BUCK POCKET KNIFE 503C LOCK BACK BLADE

Today it's my personal pocket knife.
I've carried a pocket knife since I was 10 years old.  Growing up on a farm, I needed one.  I find a thousand uses for one and still carry one to this day.  I've carried this Buck for the last 15 years.
It's just the right size for a pocket.  It's just about as big as a tube of lip balm. 
I like the classic style of this lock back.  Rosewood handles and stainless steel add to it's classic looks.
I'd suggest a lock back as a pocket knife, especially if you've ever had a non lock-back suddenly close on your fingers....
It's not a show knife.  Just a daily user...
I should have cleaned the blade a little before the pics... I was using it the night before to open some packages.
I'll probably just carry this knife till I wear away the blade or it falls apart... neither of which will happen in my lifetime.  A nice knife like this will put you back only about 30-40 bucks and it's well worth it.  If you don't have a nice pocket knife, you should think about picking one up... It's Vintage Gear for Guys!

  2. I have been carrying at 503c for the last 17 years. Like you I will carry it until the blade is gone. I have gave a 503c to my Dad as a gift 15 years ago, when he passed this last year he gave instructions to give it to my daughter who now carries it always.
