Sorry I cant help much but...
Rostfrei and Inox are referring to the fact that they are rust free or stainless. They do not tell you what brand they are...
At least you know they are stainless...
The most useless thing ever is a dull knife.

Rostfrei and Inox are European markings meaning stainless. Rostfrei is German and translates literally to “rust free”. Inox is short for “inoxidible”.

If that is the only markings on them I’d guess they were probably made in Italy, or Spain. Most quality knives made in Germany or elsewhere have a manufacturer’s name and country stamped on them.

They all look like they were made in Italy to me, don't appear to be copy's.

For sure, all modern Italian knives posted here and made for export, common to see the flat ground/plain blade going to Europe.

All appear to be modern Italian knives.
The large one was made by Falcon Knives (Angelo Campolin, Sr.) but I'm not sure it hasn't been rehandled.
