How to Date Buck Knives

Buck began producing knives in 1961. Beginning in 1973 and continuing until 1985 they bear the model number as well as BUCK and the U.S.A. on the tang stamp. Starting in 1986, a year mark was added. So, knives with no date symbol are pre-1986. To find out the year of manufacture of your Buck knife, compare the symbol on your blade to the chart below.

Additional date information for the Buck 110 Folding Hunter and the 112 Ranger:
1974 to 1980: one dot on either side of the model # (example: .110.)
1980: two dots on the right side of the model # (example: .110..)
1981 to 1986: two dots on either side of the model # (example: ..110..)
