When your name becomes synonymous with a certain type of knife, you know you’ve done something right. Just like Dumpster, Frisbee, Jacuzzi and others, Buck has become a generic term for the hunting knife created by Buck Knives.
While there have been countless imitations of the Buck knife, few stand up to the original Model 110.
To honor this revolutionary knife first created in 1964, Buck Knives is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Model 110 with a commemorative version of the knife. According to a press release at Ammoland, the 50th Anniversary Edition 110 will come with a genuine leather sheath, Macassar Ebony Dymondwood handle, brass bolsters, a custom blade stamp denoting 50 years and an anniversary medallion on the handle.
More than 15 million Model 110s have been produced since 1964, making it one of the best-selling and most recognizable knives in the world.
Along with the commemorative version, Buck Knives is having a sweepstakes that has a grand prize of a free Chevy Silversado 4×4. If you want more details on how to enter, check out the Buck website. The company is also looking for stories about how you’ve used the Model 110 over the years.
