    Question Just a LITTLE thing...

    I'm looking for a tiny addition to my Buck Folding Hunter. It's old, but I need one of those little clamp-on buttons for one handed opening. Anybody know where I can pick one up? Maybe it uses a tiny hex bolt to secure it to the blade?

    You need the smaller size I believe. I have one on my Buck 110. It even comes with its own hex driver.

    I didn't notice that before. Taking a second look, the "coke" nail might explain his technique.

    Wow, I hadn't seen those before. I've got a couple lockbacks that could benefit from those. Any idea how secure they are? I imagine some Lock-tite would help but how well do they stay in place? Also, would that affect normal sheath carry? Thinking of using them on a Buck 500 and similar Boker Tree brand.
    Thanks, might have to pick up a few of those!

    Now that is pretty much what I have thought of for ages - because my Buck TNT is not a fast opener and this might well be just the ticket.

    The top spine on that knife comes out at a thou or two over 1/8" - so hope that'll fit, not wanting to go up in size if avoidable.

    Thx for the link OG.

    Wow I can't believe this crowd isn't familiar with this product.

    The stud can sometimes affect sheath carry depending on how tight your sheath is.

    Loc Tite has never been necessary for me; just cinch up and go.

    And yes their picture is HORRIBLE. Don't open a knife like that.

    OG, there seems to be a security issue with the site. I ordered one of their catalogs so I can get it snail mail, but if I can't use a secure server, I HATE to put my financial info out there. There must be another source for these thinghies. I think the Buck Folding Hunter takes the 3/8 size.

    That coke nail and the lousy grip just looks pimpish.
    Good idea though.

    There was a little gizmo years ago called the "Flick-it" or "Flip-it", same general idea but it was more of a lip that clamped into the nail notch. Not sure if those are still made but it might give another option.

    Knife Opening

    Euclidean: Do you perhaps remember which size the Buck 110 takes? That's the model I have (about 30 years old though...) and these old fingers need all the help they can get. Thank you! :216:

    R&G - can you measure across the spine near hinge? My Buck Mayo TNT is almost exactly an 1/8" and so I got that size - just managed to get it on tho tight fit. Easy to use a swipe or two with a needle file if needed.

    Yea...I'll go measure (just lazy - too much turkey)....They're probably not tight enough a micrometer to be needed.

    Thank you all!
