Another tang stamp question.

Hoyt Buck produced the first Buck Knife in 1902. Hoyt and his son Al moved to San Diego and set up shop as H.H. Buck & Son in 1947. Al Buck revolutionized the knife industry in 1964 with the infamous Model 110 Folding Hunter. The company's innovative history and attention to quality have made for many great collectible knives.

Another tang stamp question.

Post by fredswartz » Wed Feb 20, 2019 12:20 am

I bought a NOS 501 Esquire with the anvil stamp.
On the non tang side stamped in block letters is
“FB”. Any significance or explanation? Thanks, Jerry.

Factory Blemish. I bought several Bucks so marked at their "hockey rink" sale a few years ago.

Sometimes those blems are hard to see. I have a 408 FB that the only blem I see on it is that stupid FB stamp.
