There's Just Something About These Old Boker Springers

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

I don't think many realize it, but nearly all the autos by established knife companies are Made in the USA. That's a great thing regardless of the reason, but the real reason behind it is that switchblades are still illegal in interstate commerce -- and importation counts. The big companies aren't willing to risk losing an entire shipment to customs and being in their doghouse -- so they source from US manufacturers. In this case the Kwaiken is being made by Pro-Tech, who makes a wonderful knife. This is going to be a big hit.

Oh yeah, one more thing about the KWAIKEN AUTO:

"MADE IN USA"

In other news. I just picked up this Boker/George Schrade stainless steel fishing knife for my collection. Circa 1956-58. Strange, I seem to be migrating to the cheaper knives lately! But it is a neat piece of history. Now if I can only find that stamped steel "Boy's Knife"!

Nice! Hopefully they will bring the Kwaiken Auto to the BLADE show in ATL!

I've got some other interesting ones in the hopper and am always looking for more. We've had some response to our ads seeking more writers and I hope to find more, it's a constant search for good material!

BTW, I saw the new Boker Kwaiken Auto at SHOT and it's way cool!   :)

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.

Comment by Ricky Ray on January 22, 2018 at 18:47

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.

Comment by Ricky Ray on December 9, 2017 at 20:25

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

Comment by Mark Zalesky on December 4, 2017 at 13:46

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.
