Rare gold-etched India stag dagger from the Buck Custom shop. Buck Custom has created this dagger as an authentic recreation of the actual personal battle dagger Geronimo had carried back in the days. This limited edition of 2000 daggers was issued in 1983 as the 100-year anniversary of Geronimo’s surrender. This fine specimen is serial number 1230 – engraved on the nickel-silver oval shield pinned on one handle. Original COS describing the dagger and its history is included with the knife.

In September of 1883, the great Apache warrior Geronimo surrendered to General George Crook in Skeleton Canyon, Arizona, after fighting for his homeland for nearly 30 years. This dagger has gold-etched scenes from the actual photographs taken after Geronimo and his remaining warriors surrendered to the US troops. The dagger is still in its original hardwood presentation case, complete with original COA, A Word from the Buck’s Chairman paper, care instructions, and 1983 magazine ad with a hand-written note that states “ordered 4-5-84”; a rare find!

An absolute mint condition with original edge; the tip is intact. Indian sambar stag handle scales with engravable nickel shield on one side. Full-tang construction; T-cross guard is solid nickel-silver; all parts are solid with zero play. The dagger is about 11-3/4 ” / 30 cm overall; the blade is about 6-3/4″ / 17.2 cm. Hardwood case is about 17″ x 6″ x 2.5″. This rare Buck Custom 1983 Geronimo dagger is super-hard to find in mint condition with the original case/packaging & papers; don’t miss your chance to add it to your collection!

This Buck Custom 1983 Geronimo dagger has not been cleaned or tampered with in any way, it is in 100% original “as is” condition. These are the actual photos.
