Thank you for your replies. Sorry about the delay.
I have been collecting pre-1960 J.A. Henckels items for about twenty-five years. I have one hundred twenty folding and fixed blade knives in total, plus some other J. A. Henckels items; julep cups, can openers, ash trays, schnapps cups, sharpeners, printers blocks, razors, office desk items, scissors, Zeppelin souvenirs, books, catalogs and ephemera consisting of original correspondences and drawings between Emil Iwersen in the New York Graef & Schmidt store and the J. A. Henckels Solingen office up until November 1944.
I am still actively collecting and always interested in any items connected with this brand prior to 1960.
I will post some more items as I get them photographed. German to English letter translations welcome. Please share any items you may have.
