Vintage Case

Buck vs Gerber: overall, which is better quality? ?

The answer is...Case XX cutlery.

Buck knives are great knives. They make some very nice sheath knives and the 110 Folding Hunter is a classic. But, the downside of Buck is that their blades are hard to resharpen once they become dull. It all has to do with the high nickle steel content in their blades. Nickle resists rust, but is hard has hell to sharpen (which is why many gunmakers use (or used) a nickle plated finish years ago before they switched to stainless. It resists rust, but is hard to work with.)

Gerber makes some interesting knives. Perhaps more modern looking. But I have heard of the blades on some of their fixed blade knives simply "breaking". I had some friends in the military that carried the Gerber Mark II knives with them. They said that in training, they would fall on their sheathed knives and then find that the blade actually broke at the hilt/handle. Oh well.

Case knives are a different story. I would go with a vintage Case knife made before 1990. They mostly copied the Buck designs, but offered much better steel that was/is easier to sharpen. Hunt on eBay for a Case Sharktooth, Hammerhead or Mako folder, and you will be happy. Also, the smaller Case sheath knives are great.
