This complete set of 6 BEAUTIFUL vintage steak knives were made by Queen Cutlery Co. And are found here in nice condition, found complete with their original wooden storage/prsentation case.The box has wear from decades of doing its job of protecting its contents. Each knife is made with beautiful grooved winterbottom bone handles pinned over a full tang and measures a luxurious 9-1/8 long with a blade length of 4.5. The blades are stainless steel, tang-stamped with the crown over the Q logo, as you can see, indicating they're an older set, dating probably to the 1950's Bolsters and pommels are solid pewter and give the knives excellent heft in the hand--they just FEEL like quality and using them bears it out; they provide a clean, fast cut on a single stroke, owing to their fine factory edge. Despite their considerable collector value, it'd be a shame not to use them regularly--or at the very least, for special occasions.
As good as any steak knives have a right to be, this is the ultimate set for serving with the ultimate steaks or on any occasion when you're pulling out all the stops. There is virtually NOTHING like this in the modern market today and to find them here in such nice shape. An heirloom quality set that will thrill user and collector alike!
