Just picked these up. They polished up really nicely. Does anyone have any information. More specifically, the year, type of knife (what they were used for), how much of the knife is actually silver? Much help appreciated.

    BHock,
    ROB is surely correct. Please mark this as "solved".
    Thanks!

    After my sterling silverware was stolen, I went for MOP flatware pieces. The oldest did not have stainless steel blades and I found that they rusted and eventually their edges became corroded, making the knives useless.
    But I was lucky. I found MOP serrated stainless steel knives, made in Sheffield by B. Thomas & Co., and sold by Georg Jensen!

    AR8Jason thank you. As far as I can tell there are no sterling silver marks. This would mean it is all silver plated correct? The knife blades are very very thin, and I will try the metal detector later tonight. Thanks again for the clarification.

    Thanks again...I will try the metal detector out for kicks later. Have a great day.

    I have a Bounty Hunter Tracker IV. I am a beginner, just started this summer. It does have the tone discriminate feature though, which I am still learning to use.

    Awesome, do you mind if I ask what brand/model you use or recommend (for when I get a little more experienced)?

    I wish I had a good place to search, I am still doing some research of old maps and all, but nothing great yet. Great, thanks so much, best of luck searching this season, and take care!
