Welcome Home...THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

Boker Fans .. help me out here .. what year was this stamped ???I've only found conflicting info.

There exist similarities in the 1900, 1907, & 1915 examples.This would put it between 1924 & 1935.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This narrows it right down to between 1891 & 1944. 

?? Does anyone have definitive information on this ???

The tree looks like the one marked "1900" more than any other.

It does.

Germany stamped anywhere on the knife makes it post 1891 and the tang stamp was in use from 1891-1944 There is no umlaut over the O in Boker which would mean the knife is 1932 or later. So 1891 -1932. Does the knife have a shield on it?

Great Info Ron!

Indeed .. Thank you !!!

This is one I've just never been able to nail down to my satisfaction !!

Thank you very much, Ron. This all helps nail down the stamping date better than what I was doing.

I picked it up @ an antique store 20+ yrs ago. One of my peculiar interests in sharp things is the history & stamping's of the cutlery industry. As such .. I have a variety.

Not all in good shape though. I've been known to buy broken knives purely for a stamping I either didn't have or didn't know. 

Thanks again all,

D ale

The info I have on this shield is that is was use circa 1920s-1930s. That is one cool knife! Where did you pick it up? It is in nice shape for its age. I am in no way an expert so I hope this helped you out though?

Well D ale, I can see I've been about as much help as a "Wet Door Mat". But hey, what if it's real dry, you might want a "Wet Door Mat".....lol
