9ball,

I remember when that knife once spawned an unusual thread at Bernard Levine's forum...

I'm not so sure about the humor, but it was different. :roll: :mrgreen:

Hello Bill :)

He could be right. These were some of the first Fight'n Roosters knives put out, if I remember correctly. There was only a handful of these patterns made. Back then the tang stamps were only a fancy SOLINGEN. I was talking with a German guy from the factory at the Blade Show when it was in Knoxville, TN one year and he told me in the beginning they were trying to get out anything that had a tang stamp on it. :|
Then came the pre' 83 tang stamps :)

Thanks for the info/link ::tu::

Later :)

There are so many nice knives on display it's almost embarassing at times to show my measley pics but here is my newest German addition. This is a 1986 German Eye 3 blade trapper that I have been wanting to get my hands on for a while but could not find one that was a good deal.

I am very happy to have gotten this because one of my favorite things to collect as far as knives are concerned are 3 & 5 bladed trappers and this one was purchased for $36.00 compared to the $177.00 one sold for just like it a while back...

I agree with Joe! Where do you guys find such good buys? My resourses must be drying up. :(

Thank you Gentlemen...Even a Blind Squirrel finds a nut sometimes :D

What really happened is the seller had it listed in Case knives and called it a beast and when folks went to look at a Case Beast they found this instead. I just lucked up on it by viewing the sellers other items and could not believe the price I got it for...I was all giddy and stupid over the great deal I got (My wife thinks I am nut).


Thanks,
