The Shield Tells a Story - More on Estimating the Age of Boker Knives

First of all, let me start by saying this is a work in progress. We know how difficult it is to determine the age of a Boker knife. Tang stamps, steel, bolster and liner materials, blade etches, and scale materials all tell a part of the story. Another method is by looking at the shields. It is tricky, because one needs to be certain that the shield is original to the knife. For the sake of argument, let's say that you can be sure ...

So You Wanna Know About That Old Boker Knife You Just Scored At The Flea Market?

I feel your pain.

Unique Open/Lock

That's the name of our new group. If you enjoy innovative design, we hope you will join. For years both knife makers and the manufacturers have come up with alternative ways to open the knife and lock the blade. There are probably several hundred differently constructed folders out there now-- and more will surely to come.  Hopefully we can share pictures of our unique…

Introducing iKC's Member Spotlight hosted by Luca Vignelli

iKnifeCollector stands out prominently among all web-based knife sites.

From our community's early days it was apparent iKC was unique- unlike anything online knife related. It was noticeably more personal and to some, because all they knew was the posting board knife forum format, iKC was too personal. Those members elected not to become a part of our community at…

iKC Name Game #2

Recently we started the iKC Name Game to see who can be the first to identify the person I have selected and added to our community.

 

The Name Game is all about knife personalities and historical cutlery characters.

 

To play the game you must first- find the picture of the individual and then you must come back to this blog and put their name. The first to correctly ID this person wins! It's that simple.

 

Don't cheat :) You either know it or you…

To all iKC and NKCA Members- My decision to serve on the NKCA Board of Directors

Today I was approached to fulfill a vacancy on the board of directors for the National Knife Collectors Association for the balance of the term which runs through the end of 2011.  I agreed to allow my name to be submitted to other board members for confirmation.

 

I agreed to be considered for the NKCA board for several reasons:

  • I care about our hobby and about the NKCA.
  • I have a passion to help spread the word about how much fun our hobby is. In the…
