Tools Fit For a U.S. President

When U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant was elected in 1869, Lamson representatives presented a fine 62-piece dinner set to the new leader of our young nation. The ivory and mother of pearl hilted products were so extraordinarily produced that portions of the original set are displayed at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC, a testament to both our timeless craftsmanship and the Lamson Lifetime Guarantee.
