Parker had thousands of different patterns of knives made. We need to see a couple of pictures to be able to comment

What exactly do you want to know about it?

I've owned two versions of that particular lockback whittler pattern in the past, and have seen at least three or four different versions (maybe more) on eBay over the years. It came in a number of different bone handle finishes/colors and with several different master blade etches: "Rio Grande Camp Knife" was etched on one of mine, "Arkansas Tooth Pick" on the other one...photos can be found here:

Both of mine were solid, well made knives...certainly not "high end" but typical of the Parker style. I think they were made in Japan, but not 100% certain (maybe only around 97.33%).
