BUCK ROYALTY LINE
I collect Buck pocket knives. I also try to limit my collection to the model Buck 110 but sometimes you stray from your objective. Today I have acquired a set of vintage steak knives made in the U.S.A. in the late 70's by Buck knives. They are titled The Royalty Line Custom Cutlery Model 206. They are beautiful and I just had to share them with you.
This set is used but you would be hard pressed to find any wear. They are in pristine condition. The craftsmanship is remarkable. Each knife is handcrafted of 440C steel. The edge is serrated and the base is razor sharp. The handle fits perfectly in your hand. These are works of culinary art.
I debated if I should use them. Some collectors would roll their eyes about using them and risking damage. My Bro & Sister In Law came over for dinner, we cooked tri-tip and I broke the Royalty Line out for a test run. They worked like a charm. They are razor sharp and cut with ease. I promise you that the instant dinner was done I washed them, gently dried and put them back in their pretty presentation box.
