Hello, I joined because I figured if it was made by Boker, whatever the name on the blade, then it is a Boker, right? It's a cool knife, I like it a lot, so I guess that makes me a Boker fan, so here…Continue

I said I'd show another Boker, here it is, and again curious of the type of scales on this knife, bone, stag, or delrin. The material is hard as brick, has some luster, and look and feel as my Case…Continue

I have maxed out the display space in my knife room/office with 18 display cases on every spare inch of wall space.

My collection is too large for me, because I like to keep my knives on display to appreciate again every day and space limitations keep me from expanding further. This may be a good thing.

Wow - Thanks for all the info Art - all good to know.  btw - you must have quite a collection - if you 2 of these!

Beautiful knife. I agree with you to leave the cross marks. One of the two I have in my collection also has these marks, so I think they are from the original maker. This knife first showed up, as far as my catalogs show, in 2000 with cocobolo wood. It retailed then for $110. They had another one out with G-10 handles that retailed for $99.95, and it was also the 2000 Damascus knife of that year with 300 layers by Manfred Sachse, the master of his time.  This Damascus Annual had snake wood handles and retailed for $485. They were limited to 999 and the one in my collection is #107. That is everything I know about this Walker Design knife.

Here is a Boker - Michael Walker Designed,  Liner Lock.   Not sure of the date on this but probably in the mid 1990's ??  I picked this up used, but it is pretty mint, box and all,   I am debating whether or not to smooth out the cross way marks on the scales or leave them,  probably leave them, as I am sure that they are  from the original maker.  70mm blade length, just about 170mm overall... maybe 90 grams
