New-to-me Buck 110 4th of July edition on the way

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.

New-to-me Buck 110 4th of July edition on the way

Post by MadeinUSA » Wed Jan 25, 2023 12:34 am

Just found and purchased this on eBay and it will make a nice addition to my collection of USA-made knives with a patriotic/Americana theme

Anyone know what year these were made?

Better pics after it arrives… I captured these from the eBay posting

Nice pickup. There is a very similar Buck 119 (maybe two variations) with the US Flag on the blade like that. OH

Generally speaking, no. But yours looks like a 2020. A link to Buck's list of date codes:

Nice collection Jim. I see you got one of the Betsy Ross handled 105 Pathfinders. I was working when it dropped, those things sold out like a GEC pocketknife! That is one of the coolest US Revolution commemoratives any company has ever made. OH
