J.A. Henckels is a Solingen, Germany based knife manufacturer that dates back to 1731. The company's Zwilling (twin) logo is known to be one of the oldest trademarks in the world. Throughout the company's history, it has made some of the world's finest pocket knives, kitchen knives, scissors & flatwear. In 1960 Henckels ceased their pocket knife production and started having other companies make knives for them on contract. Boker has been one of the main producers of more recent Henckels products.

The pattern is called "Senator" and this one has 3 springs and 5 blades. Henckels was a top of the line manufacturer of folding knives until 1960. The extensive file work on blade spines and springs show that this was one of their most expensive Senators, which was already an expensive pattern,
Too bad one side is missing much of the pearl. If the pearl was all there this knife might fetch $100 at auction (ebay). But with pearl missing on one side the value goes way down.
Hard to say age. 1920's would be a good guess.
