I contacted Buck Knives about this knife and was told that in the early years of the company they used to make custom length knives for customers. They also told me the year range it was made via the upside down BUCK on the blade and that I could send it in for a SPA treatment. After speaking with them I decided to send the knife in for the SPA treatment and for them to verify the length. The Blade, Phenolic handle and double spacers are in near mint condition.
This is a rare knife. Because of its beauty, age and extra long unique blade length. Is an extra long 7-7/8. Adding to its rarity and value is the fact that the Buck USA stamp is upside down. I have never seen a Buck of this age in such excellent condition nor have I seen one with a blade nearly 8 long.
