Looking for "Red Stag" (Germany) Pocket Knives

Postby PhntmArcher » Sat Sep 17, 2005 12:30 pm

I am looking for "Red Stag" pocket knives. I have a few of them that I purchsed in the mid to late 80's. They were made in Germany, and I believe they were distributed from somewhere in Tennessee... maybe.
Any info would be appreciated.

Welcome,
Most Bulldog Brand knives that are stag handled will fit the bill for you. If they say stag, it's usually the European Red Deer. They are listed on eBay all the time.

Here is one example...

This seller (The Parker family) owns the Brand.

Red Stag Brand Pocket Knives

Postby PhntmArcher » Sat Sep 17, 2005 4:45 pm

Hello, thanks for the reply, however, the particular knives that I am looking for are Red Stag Brand knives, not necessarily "stag" handled knives. I used to get them from a distributor in Tennessee (Goodwin).

Ooops... :oops:
Sorry, my misunderstanding. That picture does help.

That mark/brand is not listed in Goins' Encyclopedia of markings. So, at the risk of being 0 for 2 ( :D ), I'll SPECULATE that these were a special factory order done for one of the smaller guys. Sorta like a smaller version of Frank Buster and his Fight'n Roosters. Probably done on contract by one of the German companies like Olbertz, Schlieper, or Robert Klaas (who does use a similar small circular shield on some Kissing Cranes).

With that said...My search of the Internet was not fruitful, so I really didn't help much in locating any "Red Stags" for you. :cry:
Sorry. Is Goodwin still in the business? Maybe at one of the area knife shows?

Good luck,

Bill

Red Stag was made in Solingen Germany and distributed by Goodwin Enterprises of Chattanooga Tennessee. They were made from 1983 to the present. I believe them to be very limited production knives, I live 20 minutes from Chattanooga and have only seen a few of them locally. I bought one thats a Chattanooga Coca Cola Bottling Comemerative 1 of 500 from 1984. I'm not sure what German Cutlery made the Red Stag though.

Never seen any actual "RED STAG" product line other than your pic, but do enjoy the look of my actual red stag made by Bulldog

Have a collection of "Red Stag" Goodwin knives from the 80's may consider selling.

Sure did notice the date on the post would assume since it has not been closed it's still active. Is it not possible there may be person(s) who use this forum that may have an interest in "Red Stag" (Germany) knives and those who do not can simply disregard the post ?

Are you still looking for the Red Stag pocket knife? I can tell you that the man who was the designer and worked with Coca-Cola comemrative knives did in fact live in Chattanooga TN and passed away this past year. I have #1 of 300 3 blade whittler he gave to me last year and I believe that his son has the rest of his personal collection other than the one that I have. Are you interested in purchasing it?
