4th GENERATION STOCKMAN

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.

4th GENERATION STOCKMAN

Postby Quick Steel » Thu Oct 18, 2018 9:53 pm

Today I received this 1996 Bulldog Stockman.[NOS] I usually prefer larger Stockmans but this 3 1/2" closed is appealing in its size and lightness for easy carry. The stag scales, attractive tho they are, are not perfectly matched. One pin is a bit proud, but other than that BD did a good job on this. The date makes this the first year of the 4th generation which ended in 2000.

Thanks. I know a lot of people prefer the smaller size and lighter weight. My thinking is that this is fine for light duties. But to turn a stockman loose on somewhat heavier items, say rope or thick cardboard, I'd prefer a larger heaver model of that pattern. I might be mistaken in my estimate; and I won't find out as this one will join my other canine queens. :)

Nice Stockman QS; I prefer the 3-1/2" size, find it a good compromise between easy carry and useful. OH

I can appreciate that OH. And the smaller lighter size is definitely handier.
