The knives I am currently listing came out of my collection which I am starting to liquidate. There are some very nice knives and I will describe them carefully. If you need more info on any listing, please email me with questions or for additional photos.

CONDITION : Never carried, used or sharpened.
DAMAGE : None
AGE : 1890 to 1971. Since the etch is FIRTH STAINLESS, and since there is no OIL THE JOINTS stamp, I believe the knife dates to somtime after 1920 when stainless came into common use, and prior to 1930.
