Vintage Side Plate or Butter Knives Five Boxed Edwin Blyde and Co.

Product description

Vintage Side Plate or Butter Knives Five Boxed

A lovely set of the five remaining side or butter knives in their original case. They were manufactured by the Sheffield master cutlers Edwin Blyde and Co. Marked as Firth Stainless which may date them to the 1920’s. A rust free steel was developed by Harry Brearley of Firth Brown but it was not until 1924 that his successor refined the process and patented it under the name Stainless Steel.

Size
Length 7 inches / 18 cm.
Case 7.5 x 6 x 1 inches 19 x 15 x 2.5 cm.
The knives are in excellent condition with only light signs of use and retain their bright mirror finish. The handles are imitation ivory or Ivorine which was first used in the 1860’s. The spur etched on the blades has been the Blyde trade mark for 130 years since a family member became a dashing cavalry man.

A beautifully made, balanced and finished set of quality side knives having a fine flexing blade and a slim handle, a pleasure to hold and use.
