    My latest find is this vintage Buck 112 Ranger two-dot version, made between 1974 and 1980.
    Still in very good condition regarding it's age, and armhair shaving sharp with a toothy edge.











    This older Buck 112 is definitely not a lightweight, has no finger grooves, no rounding of the handle edges, cannot be easily opened due to a strong spring and no nailnick, and the blade is not made from 420HC but from noticeably harder & more wear resistant 440C steel.
    The blade is also semi-hollow ground instead of hollow ground like newer versions.

    In short: old school quality for real men,

    Specs:

    Length open: 18,4 cm
    Length closed: 10,9 cm
    Blade length: 7,5 cm
    Blade thickness: 3,0 mm
    Blade grind: semi-hollow
    Sharpening angle: ~30 degrees inclusive (or ~15 degrees per side)
    Steel type: 440C stainless
    Hardness: ~60 HRC
    Lock type: Lockback
    Handle material: Solid brass frame with Makassar Ebony inlays
    Weight: 183,4 grams
    Belt sheath: Leather

    Vintage Puma 8101-"lang" Texas Bill throwing scout knife from the early 1950's.
    This is the slightly longer version of the original Texas Bill knife.
    Definitely one of the more elusive Puma scout models, especially in this condition.
    Complete with original sheath.
