    Boker meat cleaver

    I saw one and it looked interesting but before I buy yet another (seemingly) antique meat cleaver I wonder if anybody knows anythign about this brand. How would one tell the age iof it? Is the company the ancestor of the current Boker knife company for example??

    TIA

    There was once a Boker cutlery company in the U.S too. I think they split off the German company around WW-1 for obvious reasons. Made pocket knives under the "Valley Forge" brand.

    I remember Boker as one of first to the hunting knife market with ceramic blades. People that didn't hunt may have liked them. They now enjoy a good reputation for inexpensive camp/hunting knives with aus-8 blades. Have not heard of them in the kitchen knife world.
