I had the good fortune this last week to win an online auction for a Zwilling J.A. Henckels meat carving set made in Germany.
When I married, we were given a boxed carving set (knife, fork and steel) for a wedding present and used it for many years.
Over time, however, the box disappeared, the knife blade separated from its handle, and all that is left is a steel and fork buried in the bottom of a drawer.
Now I am getting rid of a lot of these things I no longer use, I decided to replace what I wanted with something that had some quality.
I loved this set as there is a gold embossed hunting scene on one side of the knife blade, and the box itself has another scene on the inside of the lid. The handles are apparently made with antelope horn.
I did some research and Zwilling J.A. Henckels is one of the leading knife manufacturers in the world, which made my purchase feel even more special.
I have no idea how old the set is, and the lady I bought it off did not know either, but this will not stop me from the enjoyment of using it.
“A knife is only as good as the one who wields it”
Have a happy day 😊
