    Stainless steel deluxe knives that I have been hoarding for a few years. I suppose it's the packaging which gives them appeal. The knives are mint and boxed. Every once and a while I can get some boxed pieces from the markets. Recently here I've noticed that people are returning to these older style knives with bone or ivorine or bakelite handles. I've always likes these squared-off handles and I really like the shape of the blades as well. My grandmother Maudie O'Reilly used them.
    Not these ones though!
    Love the packaging too!
    Six fit snugly head to tail like sextuplets in an Edwardian cardboard cradle!
    They were made by Viner & Hall of Sheffield in England.

      Hi, wonderful find. These are tea knives, aren't they? I have some Sheffield tea knives like this, and I love them. They are the only knives I have that will permit me to harvest the thinnest slice of cool butter from the butter dish and spread it on a tender buttermilk biscuit (not cookie) evenly without tearing or destroying the biscuit. Very thin blades that cut very well. I always reach for these knives when I've baked biscuits. By the way, I foolishly placed my ivorine-handled knives in the dishwasher, and they looked quite different when I removed them afterwards. (Not that you would ever do anything so foolish as that!) It is good to hear that you have fond memories of your Grandmother O'Reilly using like knives. miKKo

      Many thanks for those kind words, miKKo. "Tea knives" is the approprite term and thanks for those sentient words about dear old Maude.
