The Giesen & Forsthoff tradition began in 1920 when Paul Giesen and Eugen Forsthoff started producing and manufacturing cutlery tools in Solingen. Their quality products quickly spread around Europe, the United States, and Asia. The Giesen & Forsthoff brand is synonymous with a high standard of craftsmanship. In the 1940's the Giesen family took over the entire operation of the business while maintaining the name.
