The older knives, cleavers and razors I have are marked Twin Works and the newer ones are marked Zwillingswerk. I was wondering why the difference. Could it be that it is due to the US importer of that time? How are they marked in Germany?
An English couple have a child. After the birth, medical tests reveal that the child is normal, apart from the fact that it is German. This, however, should not be a problem. There is nothing to worry about. As the child grows older, it dresses in lederhosen and has a pudding bowl haircut, but all its basic functions develop normally. It can walk, eat, sleep, read and so on, but for some reason the German child never speaks. The concerned parents take it to the doctor, who reassures them that as the German child is perfectly developed in all other areas, there is nothing to worry about and that he is sure the speech faculty will eventually blossom. Years pass. The German child enters its teens, and still it is not speaking, though in all other respects it is fully functional. The German child's mother is especially distressed by this, but attempts to conceal her sadness. One day she makes the German child, who is now 17 years old and still silent, a bowl of tomato soup, and takes it through to him in the parlour where he is listening to a wind-up gramophone record player. Soon, the German child appears in the kitchen and suddenly declares, "Mother. This soup is a little tepid." The German child's mother is astonished. "All these years," she exclaims, "we assumed you could not speak. And yet all along it appears you could. Why? Why did you never say anything before?" "Because, mother," answers the German child, "up until now, everything has been satisfactory."
The German's do have a sense of humour. Similar to the story above...it's our fault that we fail to recognise it.
I happen to think his posts are both hilarious and unnervingly accurate.
It takes a man of intelligence to pull them off simultaneously.
The blades are marked Twin Works. I just typed Werk. I think it is the US importers choice as the razor coffins are marked New York and Solingen. Eskimos do not use ice now they have freezers and microwaves.
