BUCK Vietnam War era 119 Special circa 1967-1969 hunting/fighting knife. Rare unused with original leather sheath, retail box, papers included. Rare this nice and complete.
Vintage 1960th Buck’s 119 Special Hunting/Fighting knife in rare unused condition; comes with the original all-leather sheath, Buck’s care instructions/registration, yellowish wrapping paper, and correct retail box. Due to its size and quality a lot of these large Bucks had been privately purchased by American GIs during the Vietnam War to be used as fighting knives; this type was very popular with the troops. The knife comes with the original top-flop “pistol holster type” black leather sheath – rare this nice and complete.
The knife is about 10-1/2″ / 26.7 cm overall; the blade is about 6″ / 15.2 cm; it has not been re-sharpened; original factory edge is razor-sharp; the tip is intact; a few minor hairlines on the blade are noted for accuracy. Vintage “upside-down” 2-line BUCK / USA logo on ricasso. Black plastic handle with 4 brown micarta spacers; polished aluminum pommel and heavy-duty guard; all parts are tight. Original BUCK-marked leather sheath is in excellent condition as well; the leather is soft and supple. The original retail box is in fare condition; one side of the top lid has been torn; the bottom half has a puncture on one side but the overall condition is pretty good, considering the age. This BUCK Vietnam War era 119 Special set is in 100% serviceable condition still; it will be a great addition to any vintage Bucks collection.
