Value?

Here is a before and after shot of my Buck Creek Diamondback Stockman (Thanks, Owd Wullie). I sent the Stockman to the spa for some new scales. The new scales are American Elk Stag from Idaho.

Looks great.

Twas a shame the way the original pile side stag was so plain on that knife.

Looks dandy now.

I use the search function to find a good informative topic on Buck Creek knives. This was the best one I could find. It is longer, has more pictured and more historical information than most of the other threads.
I realize this topic is 7 years old but I picked up a Buck Creek knife at an antique store yesterday and did some researching to see what I could find about the brand. This is the first BC I have ever held in my hand. I must say I am impressed with this little German knife.

Sorry for the quality of the pictures, we are at the coast camping. We went into town yesterday to do a little looking around and I found a few knives. I had to take these pictures with my phone on the picnic table at our campsite, but I think you can see the markings on this knife. Any blade etch that may have been there is long gone. No sign of off-gassing but I do see the scales are starting to raise ever so slightly at the ends so they come off as soon as I get home!

I would love to know more about this knife and the older Buck Creek knives in general. If you have some information about them please share with me and everyone else.
Thanks! ::tu::

There are some really nice Buck Creeks here!
I have several, unfortunately at least half of mine are celluloid, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
I rotate my EDCs every few weeks, but it seems like this old Buck Creek ends up in my pocket much longer than the others.
It sharpens up quickly and seems to hold an edge longer than any of my others.
I think the shield was once a banjo, as it was some sort of commemorative knife.

Thanks!
Keith
