This one looks jeweler done but is actually a factory done etch. Eichhorn and Henckels produced this type. Most of the finish is gone from inside the etch, it's not a mint example of this type. But still they are very difficult to obtain for a collection. Some of our members here have beautiful examples of both types.

Steve,
Can't remember for sure, but I may have posted this Eickhorn a few years ago. Anyway, I guess it fits the subject of this thread.

Denny, thanks for posting that one. I've seen a number of those that resemble that layout. Each one seems to be individually interesting in some way. I've always had an interest in those.

Steve

P.S.: Could you post some closeups of the Henckels you posted earlier? I'd really like to see that. Thanks, Steve

Here is an interestingly marked blade that belongs to a friend. Maker mark? Distributor? Privately engraved?

Hi,
the first one says "du solst nicht töten" witch translates to "you shall not kill" , number 13 of the ten commandments from Exodus.
the second one says "uns geht die sonne nicht unter" witch translates to "we are not under the sun" witch is the name of a Hitlerjugend song book.
I hope this helps smile
Regards, Ted

I'm certainly not an expert but very interested in this subject since I joined this hobby and did amass a great amount of literature until my x trashed it. As it turns out this subject runs off into other parts of our hobby like jewelry, rings etc. from this period and the details of how they are made which is in the literature as well and just about anything thats stamped, engraved or marked..I love marks of any kind really...Just came upon this thread I think.

As we all know and realize It takes a lot of training to be a very proficient engraver, so skilled engravers during this period advertised and looked for employment. I think some, maybe a few jewelers might have or were trained and skilled or not so skilled but most employed/utilized a skilled engraver to do the work. So a master jeweler more than likely is not a master engraver or vise versa. A well known and popular manuscript was used by engravers and jewelers to utilize and show customers the many styles they could choose from. Many of the monogramed engravings shown are directly from this book and thats why we see a lot of different styles and the same popular stylized monograms. And yes engraving machines electro magnetic machines, etching needles, drills, a Burin or Graver which are engraving hand tools, Roulettes of various types, etc etc. were used and or a combination thereof. Best!
