Freshly sharpened and cleaned Sword & Shield brand slicer.
Old style 10" slicer from the 1950's-70's. Ground by hand after drop forging. This knife was made at a time that there were many brands drawing off the large pool of talented independent smiths and grinders in Solingen, Germany. A great example of the high quality work that was the norm for Solingen culinary knives when handwork was the norm.
