Fight'n Rooster does not have a "Tang Stamp Chart"
Actually the Fight'n Rooster Knives only have three (3) different blade tank stamps throughout its entire production run.
One cannot know what actual year his/her knife was made, only a grouping of year runs, with the exception of course of some master blades having a production date, and many having this date often with how many were produced.

The first stamp used on Fight'n Rooster knives (rear tang) was Frank Buster Cutlery Company Germany. The front of the blade was stamped with the two Rooster Trademark and the word Solingen underneath the roosters. There was no wording above the Roosters.
Used from 1977 - 1982.

In 1982 the rear tang stamp was changed to Frank Buster Celebrated Cutlery Germany. The front stamp had the words Fight'n Rooster added above the two roosters.
The vast majority of Fight-n Rooster knives have this stamping, and are known as (Celebrated)
Used from 1982 - 1994.

The rear stamp was changed in late 1994 to Frank Buster & Son Celebrated Cutlery Germany. The front rooster stamp did not change.
Used from late 1994 - Through last production.

You will on occasion discover other Fight'n Rooster stamps, but they are not common and will not necessarily increase the value.
It's always important to know what you don't know.

I ran across his Boker tang stamp chart from Knife World, November 2009. The chart is posted on AAPK and posted in two parts ion the very first page of this topic. However, the AAPK search engine could not pick up the post of the Boker tang stamps because the words "Boker tang stamps" were not in the text of the post, only in the JPEG file. The search engine only finds words listed in text not words in JPEG files.

A suggestion for everyone listing tang stamp charge from this point forward; in addition to any pictures you want to post also described what it is, e.g. "Boker Tang Stamps" so that the search engine can more easily find out the chart and save someone looking through pages and pages of tang stamp charts.

I am assuming there were a totally different set of tang stamps on Case Scissors. I can't seem to locate a reference to these. Is there a ref. guide? Or does anyone recognize the age of this Scissor stamp? The font reminds me of 1928 Case Knives. I have searched until I'm blue in the face....Any help will give me the option to go on to sleep or continue with the www. THX littleoasis

Hoping to get this thread back on original topic/intent. viewtopic.php?f=4&t=39799#p386211

If you have information and examples of a maker's stamps and the dates when they were used, post them here. If you have a question about a particular stamp, and can't find it already posted here, please make a new post with your question in the Knife Q&A section, or the brand-specific section, whichever is more appropriate.

Thus thread is for posting reference material, not Q&A. Thanks! ::handshake::

I hear the Queen Cutlery Historical Society group is working on an updated, and more accurate guide of all tang stamps used on S&M and Queen knives for the last 130 years. Whenever it is released, I'll place a copy in here.
I collect Tuna Valley knives, and NKCA Youth knife prototypes.

Don't know if this will help anyone out or not but here is a picture(and some closeups)of a souvenir of the Phillippines showing the various types of weapons they used over the years.The knives are made of bits of thin aluminum and decorated having carved wood handles. They range in size from about 3 to 5 inches in length.
