MAKING THE ORDINARY EXTRAORDINARY
The Buck110.com Official Blog offers news and happenings on the buck 110 and related items.
After having put Fossil Fish in a similar matrix in a buck 110, I figured doing the same thing with these Mosasaurus teeth would be a step in a similar direction. I was wrong. I felt more like an archeologist preparing this fossil matrix for installation on a buck 110 than I did a knife maker. Moving around the sand, repairing and adjusting the tooth is all part of the game with this job. It took quite a bit longer than I had expected but I almost felt like I was playing rather than working. That's part of the joy in creating a new one of a kind.
Always looking for the next coolest thing to put into a buck 110. This time it's authentic Indian Arrowheads surrounded by Banded black and white stone with brass spacers. This knife also has a fresh new design on the bolsters, as well as on the spine and back of the blade. A serious one of a kind buck 110.

I guess its all a matter of opinion. I have plans to do yet more variations of the buck 110 watch parts knives. Please post your opinions in the comment section below.

I decided to try adding them to knives and the results came back a big success. I received lots of positive feedback from the knife community and my first steampunk watch parts knife sold right away. This small success has encouraged me to try more new configurations adding watch parts to knives in particular the Buck 110. My first Steampunk knife has a bunch of small vintage watch parts spread out throughout a completely clear casted handle with matching cog, and gear bolsters in...
Buck110.com has made a deal with USA Knife Maker, "aka Knife Dogs" for some of those snazzy Kwick Thumb Studs. In the near future all custom buck 110's will come standard with Kwick thumb studs. Even if you never plan on using our custom buck knives, the thumb stud adds a nice visual touch to the knife, completing its custom look.
I have been publicly customizing knives since 2011. I started out doing only inlay on knife handles, but then realized there was still something missing. Thats when I started trying to come up with added embelishments on pocket knives and fixed blades as well as other speciality items like letter openers and money clips. Anything with a flat surface is a target for my work. I also have felt that there isn't enough variety when it comes to handle materials for knives so I started making my own materials by casting objects into alumilite resin. I came up with stabilizing and casting sea urchin spines, Sharks teeth, and other interesting...
