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 have not been on the site for several years but getting back to collecting and I had a question for you - I am on the look out for an old school platts/case jumbo swell center elephant toenail / sunfish. I was shocked to hear of Scott King passing and he was the man when he had his massive collection - I was wondering if you had any knowledge as to who may have one of these available?
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.
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.
