This is a Vintage Near Mint Equal End Pen Folding Pocket Knife with a corkscrew. This knife is one of many I’m selling that came directly off a Salesman’s Sample Board that was in the H Boker factory in Solingen, Germany which was taken by Ernst Felix, the former president of Boker, when he left the company.
