Is case stag getting hard to find again?

There were 37 knife patterns manufactured in the early to mid 1990s that make up the Case Classic line of knives. They are the product of Jim Parker's realization of a dream to replicate classic knives of many years past.

Is case stag getting hard to find again?

Postby sedona » Thu Dec 01, 2016 9:03 pm

A man that I buy most of my knives from told me 2 weeks ago that he wouldn't be able to get any more case stag mini copperlocks in the near future.He said that he could still get some of the smaller knives though.I asked him if there is or was going to be another embargo on sambar stag like 10 or 15 years ago and he really didn't know.Has anyone else heard of this?Thank you

I don't think there has been any stag imported for several years.

I guess it depends on what "era" Case Stag you're referring to. Modern Case Stag might be harder to find though I have not heard anything about it. If you're referring to older Case Stag knives, they're everywhere. I don't have any trouble finding those for sale. You just have to know where to look.

A lot of the knife making supply sites have no stock listed under sambar stag.

I did a short time google search for what is is worth- did not see any new embargo on stag.

There may still be a shortage though........

I was referring to buying new stag knives. I got a hold of a man that makes custom knives and he told me in 1997 there was a brief time that he could get stag but since then there has been an embargo.The man I buy my case stag knives from told me last month that he only had a few larger stag knives like the mini copperlock and when they were gone he would only be able to get smaller stag knives.
