E.C. Simmons Keen Kutter No.12 Flatware Set w/Oak Box
- Source: eBay
is a set of Keen Kutter flatware with its original oak box. Box measures 5 1/2 x 10 x 1 3/4. Brass hinges and latch. Green paper label reads:E.C. Simmons Keen Kutter Warranted No. 12 Simmons Hardware Co. Guarantee The quality of these knives equal to any knives made, to be fully hand burnished and that if the silver is stripped from one dozen and tested by weight it will prove to be 12 DWTS. Finish on the box is lightly worn on the top. The paper label and cloth lining has stains. Last t is a 3inch crack at the hinge. Set contains 6 silverplated knives and forks. Knives measure 9 3/8 inches long with a 7/8inch wide blade. Blades are marked E.C. Simmons Keen Kutter Warranted Triple Plate. Forks are 7 3/4 inches long. Marked Keen Kutter on the back of the handles. Knives have some light corrosion on the edge of the blades with the plating bubbling in some tiny spots. Would need some work to make them useable. One fork has a bent up prong as shown in the photos. Both knives and forks have some tarnishing. I have a Keen Kutter glass oil bottle listed as well. A nice addition to a Keen Kutter collection.
