Hen & Rooster Cutlery has been producing fine pocket knives since the 1860's. These Hen & Rooster knives have been among the best knives made in the world. Hen and Rooster knives were made at the C.Bertram factory up until the early 1980's and these older Hen & Rooster knives are highly sought after. Klaas made Hen & Rooster for Frost Cutlery starting in the 1980's and most recently Boker and Olbertz have made Hen & Rooster for import into the United States. In the last year or so there have been some Hen & Rooster examples with questionable tang stamping that are not specifically tang stamp "Solingen Germany". If we are not comfortable that prospective Hen & Rooster knives are made in Germany (wholly) - we will not carry them.
