hey s-k, neat little knife. on pg 169 of "the standaed knife collectors guide". fourth edition is a chart of boker tree stamps. yous appears to be from 1900-1924. is tree brand still visable? in the 1924-1935 stamp the words "tree
brand" are split by thr tree trunk. in the 1900-1924 stamp the words "tree brand" are in a curve under the tree. this is from a book so.......i hope it helps with your id.
i have never owned a horn handled knife. do they feel like smooth bone.

Hi Johnnie, thanks for the reply. There is no 'tree brand' stamped on any of the tangs. It does feel like very smooth bone. It is not porous like bone.
