New poster, found this site looking up info on my new-to-me Bucklite 422, with a symbol than almost looks like an A so from what I can tell a 1988. I carried a Bucklite for at least 15-18 years. It was my first real knife, I remember buying it new at a Wal-Mart when I was just out of high school. For some reason, it was missing the sheath and so it was marked down and on sale. I liked the way it was light in my pocket, and easy to open with short fingernails. One day I was working on my boat in the driveway and left it laying in the boat and someone decided they wanted it. That was a good 6-7 years ago and I've bought alot of knives trying to find one I liked as well. Saturday, I just happened to go into a flea market across from my kids school and found my "new" Bucklite 422 for $10. Not the exact generation as my old one, but close enough. Blade looks like it might be a hair shorter where it could have been broken and fixed, but it might be made that way and just a little different blade than my last one.
