Bulldog tang stamp- research question

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.

Bulldog tang stamp- research question

Post by Gone2Three » Thu Mar 26, 2020 3:05 am

Hello folks, so I'm just some digging into the brand and had a tang date stamp related question....maybe someone could help out.
I just purchased what was "possibly" 1st gen , it has a 1983 year stamped on it.
Now I came across this tang stamp, different knife that doesn't have a year and the line stamp is different. So what generation is this considered? Sorry it's just a little confusing

Made in 1993, 3rd generation just like the one you have dated 1993. The difference is this knife is stainless steel whereas the one dated 1993 is carbon steel.
