The knives are made the traditional way with superior quality hollow handles that are silver plated and blades which are made from world famous Sheffield Steel which are marked with the ELKINGTON & CO LTD CUTLERS & SILVERSMITHS ENGLAND Logo. This is a vintage set of cutlery with the normal signs of use that does have some wear and marks on the blades. It has been in storage for a while so will need a polish before you use it for the first time as I have only cleaned the place setting in the photos.The wooden canteen does have a few marks on the outside but has done a good job looking after its contents. In addition to the items shown in this listing, I do have more sets of cutlery.
