bigdaddys8ball: Thank you. It has taken me quite a few years to find the knives I have. You can use the link below and see a bunch of my knives, though I don't have all of them photographed. I'm glad you liked them.

Thanks for the extra pictures of it ::tu::

I have several of these type knives almost all of them German made.

This is the first Boker I have seen, I like it when they have a shield, and some brands put a shield on both sides of the handle! ::uc:: :D

I first posted this one in vintage pearl knives, but thought it belonged here as well. It is either circa. 1848 - 1869 per Goins or 1860 - 1865 per Mark Zalesky's Boker article in Knife World. Either time frame pre-dates Boker putting tree stamps on their knives.
