Giesen & Forsthoff

 

History of Solingen.

Solingen craftsmen made swords and daggers in the Middle Ages and are now better known for knives, razors and cutlery. There is evidence that the Cutlery industry existed from the beginning of the 14th Century. According to tradition, workers from Damascus, the ancient home of fine blade weapons, settled there about the middle of the twelfth century.

Known as the "City of Blades" Solingen is also a city of rivers, providing early hydro-powered factory tooling to achieve exceptional levels of uniformity and quantity unmatched in world of cutlery. Only blades forged from Steel in Solingen could bare the SOLINGEN name.

The most important producing centres in England and Germany were Sheffield and Solingen respectively. The historic centres of French production are Thiers, Nogent and Chatellerault. In the United States the cutlery industry was centred largely in New England and New York where English and German immigrant cutlers first began production.
