Default Buck fixed blade two knife set

I've had this for 20+ years but was checking around and can't find another set like it. Knives are Buck 470 and 475.

Heard from Buck today actually took maybe two hours after I emailed them.
These arenít really rare they had a bunch of the knives both sizes and when the sets were built you could end up with a 1988 & 2000 dated knife as a set.

Nice set, that's a keeper. I've always been on the fence with Bucks. I remember my Grandfather switching from Case to Buck pocket knives in the early 70s. I've owned a 119 since the mid 70s, it still looks brand new. For a few years I kind of stopped buying them because they didn't hold an edge and seemed cheap. I bought a 110 auto last year, it's my EDC now. It holds an edge and sharpens easy. I love this knife.

Remember the Buck ad showing a knife cutting a bolt in half? When I was on active duty I worked for a Cdr. that bought a 110 and tried to cut a grade 8 bolt in half, the blade bought so he went out to Buck in El Cajon showed them and they replaced it but explained the difference between grade 8 and a carriage bolt.
My EDC is usually a Case or a Buck small stockman.

I do remember that ad, seems like it ran for a long time. When I mentioned my Grandfather, the knives that he bought were always Stockmans. I like Tarppers myself but he was a Stockman man.

I recall him giving me my first knife when we lived in Georgetown Ca. I think I was about 5. Pretty sure I cut my thumb up the first day I had it.

I have a Buck "cadet" stockman that was given to me on Christmas 1973. It has the knife and bolt logo embedded in the handle. I still use it. I used to spend a lot of time in Georgetown. I love that area. I saw pictures of Stumpy Meadows after the fire a couple of years ago. What a shame. That place will never return to what it was in my lifetime.

My mom and dad built the house right behind the hardware store just outside of town (ACE ) Must of been 1962-63. Back then it was the airport road. My mom was diagnosed with MS a few years later, my dad lost everything, including my mom. It would have been cool to have grown up there, that little open water line was right behind the house.
I took my kids up there a couple years ago, spoke a little to the guy who lived there.

The water ditch was unbelievable. Every time it rained the sink taps would run brown with mud. One of my sisters married into a family up there. Her husband showed me some real nice fishing streams.
