Offered for sale is a vintage first version Buck #112 folding lockback hunting knife, made in USA probably circa 1972. This first version knife features a stainless steel clip point blade, brown linen micarta handle scales, and integral brass bolsters and liners. Prior to 1968, Buck knives were stamped “Buck.” In 1968, Buck added “USA” to the tang stamp. By 1973, the model number was added, and by 1986, date code symbols were added to the tang stampings. Length closed is 4-1/4″ and length open is 7″. The blade has an inverted tang stamp of “Buck U.S.A.” The knife is in good condition overall, showing signs of normal use and carry.
