Well, it appears to be a Henkels 3 blade whittler style pattern number 1935, made in Germany with stag handle covers. Beyond that you’re gonna have to be more specific as to what you want to know - your request is pretty vague. ::shrug::

Super, I knew it was a JAHenckel 3 blade and could read hand forged. I was wondering about the date of manufacture. I didn’t think it was made in 1935 it’s just too new. Is the handle real stag? I kind of inherited it and no absolutely nothing else about it. Any info would be helpful

Actually, I am so very new to collecting I’m not even sure what questions to ask.

Welcome!
As long as you don't ask what size engine it has, ask any question you have about the knife you want to know. ::super_happy::

Common things folks want to know:
Date of manufacture
Maker and maybe who they made it for
Pattern (common name for the type of knife)
Handle material
Steel type
Value
Part of a series

Just a few that may get ya going! :D
Take care and God bless,

Henckels stopped making folding knives in 1960. All Henckels branded folding knives made since then have been made by other manufacturers.
Your knife is not a Henckels made knife. It is a contract knife likely made by Boker. When it was made i don't know, but likely before 2000, and definitely after 1960.

It appears to be real stag on the handle. ::tu:: Terry

If you scroll down there is an entire forum dedicate to the study of Henckel's knives. If you search that forum for information you may get most of your answers. Welcome to AAPK.

Mumbleypeg (Ken) posted just about everything you asked for about the knife. The 1935 he posted was not a year but a pattern number for the knife. Pattern names such as "trapper", "whittler" and "stockman" are pretty generic but each manufacturer applies their own pattern number and this "whittler" has a pattern number of 1935.
