First of all, let me start by saying this is a work in progress.
We know how difficult it is to determine the age of a Boker knife.
Careful though - many old Solingen made knives also have this shield! The shield pictured is from a NEW BRITAIN blade etched US Boker circa 1968-1970.
It is a member of the regional authority of the Rhineland.Swords from Solingen have turned up in places such as the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms in the British Isles. netdating for ældre Rebild Northern Europe prized the quality of Solingen's manufactured weaponry, and they were traded across the European continent.In the latter part of the 17th century, a group of swordsmiths from Solingen broke their guild oaths by taking their sword-making secrets with them to Shotley Bridge, County Durham in England.Solingen lies southwest of Wuppertal in the Bergisches Land.
As such, there are few pre-war sights in the centre.Solingen's population doubled between the years 18 due to the incorporation of the city Dorp into Solingen in 1889, at which time the population reached 36,000.With that said: GENERALLY speaking, a plain shield with no company logo or name is pre 1960. Originally, shields on knife handles were mostly for decoration. I finally remembered where I saw the bottom, left shield at.In 1929 Ohligs, located in the Prussian Rhine Province, 17 miles (27 km) by rail north of Cologne became part of Solingen.
