I was in need of some small knifes for cheese, fruit and such. Great if you have an outdoors picnic with family or friends. Everyone has their own knife :) Being the bakelite junky that I am I found two sets of bakelite fruit knifes by Solingen Germany at an onlineauction. Unfortunately without their stands but I would not use those anyway so it doesn't matter. I love them. Great conversation topic as well since people notice them straight away. Art deco candy :)
Greatful for more information on when they were made. Different sellers say 1930's - 1950's on similar knifes? From what I find online Solingen steel, used in making knives, scissors, razors, and surgical instruments, is world famous for its excellence and Solingen has been known for its fine blades since the Middle Age but I can't find any information on what firm made these knifes and when. The yellow set has a more distinct mark and the word "Salto". See photo. Thanks!
