Böker New Old Stock Arnex Brass Elk Motif Pocket Knife Stainless Steel Blades:
$29.95

Arnex Industries Corp manufactured and imported pocket watches and accessories during the 1970's. The company caught-on the fashion craze which led to three-piece suits. Pocket watches, chains, FOBs became must-wear accessories during that time.
Kidde & Company purchased Arnex Industries Corporation effective in 1977. They maintained the product line but changed some manufacturers. The original knife from the catalog came from Solingen Germany. Solingen's business began to fail and the new Arnex team had to find another manufacturer of their pocketknives to meet demand. They found a manufacturer in Taiwan.
In an article from Knives & Tools Magazine entitled Böker 150 years:Böker Manufaktur is made in Solingen, Germany. Böker Plus is made outside of Germany. This means that a large part of the production process is carried out in China, but Böker Plus knives are also made in Italy, Spain and the United States.
If the knife does not have a tree emblem, it's made for third parties and in places outside of Solingen.
Arnex had this model manufactured in Taiwan. It's stainless steel and quite attractive. Importantly, it's new old stock found with other Arnex products when the company relocated to Florida. We found it to compete nicely with the German model. I believe you will too.
Size: 3.25"
Weight: 1.3 oz
Pocket knives have been used as fobs for pocket watches. These are often referred to as watch fob knives
Böker has different brands for different production locations. Böker Manufaktur is made in Solingen, Germany, with high-quality materials and craftsmanship. Böker Plus is made outside of Germany, mostly in China, but also in Italy, Spain and the US.
Böker's knives are mostly made by hand, with a lot of manual labor and attention to detail. From punching out the parts, to grinding the blades, to assembling the handles, to finishing the surfaces, Böker's skilled workers use machines and tools that are sometimes over 100 years old.
Böker's knives are inspected by a team of experts before they leave the factory. They check every aspect of the knife and add a note with their number.
Böker's knives are the result of a combination of tradition and innovation, of old and new machines, of natural and synthetic materials, of local and international markets. Böker's knives are unique and proud products of a company that has been making knives for over 150 years.
Note: The color in the photos should show a brass tint but might not due to the light.
