Probably get a better answer if you post the knife and your question in the Bulldog Collectors forum. https://www.allaboutpocketknives.com/kn ... m.php?f=74. ::tu::

Welcome to all you new members. ::handshake::

Tee, you have good looking BD. It is a 3rd generation BD. The "prototype" mark is unlikely to add any value to the knife as it was sometimes added to a blade to increase its desirability to a potential buyer. I don't have any way to distinguish a true prototype from an "artificial" prototype.

Your scales appear to be celluloid. BD made many attractive scales using this material. Do not store it were it will be exposed to heat. Sometimes celluloid may begin to deteriorate or "outgass" which will corrode the knife and any other knives in proximity. I suggest you apply a coating of Renn Wax or other high quality wax to the the entire knife, scales and blades. Many collectors have had celluloid handles for decades with no outgassing. So enjoy your knife. There are many good Bulldogg knives available in our AAPK stores.

Jusy want to welcome you to the AAPK. ::handshake:: It's likely someone will come along eventually who may be able to shed light on what you have.

I can add that the very bottom knife appears to be a Kissing Crane knife [Herman Klass] which, judging by its apparent age, would have been made in Germany. Can you find a mark anywhere that says Solingen? This town in Germany is where they used to be made.

You would be better served if you post your knives and questions in ‹Knife Related Q&A ---► https://www.allaboutpocketknives.com/kn ... um.php?f=4
They will get much better exposure there and bring you answers to your questions much quicker.
