ADDITIONAL INFO:     I am not by any means an authority on Henckels, but I believe this to be an old knife. It is made before 1960 when Henckels stopped making their own pocket knives and Boker started making them. It is beautiful bone handles and blades are all in very nice and usable condition. This pattern is often called a split back spring whittler. However instead of being split part way this is the most common type of whittler that has the tapered brass center liner. The springs individually operate the secondary blades and together they tension on the primary blade.

This is excellent knife that would make a great user or beautiful display piece.

Full disclosure – I noticed there may be a scratch or a tight pin crack on the pile side rear pin. See the picture showing the secondary blades tang stamps.
