  1. Yes, I now understand. I appreciate your time and patience Lazarus. Thank you
  2. When you say quality knives, you mean knives with high carbon blades, don't you? That is, no hollow handled knives would have stainless blades? Thanks
  3. Thanks Lazarus, So to summarize all the above, if I bought this set of Arthur Price International, I would get high carbon steel blade knives that would hold their cutting edge. However, it is likely that they would not hold their edge as well and may develop other problems (pitting, breakage?) when compared to the Sheffield produced blades. Is that a fair summary?
  4. Thank you again Lazarus. This set I'm considering was manufactured between 1999 and 2007 when the Arthur Price International range was discontinued. The set was produced overseas, so I guess the blades would have been manufactured overseas rather than Sheffield blades being sent over for assembly and finishing. Question is are the blades now imported of equivalent quality higher carbon steel and retain the cutting edge? Surely they wouldn't put stainless steel blades into a hollow handle?
  5. Thank you Lazarus. Apart from a general interest as to why the different star markings, I wanted to know the quality of the knife blades in a set of Arthur Price International 18/10 Stainless 50year guarantee cutlery. The knives in the set I am looking at are hollow handled. But are they made from Sheffield high carbon steel that will retain its edge for a lifetime? I think that's what you are saying, but want to be sure. I am unable to inspect the set personally for the same reason I cannot pop down to Sheffield Scene - I'm in Australia! I am very grateful for your help.
  6. I have been looking for a used set of stainless cutlery in Kings pattern. In my searching I have noticed Arthur Price hollow handled knives have different markings and wonder if someone can enlighten me? I have seen 5 stars, 3 stars, 2 stars and another marked Arthur Price International with 0 stars. Do these markings signify different grades of quality in the blades or handles? Or do they use the same quality Sheffield steel blades in all their hollow handled knives?
