I received the Nov issue of Knife World from MrBlister, but my Sweet Lady was cleaning up and thought it was old newspaper and threw it out. Did I say Sweet? oh yea she was cleaning up the rest of my messes, LOL.
Well I called Knife world and started a subscription and I requested they sent me a copy of Nov which has now arrived.
Im scanning it and posting it on my "Hawke's Boker Notes" page. Some scans are up now and more will follow until I get the whole article there.

thanks Hawke, great web page, the Zalsky article is new info for me
so from what I gather , the VF knives were the less expensive
when they moved to Maplewood in the early 20's they must have stopped using the Newark NJ stamp?
but knowing how allot of manufacturers didn't like to throw anything away, and did not care about exact records, I guess they may have used the Newark stamp in Maplewood for awhile?
here is another rough black Boker I have, think this one is from Maplewood? that factory stayed open till the 60's I think
