Very good information Mike. Thank you!
Looks like all of these would be considered fairly limited production, and relatively rare now a days.
Always nice to learn something new.
I have been putting it off a while but today May 29, 2022. I decided it is time to add to this discussion. I went back and pulled out a couple of my OLD catalogs specifically Bulldog Brand Knife Company FALL 2001. I found some info that Kevin d might want to know. The 10095 Barn Door hinge Toothpicks were produced in the following patterns. All are tang stamped 1992. They were made in a quantity of 200 each in Mottled Brown, & Old Yellow, 300 in Candy Stripe, 500 in Christmas Tree, 98 in Cranberry Gold, 10 in Heart Abalone, 5 in Mastodon Ivory. From the Bulldog Brand 1997 20th Anniversary of Bulldog Brand Knives. Three additional Handles in SMOOTH Bone .Marked Prototype, with a Maximum of 5 pieces made, in Red Bone, Antique Green Bone, Tan Bone . As a Side Note the Common Handled Cost from the Catalog was $130.00-$150.00 with the Abalone & Mastodon Price of $1000.00 The prototypes $500.00 each. So the Barn Doors are out their. At 1 time i had a set of the Common Handles but due to the Candy Stripe starting to Gas I decided to sell them.
I had never heard of a 'barndoor' knife let alone ever see one like this.
That handle is really attractive. Looks like a decent sized knife though.
Be sure to keep a close eye on ALL the Case Classics with the Celluloid Handles They have been known to start gassing and they will tarnish the blade. They are pretty knives. I once had a set of the regular issues but sold them as well as all the others in celluloid I had because of that issue.
Nice- Love the Barn Doors. I remember one when stopping at a store on the way home from grammar school in the 1950s There are a Royal and a Wards in my collection.
That's pretty nice. Don't think I've seen many of those.
