    I was gifted a new old stock Buck 110. It was found in the back stock room of an old hardware store. The box had water damage and was not readable, so age unknown (edit 1997 - thanks @Primordial ) The brass is tarnished but no rust anywhere.
    Question, the tip of the blade, while new, has a small roll in it. I have never worked on a Buck before. The main grind is obviously a hollow grind. But does anyone know what the edge grind is? I would like to use the right tool for the job but can not quite tell.

    Does anyone have a pattern for a quick draw sheath for the 110? Have you ever used a quick draw sheath, do you like it?

    Pretty simple flat secondary bevel at the edge. I like using diamond stones for sharpening my 110, but any whetstone you have would be fine.

    FYI. Buck will sharpen it for free. They sent one ( the smaller 112) back to me that I found in the dirt broken. It came back gleaming.

    I spent the last two weeks with it on my hip, elk hunting. The edge is crazy.

    You can find out when your knife was made by the symbol stamped neat the "110" model number : https://www.buckknives.com/about-knives/how-old/

    I always sharpen my old buck knives at 20% on each side. An old fellow told me that years ago. Works for me. ( I use a spydeco sharpening system.

    Simply pull it across the edge of your truck window twice, feel it, more if needed. Then strop, strop and strop some more . It will produce a scary, dangerous edge every time . A 110 is one of he easiest knives ever to get a deadly edge on. I love em .

    That 110 will have a blade of 440c. It can be challenging to get a good edge on 440c.

    1997 110 should have 420HC, the same steel Buck uses today on standard knives.

    As already said the edge should be a basic V shape that can be sharpened pretty easy by holding the existing angle flat on a stone.

    And the quick draw sheath holds the blade partially open and when you pull the knife out a metal bar/rivet slides down the blade edge opening it up. Not very good for keeping a sharp edge.
