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.
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. kj
