Nice cobra I have one identical to it :)

Here is something different. A true Kaufmann, not a buck creek branded knife, but note how similar the pull is to the pull on my premium stock. I have two of these "little" beauties.

muskrat man wrote:$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

Yea, there were about ten knifes that I bought all together. That was back in the late 70's or into the 80's. A couple were stockmans and the rest were congress pattern. Some two bladed and some four bladed. Seems like I remember a couple of the congress knifes were a tad smaller than the others. I remember they all cost $40 back then. I let a friend pick any one he wanted and I sold the rest to buy some swell end jacks and moose pattern knifes. I don't think I sold a one of them for more than $10. Like I said hind sight is always 20-20. ::dang::

jrlw and Muskrat Man,

Following this thread is a bit like watching a tennis match. It's your serve JRLW. :lol:

Just playin with ya. I'm enjoying the show. Wish I had a bunch to post. Those Buck Creeks are one of the most under appreciated brands out there IMO. I had a stag Bobcat years ago I'd sure love to have back today. One of the best looking knives I've owned, and a great knife to carry, quality steel, and excellent construction.

1976-1978 you can date buck creeks by the style of shield used.
