Solingen Cutlery (Germany)

Post  ILBBQS.com on Fri Jun 20, 2008 3:49 pm

Just found a nice big knife for sale that is made by "Solingen Cutlery - Solingen Germany". I've never heard of this brand, does this company make decent knives?

Thanks for your help!

Beware !


Solingen ( the city) is germanys knife forging capital and usually stands for very high quality knifes.
Knifes from Solingen are usually marked "Made in Solingen", wich is a trademark.
Zwilling, Wüsthof and Henkels knifes are produced there,

There is no actual "Solingen" or "Solingen Cutlery" brand, though, but
theres a lot of cheapo knockoffs of german knifes with fake brands like "Solingen" or "Solingen Quality".

Those are marked with a very high price but are offered for a way lower price to make you think its a bargain.
They are sold single or as a set in a suitcase wich makes a good first impression but believe me, the best thing out of those
sets is usually the suitcase.

Heres a pic of one of those sets :



They come in different varietys.

Make sure you buy the knife at a dealer you can trust.

Thanks DM! I have several Wüsthof knives, but had never seen the Solingen Cutlery brand. Here's the link for the knife... http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=230261953528
