Looky what I just fished out of the bay!
Got this pretty cheap. I am anxious to see it in person. It is about 3 1/2" wide.

The Remschied Boker family branch exported tools and Boker knives around the world. The Henry Boker name was mostly known for tools, but they were a well known knife label in Australia. This plaque's most recent home was Mexico.

Now, what the heck am I gonna do with it? ::shrug:: hmmmm.

Now you just have to find a gigantic knife to put it on.

Seems like usually the knife is missing the shield. In this case the shield is missing the knife.

GREAT catch Blue!! ::tu:: That would look really nice on some type of old wooden chest or knife box of some sort. Congrats.

That's a great idea! I have an old gerstner tool box laying around here somewhere - might make a nice knife box... :mrgreen:
