Here is a good looking folder I think I am giving away at 75.00.
The handles are very highly polished with a wildlife scen on both sides.

Maybe someone who recalls it can post the info?

In the Bernard Levine forum (http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=117420)
it turns out he himself put this knife set together for the Franklin Mint.
So the answer is Boker. Anybody have the referenced book and able to shed further light? Much appreciated.
quoting:
Part of the Franklin Mint's first knife series. I put this 12 knife project together for them -- introduced them to Boker, lined up the artists, chose the animals, and also the knife patterns. See my article "Making a Market in Mint Knives" in Knives Digest 1 for background and history. Book sold at
