Thanks FRJ, espn77 and Roger.

FRJ: That's an old style shield that Boker didn't use very much. I've seen a few of them over the years, but not a lot. Ricky & Neal's Boker book dates that shield from the late 1800's - 1938 time frame. I always have referred to them as a "tulip" shield because it reminds me of a tulip bloom.

All you guys and everyone else in this post have put up some very nice knives! ::nod::

espn77: As usual, you have posted up a group of mint knives. I particularly like your little pearl swell-center Remington. ::tu::

Roger: ALL are up to your usual mint, etched standards. ::tu::
A pocket knife is still an intimate personal possession of the individual who carries it and consequently deserves the best of materials, finish and workmanship in its production. (Quoted from Boker's 1928 cutlery catalog).

Thanks Barry,that is very interesting.Several years ago I showed that knife to Mark Zelesky and he didn't have a guess on the etch.
