Please read our Terms below for details. PLEASE NOTE: We take our photos in natural light outdoors and as a result there are sometimes reflections or shadows or glare shown in the blades.
In person none of these exist; we will say so in the description if it may be otherwise. Without a doubt, this is one of finest examples of Black Forest-style stag-handled cutlery you'll ever come across--found here in very good condition, having been used very little, though the box is a bit rough from doing its job of protecting the cutlery inside.Magnificently crafted in Germany by Anton Wingen, this outstanding set consists of 6 large and ornate steak knives and 6 large matching forks, each fitted with beautiful stag antler handles--just beautifully wrought examples of the cutler's art. Each knife measures a generous 9-1/8" long with a 4.75" blade. Blades are fully hand-forged with integral bolsters and full tangs, then hollow-ground and straight edged to GLIDE through meat as you cut it. Each blade was polished to a mirror's finish then superbly etched with a pastoral scene of a stag grazing through the forest while game-birds fly and graze nearby.
In addition to the etching, the scene is highlighted with green and gold to accentuate the flora and fauna--BEAUTIFUL! In my opinion, the real treasure in the set, though, is to be found in the forks, which are also above average in length at 8 long. It's almost impossible nowadays to find forks with a truly forged (rather than stamped) shaft and with fine, sharp tines, as these have.
Not only are the forks forged and sharp, but you'll want to use them, too, since they pierce foods on the first try and keep them pierced in a way that modern forks seem never to be ablle to do. Because producing one that way can only be achieved by hand, ladies and gentlemen, and there's nothing modern manufacturers despise more than labor--especially skilled labor. A nice addition to any collection or the perfect cutlery to take along to your cabin or on your next picnic, tailgate or hunting expedition.
