Here are a few late 60’s
Some are older pictures, never delete a Buck picture
Some Sterling Silverware appears to have embossed designs. Maybe that technique could be applied to knife handles. Victorinox does Sterling Silver Classics (not my picture).
Here is a few, my 301 that I carried for years, a 307, a 501 that belongs to my wife, and a 105 that I bought new probably in the mid to late 60's.
Have a blessed day,
Couple 307 I just finished blowing out with the compressor.
Here’s a box of beaters I just found in my shop. The range from 66’-85’
Yes they were going to be issued in silver jest as you reported
A small number in brass they were prototypes are starting to show up also
you have a prototype version Dave of the silver or brass. thought I've seen a brass one or a couple of them ya had?
I can contribute a few that I bought in the 70s - First a 119 that I bought in '78 or '79
And a 110 that I bought in '76:
My vintage 119 and 120.
If carried in the belt you don't/won't feel the weight.
Today's silver prices would probably still make it cost prohibitive though.
Buck 105 Pathfinder that my late cousin bought at the MCBCL MCX in 1966.
Buck 105 Pathfinder that I bought at the APG MD PX in 1976.
Buck 301 Stockman my Grandma gave me for my birthday in November 1972 or for Christmas 1972.
Buck 110 Folding Hunter 1988 - award/gift knife from the time when I sold vinyl siding in the late 1980’s. I was a “Tin Man” in those days (as some folks called us)!
Nice knives,Sometimes I think to myself when Hoyt And Al Buck were building these knives that if they ever imagined people someday would be collecting the knives as opposed to using the them for their intentions as good solid tools.
You don’t use yours?
78-79 2 dot... Found on ebay for 55, offered 45 and got it. Worth it. The blade was dull and I guess never sharpened, so I've given it a good edge and I love it. There were quite a few 2 dots that were in questionable shape (chipped ebony and blades sharpened away) that were going for much more. I'm glad I found this one, I'm carrying and using it and enjoying having a knife this solid and it's older than I am!
I laughed when I saw an ad for a knife (like the 110)
But they said "a stainless steel frame, so it will last longer than brass!" and I just shook my head. Brass seems to hold up fine for 40+ years...
Yeah some sellers think their junk is made out of gold. But There are deals to be had also. Like this shedua wood 112 for about $25.
Here’s the 67-71 Schrade made I’m carrying these days.
