From one of the finest cutlery companies the legendary cutlery city of Solingen, Germany has ever known, this beautiful stag-handled set of cutlery is among the very finest of its kind ever made. Though it was made in the 1950's this set is found here in absolutely pristine, brand new condition.
Its storage/presentation box has some scuffs from doing its job of protecting its contents but the set inside is UNBELIEVABLY well preserved. This set includes 6 steak knives of FAR finer quality, detail and craftsmanship AND it includes a superb yatagan-style carving/slicing knife with matching forged fork. All pieces were made by Anton Wingen in their outstanding "Black Forest" line of cutlery and each piece is of the very finest quality from among the many permutations of that line. Each piece was made with a fully hand-forged stainless steel blade with integral blade/bolster/tang construction with stag handle scales riveted atop. Wingen's Black Forest cutlery is prized world-wide for its beautiful carved stag handles and for the beautifully etched blades, and this is set exemplifies why that is.
Each outstanding knife was made with a fully-forged yatagan-style blade that is ready to serve a useful lifetime slicing your favorite meats, poultry, fish, tomatoes or whatever else you put in its way. As you can see in the photos, they're nothing less than works of the cutler's art and each was then etched ornately and expertly.The matching fork is another magnificent example of how much craftsmanship and detail has been lost in cutlery in the modern market. The carving knife is a rare piece in that it comes in a smaller-than-average size with a 6.25" stainless steel blade (it's 11" overall)--beautifully balanced in your hand, with an incredibly comfortable and ergonomically correct grip. Without doubt, this is one of the finest slicing knives you'll ever use--lightweight, balanced and as beautiful to look at as it is to use. The fork is strong enough to spear an ox, balanced in your hand and with the knife will make a stunning impression when its time to carve poultry, fowl or fish. And as beautiful as it is for use as a serving piece it's equally tough for use in the kitchen--a boon to hostess and chef alike.
Like the carving knife each of the 6 steak knives in this set was crafted with a fully hand-forged and integral blade/bolster/tang construction with stag handle scales riveted atop. Each blade was etched with a different German castle/city and its crest is etched on each blade.
Each piece was made with a fully-forged yatagan-style blade that is ready to serve a useful lifetime effortlessly slicing through your favorite meats of every kind: steak, poultry, fish or whatever else you put in its way. As you can see in the photos, they're nothing less than a work of the cutler's art and each is in brand new condition. Each knife comes with a stainless steel 4-5/8" blade (9" overall)--beautifully balanced in your hand, with an incredibly comfortable and ergonomically correct grip.Best of all, each of these pieces predate the industry's widespread conversion to using recycled steel stock and were forged from virgin steel instead. Whether you are the consummate carnivore or merely shopping for one's perfect gift, you'll instantly come to love these knives as heirlooms, and something you'll rightly be proud to pass along to your heirs.
