for it, qualifying that it’s made in the USA.

    Nobody comes close to the $38 + tax. I’ve had people guess $100…

    Buck is doing some great stuff. Love that they’re doing it here in the USA, congratulations Lindsey!

      Buck’s website has them for $82, so unless you bought it in 1992 your story doesn’t make sense.

      • Mark says:

        Don’t buy them from their site- buy them from retail outlets.

        Their site has some good deals on customs and on specials but there’s no need to pay full MSRP.

        You’re sitting at a computer typing about my comment not making sense.

        Try googling “buck 110”. Or try walking into the sporting goods aisle at Wal Mart. Does that make sense?

        I bought mine in 2016, not 1992. US made.
