A very fine 3 pc. carving set made of fine stainless chrome steel from Solingen , Germany. It has a steel vine pattern on both sides of the handles inlaid in possibly white Bakelite. The knife reads as follows:
for ever Durex de Lux
Stainless Chrome Steel - Hand Forged
Together the 3 pcs. weighs 1 lb. 4 oz. The knife measures 13 1/3", the fork 10 1/2", the sharpener 13 1/4". The box is original and is in excellent condition and is covered with a faux alligator pattern.
In the photo the knife shows a water stain, but I was able to wipe it out.
The look is as new except that it appears someone tried to sharpen the knife as there are some very fine scratches on it. It is also very sharp. It does not appear that any of the pieces have been used other than those fine scratches from the sharpener. All in all a very fine German carving set.
