I bought a Magnum knife in the 90s that didn't have the Boker name attached to it at all. Boker and Magnum are a fairly recent pairing as far as I know. As batteur said, Boker Plus is different. Boker Magnum are Chinese Magnum knives with the Boker name stamped on them. Boker plus are Boker knives made in China. There is a significant difference.
