Item Description

SOLINGEN flatware and service set for 12

For homemakers, when it comes to fine kitchen flatware, such as forks, knives and spoons, Solingen flatware is high up on the desirability scale. Named for the city that originally was the home of German sword making, Solingen itself isn't a company name. Rather, it's the title given to any flatware coming out of a number of manufacturers located within the city. In the 21st century, the basis of fine Solingen flatware is its high quality stainless steel.

Solingen-stamped steel flatware comprising knives, forks and spoons of all sizes, has been around since 1672. Solingen-specific steel making processes also have a very long history. Local 16th century craftsmen in Solingen perfected hand-forging processes that made their cutlery known throughout Europe. Since then, Solingen flatware has become more appreciated than ever. Originally made from standard steel that was susceptible to corrosion, its metal composition was finally stabilized around 1915, when stainless steel was first widely made.
