The Lauffer factory in Norway was famous for its innovate, Scandinavian flatware designs. They introduced the Vantage pattern in 1975. It is a substantial weight, satin finished pattern. Towle Silversmiths took over the Lauffer firm and production was moved from Norway to Asia. The Norwegian pieces of this stainless pattern are highly sought after. This flat handled dinner knife is 8 1/4"long and forged from a single piece of stainless. This is part of a large pre-owned set that is in excellent condition with no dings, dents, or disposal damage. It has a nice even patina and would blend nicely with a vintage service currently being used. Price is for one and you may purchase up to the number remaining.
