The Certificate which is included with this knife reads “Giesen & Forsthoff Solingen, Germany”, “This firm began in 1920. John Goins book “Encyclopedia of Cutlery Markings” show them as using the TIMOR Trademark and the G & F Trademark. Their main business is scissors and shears. They only made pocket cutlery for the domestic German market and these knives have not been produced since the 1950’s. The blades are hammer forged and the quality is unsurpassed.
