Large Set Carbon Steel Dinner Knives
A very good set of early twentieth century carbon steel blade flatware. Each blade thread is pinned through the handle and is marked "Fine steel Marrison Fisher & Co Sheffield". Carbon steel provides the best cutting edge, and the blades can also be sharpened.
The set consists of:
12 Dinner knives Length 27cm
8 Side Knives Length 22.5cm
A plate of good food is lost without a good knife and fork. Well-proportioned, well-balanced and beautifully designed flatware is a joy to use and is the making of a good meal. Our vintage ‘bone-handled’ knives are both good-looking and functional, and their renewed popularity make them a stylish addition on today’s table. This set of knives have ivorine handles fashioned from xylonite, and blades made from carbon steel, and was manufactured from the end of the nineteenth century through to the 1920s in Sheffield England, which was then the heart of the world’s cutlery industry.
