Fight'n Rooster Grand Daddy Barlow

Frank Buster started the Fight'n Rooster line of knives shortly after he first visited the Olbertz factory back in 1975. The old tooling and handle variations that the German factory offered allowed Frank to contract an astounding variation of extremely high quality German manufactured knives.

Fight'n Rooster Grand Daddy Barlow

Postby Tyler.Hatfield » Wed Feb 25, 2015 5:12 am

I'm looking for how to figure the date out of one I picked up today, It's got a christmas tree pattern and its 1776-1976 Bicentennial. Any info about these knives would be great help.

hey their bud!.. good to meet ya

i love those knives.. they are what is called pre 82 fightn rooster IE-made before or during 1982..although like all production knives their are exceptions.

if you did some reading you would find the Frank Buster started Fight"n Rooster in 1975 roughly..i dont know the exact date.

this one dates to the year 1976 though. and 600 of each were made.... if you have a pic i could tell you exactly which xmas tree cell it was...as he used a few.

pic would rock. ::tu::

hope this finds you well.

A book that I have enjoyed is Jim Parker's Fight'n Rooster Knives Yesterday-Today-Tomorrow.

Looks like that one has been outgassing, better separate from your other knives.
