Buck Knives started in 1902 with a new way to make a knife blade stay sharp longer. Their history got a shot in the arm with the ever-popular Buck® Folding Hunter Lockback 110 in 1964. From then on, Buck® introduced other designs like a flat stainless steel handle (model 327 Nobleman), synthetic handles (Bantam 283BK), camo handles (Bantam BBW Camo 284cmo) and the tactical style (Black Bones 870-BK).
In 2019 Buck® came up with 2 new designs. The Buck® Graduate 328 and the Buck® Alumni 524. The Graduate has an attractive burlwood handle, which appeals to the collector.
The Alumni knife is a re-invention of the flat stainless steel handle of the 327 Nobleman. But this time, the handles are anodized aluminum, available in four colors. Blue, Black, Gold, and Grey. One of these colors is likely to coordinated with the corporate colors of a business owner. Their logo would be laser engraved on the handle.
