Roger Russell replied to Robin Peck's discussion Vintage Boker fixed blade in the group Boker Fans
"Hi,  The fact that it has Germany stamped on the tang makes it post 1891 (Steel tariff). So, its age is somewhere between 1891 - 1944 per Mark Zalesky's Boker article in Knife World. The camping scene was originally painted with enamel…"

Roger Russell replied to Gary Kennedy's discussion Scott King
"I certainly hate to hear this. I bought a LOT of knives from Scott over the years and he is the reason I joined iKC early on. I only met him once at Parker's knife show years ago, but spoke with him frequently via email until he got out of…"

Roger Russell replied to Jaron's discussion Boker Slim Sleeveboard Whittler? Or is it?
"Here's three variations of that pattern and all 3 are H. Bokers. Boker also produced this pattern with pearl handles. They put bails on some knives and not on others of the same, exact pattern. Hope this helps and nice knife!"

"Thanks John. Boker used that trademark from 1887-1918. I know it's 1891 or later because it has the country of origin (Germany) stamped on the back-side of the tang."

Eclipse Cutlery Co.

"Roger, An awesome old knife--- I came across a B&W drawing that was from a 1910 Boker Catalogue--  The drawing looks remarkably similar to yours--- Jigging  and profile and damascus etch--- That might help narrow down the date if is…"

H. Boker & Co's Improved Cutlery

"That knife is so sweet on so many levels! Beautiful scales with file-worked blades and back-springs just to mention the more obvious ones. So sweet! "

"Michael,   Your knife is a premium stockman (pattern # 7474) with delrin handles. The master blade has been reshaped is why the appearance of it is different than what one would expect in a stockman pattern. The knife was made in Solingen,…"

Roger Russell replied to Paul Clayton's discussion Arbolito in the group Boker Fans
"Hi,   The word Arbilito is Spanish for "little tree."  The Arbolito stamped knives were also sold by Casa Boker (1865 - present) in Mexico City who imported them from Germany for the Spanish market there."

Profile Information

Profile
A pocket knife is still an intimate personal possession of the individual who carries it and consequently deserves the best of materials, finish and workmanship in its production. (Quoted from Boker's 1928 Cutlery Catalog).

Favorite Kind of Knives
I collect only H. Boker knives and the older, the better. The H. Boker & Co's Improved Cutlery tang stamp is my favorite. I like all patterns, but am partial to the jumbo jacks and other large frame knives.

Hi Roger, I don't drop by here very often, too many other things to do. But I try to keep an eye on things and sometimes folks drop me an email and let me know that I should check out what's going on at iKC.

Roger, I hear from Scott King that you are a BOKER collector.

True?

Just found your comment on the BOKER I sold you. I remenber that knife real well. Back then I had just bought a big collection of knives just to get 50 JACK KNIFE BEN knives. I kind of went over my budget and had to sell some of the other knives to recoup my wild spending spree. Wish I could have kept all of them.
