Do you have any information on the first knife?

I have one like it and would like to know more about when it was produced.

Here's some info. on your knife. The H. Boker & Co. tang stamp was used over a long span of time. According to Mark Zalesky's Boker article in Knife World, it was used from 1869 - 1944 or 1891(Steel tariff enacted) - 1944 if Germany was stamped anywhere on the knife. I do not have my knife convenient or I would check & see if it has Germany stamped on it. The best I remember, it does not. With that said and in my opinion, your knife was made on the later end of that time frame; probably 1930's - 1940's. Attached are some tang stamps from Mark's Knife World article that you can use for reference. I hope this helps.
