"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…"

"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.…"

Art Cooper replied to Shruby0's discussion 1989 Franklin mint knife set in the group Boker Fans
"Very hard to estimate value. I purchased each knife separately and then an empty display case. The 12 knife set with the case was once listed on the internet at $1,000. That was about five years ago. What did you pay for your set? Collectibles from…"

"Regarding the sale, a 20% discount is more than a bargain and discount should never go lower than that. Two thoughts I want to share and consider I am perhaps not a typical member as I have very limited areas of collecting: first, all items up for…"

Art Cooper replied to Billy Leung's discussion My first Boker knive in the group Boker Fans
"Beautiful knife. I think this is Olive Wood since the wood looks like the Evergreen Series of knives. That series was limited to 500 of each model with only 250 to be available in the US and the others to be sold in Europe. These were serialized so…"

"As of today, I am missing the 1981 and the 1987, Annual Boker Damascus knives. Interested in buying or trading for them. If you have these, let me know what you are interested in."

"Proof no; conclusion based on enough circumstantial evidence to get a conviction along with $4.50 will get you a cup of Starbuck's coffee and that's it...Unless you have that little piece of provenance, you be screwed! You could only sell…"

"It isn't that I don't collect series just not the very obscure ones or those that come out in editions in the many thousands...How many makers have made knives for the 50th anniversary of D-Day as an example and in what numbers? Case has…"

"I do not think we will ever see confirmation in writing that Boker made the FM sportsman series we are talking about. I think we have got what we will get from both companies all we will get unless something really unusual happens. So proof…"

"I have to differ with you on collecting commemoratives and knife sets. Of course all depends on why you are collecting. I primarily collect Boker with five other makers in smaller numbers and lower priority. I especially like to collect Damascus…"
