OK, so not technically an antique, not even close but this silver carving set does come into the category of “antique style”. It is a three piece carving set comprising knife, fork and sharpening steel. Made by United Cutlers of Sheffield it is a continuation of that great city’s tradition of high quality cutlery. The silver component is in King’s pattern (hence antique style) and very well executed. The blades are in finest Sheffield stainless steel so this is a lovely quality set. It also comes in its original box with all the additions – tissue and separate bags for each item. The box is in a buff blue with silver lettering.
The Knife is a long meat knife with fine serration and heavy handle. The fork is twin pronged with long tines and the hinged clip to the back and the steel is very high grade barley twist style steel. This set is brand new – it has never been used and came from a jeweller who sadly has now closed. The hallmark is 1998 for United Cutlers (Sheffield) so at a little over 20 years old could (at a push) come into the vintage category. A lovely gift perhaps or something in preparation for Christmas
As mentioned this is a brand new carving set so it is in immaculate condition and comes in all its original packaging. If one were to be very picky there is a slight tear to the outside of the box where some tape has been removed.
