Boker USA is an indirect offshoot of a 17th century tool-making workshop that originated in Germany. The cornerstone of the Boker companies is the factory founded by Heinrich Boeker in Solingen, Germany in 1869. Boker has a very interesting history.
Boker USA no longer makes knives in the U.S. as the majority of Boker manufacturing moved back to the main plant in Solingen. It is there that Boker’s reputation for quality and craftsmanship began, and it is there that the tradition continues today.
