    Yes ive learned that SS cutlery was never engraved..
    Just stamped into the metal. Plus there were only 5 or so makers of SS cutlery

    I know that I don't feel good about how thin the runes look. These "SS Reich" flatware pieces are highly controversial. I would feel better with the green glazed ceramic pieces. The flatware always gathers a storm of doubt. I, personally, don't remember ever seeing any of these before the early 1970's.

    thanks for you input! but ive seen SS reich items stamped into lets say RONEUSIL made cutlery....with the exact stamping ( SS reich stamp on the base of the fork or spoon) into the metal and its all over the world? if it were a fake....would the stamping be a little off? maybe with the font? or positioning of the stamp on the fork or spoon etc etc?
    heres an example

    I do not care for these items. The engraving makes no sense just saying "Reich." I agree with Wagriff that these are a more recent phenomena. I also do not place a lot of creedance in opinions from other forums where the collector knowledge and experience is not what we have here.

    Consider...if a Single faker went about and rounded up, say, several hundred older period pieces of flatware-which would be no problem at all, buying up maybe a case or 2 of new old stock inventory flatware- and stamped them all with his stamp, of course, they would all be the same. And, after steadily selling them off to various dealers and collectors, in just a few years time, they would, quite naturally, be found throughout the collecting world.

    If I could ever see a period brochure advertisement or sales book with such for Sale, I would change my mind to believe in them, but after a half a century of collecting and considering some of the enormous archives that other collectors have gathered together from the countless firms and manufacturers in TR era Germany, I have yet to read one, and so I will have to remain in the negative side of the fence until then. Probably not what you wanted to hear, but without even the slightest bit of proof that these pieces existed in the era, what else can be expected?
