Nice Stag on nice knives Will Power👍

Another Puma Pt- Luso 😊
Nice Barlow Gus - real nice!
Blake - man some of the Horn used is great isnt it! That one looks real nice.

Bastler - I’m not too sure why that gets to you? Boker supply knives all over the World - having German etches would limit sales to a massive degree when most of the buying population of the World would be English speaking or understand English language as a second language.
Also check out the Makers Mark Podcast as it has Ricky Ray and Neal Punchard in there as well speaking about their amazing Boker Book.

The story of the Boker Tree and the Tree Brand is quite amazing - the Boker Book sheds a amazing amount of History into the subject of the Boker Family and how they went to America, Canada then Mexico etc. 😊 👍

I totally agree with your assessment on the Germans etching of English wording on their products. It's all about using good business smarts.
In a way, it can be compared to what the Sheffield Cutleries did when making their Bowies during the 1800's heyday of those knives. I mean, yes, the wording etched onto the blades were in their own English language, but the motto's were obviously to cater to their biggest customers, (the Americans). Most of those knives were to wind up in the hands of a nation that had literally gone to war against them to achieve their independence. But, that certainly did not stop the Sheffield, England cutleries from pandering to the Americans in order to sell their wares to them. Again, it was very smart marketing... How smart was it?... Well, the Sheffield made Bowies wound up being the majority of Bowie type knives sold in the United States during their heyday 👍😊👍

That’s a very nice bulldog Brand Stag Barlow Pt- Luso!! I really missed the Boat on those - sold so many good knives early in the piece, but I can’t have every knife I like!!!

Willpower- that’s a smashing Weidmannsheil.

Absolutely Pk Jimmy - even better markings were the typographic markings of political figures and statements on the very early Bowie’s.
Bernard Levine did a article in Knife World Magazine about my friends Bowie knife ( page 10 March 2012) - that was a superb example of this. 👍

Nice Buffalo Horn there Pt-Luso! :thumbsup:

I'm thinking so baxtrom !

Here is a Herder that is quite the big Knife and in fantastic Condition- although speckled Patina on the Blade, everything else is in very nice condition! often the Hair of these starts to malt and let go- this one is very intact, finished in Nickle Silver and also a Butt Plate as well. One of the Bigger ones I have seen!

These three are in absolutely beautiful Condition, all but the 10 inch are factory finished, the 10 inch looks to have had slight cleaning some stage of its life.
15 Inch, 13 Inch and the very rare 10 inch.
The 15 inch has the one piece Stag Handle as does the 10 inch, the 13 inch has the two pice-4 pinned Handle- all sporting the same Washer treatment.
