The HOLY GRAIL for the Buck Knife Collector … This knife was a project Buck Knife did for the Providence Mint back in 1983 and it was included in a sales booklet they put out called Official America’s Cup Collection. According to the booklet, there were to be 2500 pieces. The handles are fine material with actual hand scrimshaw. The representative from BK is pretty sure they did not do anywhere close to the 2500 pieces but has no way of knowing how many were done. The MSRP in 1983 was $495.00Buck Knife 315 Custom Limited Edition “America’s Cup 25th Defense” in wood case with glass top and maroon velvet interior matte Polished BladeBlade Length: 3″Closed Length: 4 ¼”Overall Length 7 ¼”This knife is Unused, Matte Polished Blade and fine material/hand scrimshaw handle Tang is Stamped – Buck 315 This would be a Beautiful Addition to Any Collection.
