    In the post below this one, I will paste an application to the Buck Collectors Club Inc so that anyone interested in joining can simply print the post and have an instant application. One point of interest, the club is ready to sign a contract with a company to develop a website for the club. Membership will give you access to all the archived information that we will eventually have on the website. The officers and board members of the club are very excited about the website and all the information that can shared with collectors.

    :D My wife and I have enjoyed being part of the club and the great folks we have met! There are too many names to mention that have been more than eager to help with the many questions that arise in collecting Buck Knives. Thanks to all!! <b>It will be nice to finally have the history of Buck Knives archived!!</b>:D

    Here's a little more info about the club from Buck's web site as well as two well written and informative articles about collecting Buck knives.

    http://www.buckknives.com/cms/index.php?CategoryName=Collector's Club

    I wonder if Joe or one of the other moderators could make this post stick to the top as the membership application seems to be missing from the Buck Knives web site.

    Moderators:

    Can this be put up as a "sticky"?
    We don't want this to get buried as Basic members can't search.

    It is good to see a application available on line to assist the collector in getting hooked up to the club.

    The web site will be a great aid and resource for the Buck collectors and info seekers. Don't forget to ask about the up comming 15th Anniversary Club knives and get together at the plant in El Cajon. Looking forward to all the progress the club is and has made for the members. A side benefit is the great members and friends we meet at the two knife shows the club has displays in each year.

    Feel free to contact John if you need more information on the club.

    Don't worry! Until this is made sticky, we'll keep it up there. :)

    Gene's right about the best side benefit of the club, getting to know the other members. They are all a great bunch of guys and gals and I'm proud to call them friends.

    One more benefit is the access to the huge amount of knowledge that these people have...collectively it would probably be several lifetimes of Buck study. They will give you anything they know and all you have to do is stop and talk for a bit.

    Join up, you can try it for a year if you like, but a lifetime membership is only five years dues and lasts so much longer.

    Take care,

    Just checking on the progress of the club website and the newsletter. I am looking forward to be updated on the 15 Anniversary celebration comming up in July. It will be a short summer with the Blade Show in June and Anniversary program a month later, on the other coast. :D :D

    Still enjoying the Buck Yellowhorse knives...:) ;) :p

    Gene,

    The December newsletter should be received by club members anytime now, they were delivered to the USPS on 12/2. This will be our first 8 page issue, I am kind of excited about that. The contract with our website developers is now in the hands of my attorney. Once he gives us the thumbs up, I'll sign the contract and send it off. I'll keep everyone posted on the website's progress. You sure are right Gene,about a short summer. It'll be a great year for the BCCI!

    I must live out in the boonies. I have received requests for information on the 15 Anniversary Dagger produced by the club, but yet to get the newsletter. I am looking forward to getting this new batch of information.

    Keep up the great job you a doing for the club and its membership.

    I will see you at the Blade show in Atlanta and the 15 Celebration at the Buck plant in July. :D :)

    The newsletter just arrived. It takes longer for the USPS to delivery on the same coast than across country. It sure is filled with alot of quality information on the knives and updates on the 15 Anniversary Celebration.

    Orders for the Custom Yellowhorse Dagger are comming in on a regular basis. I would advise members that are interested to get their orders in quick as to make the edition limit of 100.:rolleyes:

    Keep up the great work on making the BCC even better.

    I hope everyone has a great and happy Holiday Season

    Gene,

    I'm glad you finally received your newsletters. I can't believe it took so long. I am so pleased that we made the move to an eight page newsletter. It gives us the necessary room to get all the information out to our members. Larry Oden wrote a very informative article on the 500 series.

    You're right about ordering the Yellowhorse Dagger. At the price it's being offered at, it won't take long for the 100 to be sold. The prototype you brought to the Ohio NKCA show was outstanding. What a great knife!!

    Thanks for your kind words on leading the BCCI. You and the other board members and officers are a great bunch to work with. There is no shortage of great ideas.
