Are Trident knives the same as Wusthof?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello, I have a set of knives that my dad left me. They have the marking"Trident Dreizack Solingen Germany Rostfrei" along with a product code and size. On the handle there is an engraved trident symbol. I have no idea as to the origin of these knives but would really like to know what they are. I have researched Wusthof as they have the same trident logo but don't know whether these are the same brand or not. I have put some pictures below. If anyone can help I would be very grateful. Thanks.

Almost positive Trident = Wusthof Trident = Wusthof.

Thanks for your reply. They seem to be very nice knives. I guess they are quite old.

It has to do with old intellectual property law in continental Europe. The oldest protection was a registered mark, a symbol, and Wüsthof chose a trident (Dreizack in German).

Benuser, they are apparently stainless, do you know what period they are from?

Profile is similar to the pre-war area, stainless isn't that common in Europe before the sixties. This together with the Trident mention makes me think it is from the fifties and meant for the American market.
We had a similar case with early French stainless. Please note the blade length in inches.
