no preview available

Description:

White stock cover has Carving Booklet in white print on an orange rectangle background and "a carving guide by Cutco the exclusive lambhandle cutlery" along the right side in orange. There is a drawing in black of a turkey on a platter and a place setting. A carving knife is across the turkey and a carving knife across the dinner plate. The back, in black and orange on white, tells how CUTCO Cutlery was chosen by the Museum of Modern Art for good design. A black circle in an orange square with "Good Design" in white hangs from black and orange strings. Below it says "Research and material supervised and prepared by Margaret Mitchell, Director, Home Economics, Wear-Ever Kitchens." At the bottom is the company name and address. The pamphlet begins with a description of the Lamb Handle, how it came to be and its advantages, followed by the company's guarantee. The "Carving Section" lists 12 steps to carving preparation followed by detailed instructions, with illustrations, on how to carve various cuts of beef, pork, lamb, veal, tongue and fowl. There is an extensive section on the care of CUTCO knives with a separate page for each type of cutting and carving utensils: how they should be used, sharpened and stored. The last pages show gift sets and where to write for service. A goldenrod and black postal card is attached inside the front and back to send for information on becoming a CUTCO distributor: "for men only! (and a few women, too)" to "add spare time cash to your present income."
