Nice Congress there.
The plain shield were used 1970- 1973 or therabouts i have to check my book to be exact. I love the plain shield and crossed sword shield knives. I'm looking for a trapper to add to my collection. I recently got to handle a mint example with slick black and it was a jewel of a knife. I like how thin they ground thier blades, take an effortless edge

nice, is that a crossed swords shield I see on that one? That's interesting becuase the bear and bull trademark wasn't used until the early 80's and that shield was discontinued in the early-mid 70's. Nice knife though, I liked thier slick black.
Here is my favortie buck creek stockman pattern, thier "premium stock", the blade shape really appeals to me. This is also a 2nd shield varient with cracked ice

Was any other well known German Cutlery companies involved or connected to Buck Creek knifes? I had a few Buck Creek knifes but they weren't in the patterns I was looking for so sadly, I sold them to buy some knifes that were in the patterns that I collect. The Buck Creek knifes seemed to be good quality made with very good fit and finish and would have suited me well if they were in the patterns I collect. Funny thing about the Buck Creek knifes I bought was the guy I bought them from sold them to me at a really low price. He said he was told that they were a new line of knifes from Boker when he bought them, and after he bought them he found out they weren't Boker in any way. He said "I aint going to stand here and lie to you mister, they're probably some of those slant eyed made knifes. :lol: I think he was asking $6.00 each for them separate or $4.00 each if I bought them all. So I bought them all. Wish I had them all back at the price I paid for them the first time. ::nod:: Hind sight is always 20-20.

$4.00 Each!? ::dang:: ::dang::

The buck creek knives were made by Kaufmann and sohne up until they were bought my taylor cutlery I think in the late 80's early 90's. They had a very limited range of patterns. So far I have recorded few patterns compared to most cutlery manufacturers.

4 different styles of congress (both 2 and 4 blade)
5 different styles of stockman (including the two of the indian head variation before Clarence Risner got ahold of the trademark)
copperhead
whittler
trapper
swing guard
small barehead lockback


The stockmen included: diamondback, little diamondback, premium stock, large indian head, small indian head
The congress included: slim 4 blade, slim 2 blade, large 4 blade (bobcat) large 2 blade (cobra)

They used a lot of snakes in thier etches, thier whittler had a snake etch, as did thier small lockback.

they used a wide variety of handle materials, mostly various celluloids but later knives also had jigged bone and stag handles. A few earlier knives had ebony handles as well.

hope this is of some interest/help

Nice stockman MM!the shield on the bear&bull is a pick and shovel (has "I DIG COAL" etch on blade). Millard Burns of Burns &Company of London Kentucky started importing knives in 1968,knives were made to Burns specifacations by the Heinrick Kaufmann & Sohnne Co. of Soligen Germany until 1985.Taylor and Frost were in on later knives.
