Anyone know approx. how old these might be? Don't remember ever seeing them for sale.

Is there any indication where they were made on them?  Is that wood on the handles or something else?

The ones I have were in the 1974 catalog & were made in Japan.  See http://weberkettleclub.com/forums/weber-kettles-accessories/does-anyone-recognize-rough-age-of-these-weber-utensils-(made-in-japan)/msg368919/#msg368919

I'm guessing if they are made in Taiwan, they would be later.  If they were made in China, even later still.

Whenever they are from, they look cool.

Thanks PotsieWeber. No Markings other than the Weber logo. Not wood on handles but some sort of plastic composite. Very sturdy.

I have no idea but taking into account that they are in a very good shape + the fact that the handles are imitating wood I would say somewhere from the 90's.

Honestly, I have never seen them. Yeah, my guess is overseas production, prolly 90's vintage. Just a guess here... Cool looking set!
