    Those are great Roland, I have always enjoyed the creativity and scales that Frank Buster used on his knives...

    Here is a pretty early "Kicken Chicken", notice that all it says is Solingen Germany..

    Sunburst, would your F'nR be one of the very early ones ? i.e. were there a few runs before tang was stamped Frank Buster Cutlry Co. ? roland

    It is my understanding that the Roosters that read 'Solingen Germany' on the front tang are some of the first Fight'n Roosters made.

    Every time I get rid of my Roosters I find myself picking up another one...I just always find one that is unique and catches my interest.

    Thanks,

    I think you are dead on Roland, that has to be the exact same tang stamp....

    the name of the multicolored scales is "Christmas Tree"; a celluloid material ( may be unstable) which has a mixture of glitter green, red, yellow and silver. some of the early Buck Creek Indian Head stock knives had Christmas Tree with fish scales imbedded. those knives were made in the '70s but from an old cache of celluloid material made before WWII. those and the F'nRs are the only ones i know of with these type of scales. roland
