Fibonacci Day was named after Leonardo Fibonacci, an Italian mathematician who discovered the natural sequence of numbers in nature in 1202. It’s a series of numbers which is the sum of the previous 2 numbers: 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,etc. It is found in hurricane patterns, DNA and the petals of some flowers.
Why celebrate it today? November 23 is 11/23, the first four numbers in the sequence.
Buck Knives salutes Leonardo for making this earth-shaking discovery over 800 years ago.
On November 10, 1775, the Continental Congress established the Continental Marines, in preparation for the American Revolution. The recruitment office was in the Tun Tavern on Water Street in the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After the war, the Continental Marines was abolished, only to be replaced in 1798 by the United States Marine Corps (USMC). It was placed under the Secretary of the Navy at that time.
Engraved Buck Knives proudly salutes the United States Marine Corps and thanks all the marines for their valuable service. We encourage you to also thank a Marine, take them to lunch, or give them engraved Buck knives in appreciation.
