Hoyt Buck produced the first Buck Knife in 1902. Hoyt and his son Al moved to San Diego and set up shop as H.H. Buck & Son in 1947. Al Buck revolutionized the knife industry in 1964 with the infamous Model 110 Folding Hunter. The company's innovative history and attention to quality have made for many great collectible knives.
I’ve never read that Buck owned Arium Engraving and don’t think they did. Jeff Hubbard would know. OH
Deep in the guts of most men is buried the involuntary response to the hunter's horn, a prickle of the nape hairs, an acceleration of the pulse, an atavistic memory of his fathers, who killed first with stone, and then with club...Robert Ruark
Hi I got a great long answer about Aurum, they work out of Buck, I never see the trade mark any more it was a + I had a 700 series pony with the + with a & e it was years ago, I sold it , it brought a lot of money ,but I wish I had kept it after I noticed that the trade mark no longer appeared on the knives. Thanks George God bless P/S I did spell Aurum wrong
I just attended a seminar on Aurum Etching at the Buck Factory in Idaho and I believe they said that 1989 was the last they had any etching done. Here is a link to an article that was in Knife World...it's a little more detailed than the blade forums article. www.aurumengraving.net/pdfs/knifeworld.pdf
I have a hard time trusting someone who doesn't like dogs...but if my dog doesn't like someone, I'll trust that.
