David Yellowhorse. The beginning.

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.

Welcome aboard Oscar. ::handshake::
That's a real beauty. You were fortunate to have met David Yellowhorse at the show. I have not had that opportunity.

I have a early 'Lacy' 112 with a satin finish blade before he used mirror polished blades directly from Buck. One of 16 to 18..I read a add in a old online gun forum and contacted the poster entirely online. I ended up sending a postal money order and a return postage paid envelope to a PO box in New York lol! My brother said I would never see the money or the knife but 5 days later it came! It's a real rarity a USED Yellowhorse Buck. That was 10 years ago and right now it's going back to him to have a Sunface engraved on the bolsters making it a 'Fancy Lacy' and a true one of one. My Brother David just went out to his shop with the BCCI folks and had a great time!

I’ve been out (from Central Texas) to California a number of times over the last 12 months...

On one of the drives, along I-10, IIRC, I saw the sign and building for Yellowhorse Knives. Now, I wish time was on my side and I had stopped. It seemed an unlikely birthplace for the knives so highly regarded by all of us here!

Thank you OF, for telling the story and sharing the stunning 112 in your collection.
Beautiful knife & great history.

-Bill

I’ll certainly make it a point to stop on my next trip that way.
I’d like to at least take some pictures of the building, and if possible, go inside to see the “goods.”
