    Found a couple of \"Buck\" knives in my junk.

    I've been rooting around the house finding a lot of stuff I've had but subsequently "lost" in various drawers and boxes.

    Here are a couple of Buck knives I bought from a little Pawn Shop in Oceanside California in 1984-1985. The shop was owned by Harry Camphuysen and was a hangout for me, the gunsmith was a great guy as was Harry and the other fellas that worked and visited there.

    The first one is a Buck 184, it's the abrasive "sand" blasted model, bits of impurities in this process prompted a change to a different method in short order as I understand. There were a few of the prototypes around, some really large examples, machette like in size, but I didn't buy any of them. I bought three of these giving one to a medical doctor I was stationed with up in Oakland, CA and another to a retired Marine Warrant Officer for use as a survival knive on his son's light airplane.

    The other knife is a prototype of the Buck Titanium (186). This knife has a Buck 110 blade (stamped BUCK 110) with a Phrobis stamp on the opposite side of the blade. The handle had only the Phrobis stamp in place of the Buck logo.

    Here you can see the Phrobis stamps.

    Here's an article and website I ran across just the other day after I re-discovered my knives.

    That old Buck 184 is spoken for, I just figured I'd post a picture or two.


    Here are few pictures of another old knife I have. This is one that I'm told was made by my Uncle Marvin Michael "Mike" King in WWII and then given to my father for use in the Atlantic theater in WWII. After the war the knife was returned to my Uncle Mike. Apparently there were a number of knives made by sailors in WWII many may have had a common pattern/theme. I got the knife from my Uncle Mike in the the late 1960's and figure to give it to my son someday.

    Anyway, for your enjoyment a WWII historical item.

    Dave King; The knife that Pat made for you was made of unauthorized and wrongly appropriated items taken from my stock of titanium prototype parts. It would be best if you contacted me right away. HC
