This is a stainless steel and stag antler carving set made by Ernst Knecht and CO of Solingen, Germany in the 1960 time period when these were imported to the Us from Germany. The word Rostfrei is the German word for rust-free technically translated, but refers to stainless steel.

The set has a value of $ 80 to $100 for the set.
