Fisher knife

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.

Fisher knife

Post by Eye Brand Man » Wed Nov 10, 2021 11:23 pm

Recently acquired Henckels “Fisher” knife. 6” blade and 10-1/2” overall. Have not been able to find any info at all on this knife not even another picture of one. I’m guessing it’s from the early’70s . Very nicely made intergal construction ( blade, guard, tang all one piece of metal) handles look to be laminated wood. Sheath is very nice as well and looks to be mage from vinyl I guess to be waterproof.
Anybody ever seen another one or have any info? Maybe some has old catalogs with this listed.

Very nice! Reminds me a lot of some Puma models of the era.

Yes it does resemble some Puma’s . One thing I find interesting is there’s an old price sticker on the box for 36.00 which in the early’70’s was quite a bit. I’ve seen an old catalog with advertisements for Puma white hunters in 1971 they were 21.00, so this Henckels was a bit more.

Nice knife.
Makes me think of a divers knife, especially with the "Deep Sea Tested" etching.

Eye Brand Man, Should you ever decide to part with the Fisher knife, I'd greatly appreciate a heads up in a Private Message.

When I saw Fisher knife, I was thinking fillet knife. Definitely not a fillet knife, but built for heavy duty use. Interesting vinyl sheath too. First one I have seen.
