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
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
“A knife is only as good as the one who wields it”
Have a happy day 😊
