    Pretty cool.
    Do you have any idea how old it is?

    I found it in the 1972-1980 catalogs, and the one in the 1981 catalog is different. It must be 72-80

    Your display has dovetail joints and the access door is a little different. I would say 72-79. I don't doubt it was in the 1980 catalog but those photos are made in advance. And these counter displays changed in the 80's. It likely lost the red velvetine cloth that was over those moldings,
    which the knives fit in. I had one like that but the access door on mine was a little different. Those are hard to come by. I gave it to a Buck collector friend, who is no longer with us. I don't regret it one minute. DM

    I made my own drawer for my display and I never thought cutting out fifty little holes that’s going to get covered with material would take as long as it did 0B4392DC-810F-4248-B3D4-258FE2046426.jpeg

    Bucklife, a very good job. A handsome display now. Are those 525's (the basic size)? DM
