Please read our Terms below for details. PLEASE NOTE: The photos do NOT do justice to the outstanding condition of this set, which is virtually unused in person (we didn't wipe the smudges from them when photographing).
Made in Japan in the 1950's and early 1960's, the heyday of Eames-Era modernist design, this OUTSTANDING boxed set of 6 fully-forged steak knives are found here in complete and excellent condition with original presentation box (pics have some shadows and glare, but knives are excellent--virtually unused). As you can plainly see, they embody the design of vintage modern housewares of the era and are also works of the cutler's art. Their clean and sensual modernist lines are equally matched in the piece's quality.
The knives were lovingly crafted with fully-forged stainless steel blades, polished to a mirror's finish and hafted onto impeccably crafed handles that are rounded, not flat, and all the more beautiful for it--It's a bit hard to see in the pics. I honestly can't tell what they're made from but it's either very dense, black African ebony of the very highest quality or VERY high quality black phenolic resin, like the kind that used to be on dial telephones.
Unlike many knives made in this style, they're nice and large, with each knife measuring a full 9" long with a 3.5" blade, which is serrated. This is an excellent opportunity to evoke the look and feel of an era, the last non-ironic period in design, without having to spend a non-ironic fortune. We absolutely guarantee your satisfaction with these knives.
