I can't stop playing around with this old 712 pattern lever lock from the 1980s. The rosewood handles look great, and nobody does a blade etch like Boker.…Continue

No problem Mark. There were a lot of really interesting articles this month: Besides the Boker LTD Editions, I really enjoyed the article on the A-F first gen knives with the mystery serial number, and the cipher blade knives too. I had never heard of those before!

Thanks for pointing that out, Ricky -- I appreciate it anytime folks spread the word about what we're trying to do.

The February 2018 issue of KNIFE magazine just arrived today! There's a good article by Bruce Voyles on the Boker Limited Edition Knives that started in 1971.

Yessir that's all of them. Series I on top and Series II on the bottom!

Thanks for the kind words, Ricky, I appreciate it. That's a nice bunch of GAS knives you've got there -- is that ALL of them? It's sure more than I have ever seen before, in one place at one time.

Also, in case I haven't mentioned it. Mark, the new format of KNIFE Magazine since the name change is FANTASTIC! It's like you guys found another gear, cause it's really taking off now.

That was a good article. The Great American Story knives are very unusual. They were all made in the USA! Most of the other Boker Limited Edition knives were made in Solingen. I think the GAS knives are undervalued. You can still pick them up for about $20-$30 each if you search.

They also are unusual in that Boker changed ownership in the middle of this series of knives. Some of the boxes are marked WISS/BOKER, while the knives mades later in the series are labeled The COOPER TOOL GROUP along with Boker USA.

I think that was the one, Mark.

That was of course KNIFE Magazine, the December 2017 issue... Bruce Voyles wrote that article on Boker GAS knives. KNIFE is the successor to Knife World, who published the extensive article on Boker's history and tang stamps several years ago... I wrote that article. There's a direct link to our website on the iKC home page.

For that matter, there's an article evaluating two current production Bokers in the January 2018 issue, goes to press this week.
