This knife came off a salesman’s sample board taken by Ernst Felix, the former president of Boker, when he left the company. Several of those boards of mint knives were acquired by Smokey Mountain Knife Works in the 1980’s. This knife is from one of those boards. This knife was made in the Boker factory in Germany between c.1869-1944. The knife has an unused and unsharpened carbon steel spear point main blade with a common nail pull. It still has its original factory mirror polish and its original factory edge and just a tiny spider leg on the front face. Stamped on the front tang is H. BOKER & CO (over) SOLINGEN. Stamped on the rear tang is the Boker Tree Brand tree logo for that era. On the other end of the frame is an unused carbon steel double sided fingernail file, or manicure, secondary blade. There’s a standard ridge and valley type file on each face. The top portion of the blade is the fingernail cleaner. Stamped on the front tang is H. BOKER & CO (over) SOLINGEN. Stamped on the rear tang is the Boker Tree Brand tree logo of the era. Both blades have excellent open and close snap. The scales are a beautiful set of very Fiery Genuine Mother-of-Pearl. They are in excellent plus condition with no cracks, splits or missing chips and have the pinks, blues, purples and greens within the pearl when turned in the light. There are three (3) brightly polished brass handle pins in each scale. The liners are brightly polished brass. The knife has a single mirror polished steel back spring which is free of any cracks or breaks and continues to perform the functions it was designed to perform. The stamping on this knife was used by the Boker Germany factory between c.1869-1944. It comes right off a salesman’s sample board from the H Boker Baumwerks offices in Solingen, Germany.
