At one point in life I was a chef, so I love a good knife, but have since moved to online sales. I will probably use this forum in the near future to upgrade to a high quality knife.
I have many questions regarding a "NAPCO 10-Piece Collection Carbon Steel Professional Cutlery Set" I found the other day. I have searched the internet and cannot find any information regarding them at all, as though they never existed.
The little information I have is that they were produced in Taiwan (so produced post-1944 due to the name). The black and white picture on the front cover is two men working at a forge in what appears to be Japanese garb. They were originally sold for $59.95 USD. I would guess they were sold at some point in 1950s, which means $60 in 1950 is the equivalent to $600 USD in 2014 dollars, so they are a high end set for the time.
I figured it would be best to directly ask the knife gurus. Has anyone ever heard of such a brand? Is there a way to find out information and the value?
Any and all help would be appreciated.
