    Yours appears to be 1924-1935. You can date them by the branches on the tree.

    Bokers are usually very nice to shave with. If you intend to use this one, keep in mind it seems to have a lot of hone wear and won't be the easiest to hone and get shave ready again.

    I wasn't actually planning on it, it was more me searching info for my Grandfather. He got this as a gift from his Son in Law.

    He must have liked it, it is well used. Boker's are very highly thought of among users

    If you go to the advanced search in the upper right corner type in Boker you will find some information. Good luck.

    I have some Boker pocket knives, the oldest an 1900 model according to the chart, given to me by great Great Grandfather over 50 years ago, model is an stockman.

    Still looking for a big ol' Boker to shave with, eh, some day.
