I'm almost ashamed to admit I don't really do anything with my 110. It sits on the bottom shelf of my gun rack and just gets looked at. Every few months I'll wipe it down with gun oil and stick it back on the shelf. The issue is that she is a heavy beast. Ever since the 1980's saw the introduction of the BuckLite series I have moved to lighter weight folding knives. Same sharp hollow-ground blades, but polymer scales and no heavy brass bolsters. Back in the '70's my troop's Scoutmaster was an accomplished woodcarver and inveterate whittler. He taught us you wanted plenty of handle for leverage, and a relatively small blade to focus the cutting power into the work. The Buck 110 is a true classic. I believe Buck still produces a thousand a day when the line is running. They are old school cool. But for the same weight I can carry a lighter knife and a spare mag for my Glock.

I don't as I don't whittle. If I did I would use a smaller knife. IMHO the 110 is at it's best as a hunting knife and mine is a backup. My primary hunting knife that I carry is a knife made for me by S Texas knife maker Jack Sarnik:

Like Terry_P, as my wrists won't take it any more,I don't whittle also my 110 is 52 years old on 12/25/16. It also has become my back up since I also had a custom knife made to my specs.
