I believe these have silver handles and that they are French. Marked with a tiny hallmark and Beard with a graph over the "e". I prefer to leave older items as is but did a small polish on the name and it appears that they are silver with stainless blades? Nice weight which I love in cutlery. Length 8 1/4 inches.
