Henckles Barlow

J.A. Henckels is a Solingen, Germany based knife manufacturer that dates back to 1731. The company's Zwilling (twin) logo is known to be one of the oldest trademarks in the world. Throughout the company's history, it has made some of the world's finest pocket knives, kitchen knives, scissors & flatwear. In 1960 Henckels ceased their pocket knife production and started having other companies make knives for them on contract. Boker has been one of the main producers of more recent Henckels products.

Henckles Barlow

Hello All,
I picked up this Henckles Barlow at an artifact show over the weekend. It is in really good shape. The guy I got it from always takes really good care of everything he has so I knew he took good care of this knife.
Maybe you Henckles experts can tell me more about this one.The blade etching is all still there (May not be able to see it in my poor pics...)

Very good knife. 'Newer' meaning made after 1960 and most likely by Boker. Likely 1980's - 1990's ? a Boker Germany collector might be able to date more accurately.
