Vintage sets often did not include any knives at all. Cutlery sets were often given as wedding gifts. To have knives included, met with superstition. Giving the gift of knives, one thought that it would sever the bond between the married couple. That is why you often find sets of boxed knives separately in antique stores. If you wish to complement this set with a set of boxed knives, please check my shop, as I have such a box available right now.
