Not a collector, but...

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.

Nice one. I really like the Fight'n Rooster small curved Jacks. There are many different ones, some with caps, some without, and with pearl, jigged bone or Stag handles, single & double blade, with master as in O.P. knife, or clip or spearpoint.
This would be a fine pattern to collect.

The location of the shield is unusual.

There are a few Fight'n Roosters with the shield at the non-bolstered end; i.e. OP knife has shield in original position.

I managed to snag a matching stockman, also from 1987.

Truck, by "matching" do you mean both have stag handles ? or is there something else that makes them "matching" ?

Truck you are picking up some mighty fine knives. If you ever consider selling that stockman, hope you will PM me.

In addition to the similar Stag, they were both made in 1987. Not of the same series though.
