This post will be about vintage Henckel's and history and a couple of unique items.

1731: Peter Henckels registers the TWIN trademark with Solingens Cutler’s Guild.

1818: Johann Abraham Henckels opens the Company’s first branch office in Berlin.

1851: The Company exhibits its products at the World exhibition in London where it achieves international recognition and is awarded a medal.

There's a great scene in Frtiz Lang's "M" where Peter Lorre is looking in a shop window at a full Henckel's display. Can't find in on the net though.
