Ivory Sowbelly Stockman II

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.

Picked up this pre ban Ivory stockman form our own Sanders Knives. It is the larger 3 7/8 model. A fissure in the tooth on the back side but I like it. Comparison picture with it's little brother.

The feel of an ivory knife in your hand is truly awesome. The older it is the prettier it gets. Nice purchase!

The ivory Bulldogs i have owned did not show any grain with a 9x loupe. Can you see any evidence of grain on this sowbelly ?
Do you have any of the GEC ivory knives for comparison ?

kj, for information my BD ivory sowbelly has very clear grain. [I once mistook white micarta for ivory; definitely no grain. ::dang:: ]

I wonder if ivory from center area of a tusk shows little to no grain ? Maybe the 2 ivory BD's i had were hafted with 'center' ivory ?
Ivory Micarta does show lines which can be mistaken for ivory. I have been mistaken a couple of times thinking Micarta was ivory.
