THE KNIVES AFTER SCHOOL FROM 1940 TO 1956

THE GREEN LINE KNIVES WERE NAME AFTER THE PLANT MANAGE MR. GREEN

The knife came from Foster Bros. Green Line of cutlery and as such, dates to the period 1921--1950's. Green Line knives were expensive then--not something made for the meatpacking industry, as most Foster Brothers pieces were--but were made to cater to a very upscale user, say a professional chef or a wealthy homeowner. It retains its original sticker, which reads, "Foster Bros., Forge Toughened, A Chatillon Product," with the anvil logo. Blade reads, "Foster Bros., Forge Toughened, Made in U.S.A."
