Thank you for sharing the catalog pages ::tu:: Some very nice knives. Also, the stockman with a combination screwdriver/caplifter is an unusual pattern !

I see the pocket knives are in the $3 to $9 range. I wonder what the prices were in 1940 for a similar pattern Remington or Schrade Cut. Co.

Thanks. The Remingtons range from $0.75 (for a very nice 2 blade Regular jack to $3.75 with most being about $1. The Henckels were about 3x as expensive as the Remingtons.
I bet in the 1940's very few Henckels were sold in USA due to very high price and not wanting to trade with a country you are at war with.
