Circa 1954 Ivory Smitty and Toothpick, predating the Faisal sets. What makes this set so unusual is no lugs!!! I don't know if I have seen another like it. Pretty cool. Smitty is a brass back. Both are chromed.

Neat! Did they sharpen after the chrome? I've not seen one in person.

No, the process was intended for display purposes, i.e no rust.

Understand the need to obscure any personal info. What is obscured ?
Knives named to someone? I probably will never run into such a set but why is the obscured info high one blade and low on the other?

simply a reflection on the chromed blades. Not there in the bottom photo. Probably my t-shirt.
