J.A. Henckels operated one of the largest factories in Solingen and also out sourced among the huge numbers of independent craftspeople in Solingen (many of the workers at the Solingen factory were also independent workers who rented their space). Henckels made pocketknives in Solingen until the 1960’s and afterwards contracted out, this knife looks like their higher quality house made knives.
Blades have barely been used and they have an excellent mechanism.
Most vintage pocket knives come unsharpened unless specified or requested
