    Is there anyone out there that has the Buck 184. I beleive it was in a Stalone movie years ago. If I could find one complete it would go between $500 & $1000. It would help finish my collection but I would be very worried about fakes. Any thoughts? Thanks

    The BUCK 184 was not in any Rambo movie. The original Rambo knife was designed and made by Jimmy Lile and he passed away on May 5th 1991.....

    You could try posting a WTB ad in the trade blanket. I can offer no help on the issue of possible counterfeits. Good luck.

    I haven't seen a buck master since the 80s..when big giant Rambo knives were the thing...heck,me and my buddy had some cheap Rambo knives we got a flea market and went crazy in the woods..we made shelters and such. Could not get an edge on em and we're all ways lost with the lil compass...matches didn't work...but we had fun!!

    That was a fairly complex knife and especially sheath. I would think it would be hard to fake, at least convincingly.

    Is there known to be such a problem?

    Those things were never common, even when they were new. They weren't cheap, and they weighed more than an airweight revolver.

    Bought one new back in the 80s and sold the knife, sheath, compass and sharpner for less than 300 on ebay a year or so ago. Some Guy down South bought it to keep on his salt water boat. Knife was ok but not great for what I use a knife for.
