    Welcome to KF!!!
    I hope someone can help.

    But...an unmarked Case with pakkawood handles???

    a bit suspicious, to me.
    Looks like a knockoff.
    But I am not a Case expert.

    I used to be better than this.
    See where it got me?

    Bugger!!!
    I typed an edit while the function was available...but it was rejected as too late.

    Anyway, James Parker, once, owned Case...sent the company broke. Company left his control.
    Have been told that, later, he had counterfeits made by others.
    Looking forward to further info or correction.

    It looks like a Bulldog is supposed to and I've seen knives get out of the factory without tang stamps before (I've owned a couple). Getting missed with the tang stamp press made that blade a second and since it didn't get caught until the knife was made, I'd say it left in one of those million dollar lunchboxes. Somebody cashed-in on it. Whether it helps or hurts the value seems to depend on the buyer.

    I know you think you understand what I thought I said, but I'm not sure that you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
