Charlie Dorton brought the Bulldog Brand to life in 1978. He began importing them from the Olbertz factory in Germany until 1987. The brand went extinct for a few years until Jim Parker bought it in 1991 and resurected the brand under the Parker Knife Co. umbrella where the brand is still going strong.

The A refers to a second generation knife. Charlie Dorton had the 1st generation knives made around 1986, Jim Parker had the 2nd generation knives made around 1991 although he used the older dated blades. Your knife is not a 1st generation canoe as the greenbone jigging on the 1st generation Knives was different. So your knife is either a 2nd generation knife of a 3rd generation knife depending on what is stamped on the tang. That’s the only way to tell for sure.
