    Happy 4th of July everyone...

    I got this Buck 825 Statue of Liberty from a ex-Buck-employee a few months ago... He said it was a prototype...
    He said they were going to make them like this one, but they came up with an idea to use pewter
    handles instead... I think it cool want do you think... ITE ...

    825 Pewter... My first one...

    825 Pewter... With no rocker rivet (lockbar)... (Maybe a prototype)...

    825Pewter... Buck wanted to keep the original green look on the brass medallion...

    Pictures of all three of them...

    825 Prototype...

    Now those are quite interesting. Now I wonder how it would have fared on the market? Thanks for sharing.

    Happy 4th of July right back at you!.

    That is a cool folder ITE. Excellent photos, as usual. Thank you kindly for sharing this on Independence Day.

    Link to history of statue and Liberty as a woman: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statue_of_Liberty

    Off topic: Liberty, depicted as a woman, is an interesting theme and one with quite a history. The French version has the striding woman armed & surrounded by the fallen (fierce creatures to arm). A link to pic of liberty as women interpreted by artists, on coins, from my vault for your amusement: http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b1...Liberty012.jpg

    ITE...the differences in those three knives pictured in your first post are pretty cool. I'll have to check out a few of mine when I get home. Also, I've never seen one of those knives like you have in the first picture in post #6.
