Welcome Burch, I know nothing about your knives except that they are exceptional. Maybe someone will be along to comment on them. Congratulation on such a beautiful set.

I'm with Floyd:
B) I'm clueless about your knives, but I know what I like and I like what I see
III) Someone will be along soon who's much smarter than I am about such things
Fourth) Congrats on a sweet set!
Take care and God bless,

Wow! That is some beautiful and high dollar iron! I don't know a thing about them beyond that.

Welcome to AAPK!!
Not my area of collecting, but I’ve been a prolific reader of subjects on things that go”cut”, for over thirty years.
I know that your knives were a collaborative work between a man and woman. I forget which was which, but I believe one was an engraver and I really cannot recall what contribution the other offered.
They were pricey when new, but I don’t know anything about current market values.
You might check EBay for previously sold knives. That will give you an idea re’ true values.

The September 2011 issue of Knife World has an article titled "Adventures in the Knife Trade: Reminisienses of Shaw-Leibowitz" by Sherrill Shaw that describes their work and their partnership. Go to "The Vault" page of https://knifemagazine.com
and you can buy a back issue or download it if you are a digital subscriber.

Welcome to AAPK.
One of the great (and under-used) resources on this forum is the “search” function. It can be found by clicking on Quick links on the upper left. Scroll down and click on Search. The search page will open. Then type in the word you want to search for and submit it. In this case I searched for Liebowitz. And got back four pages of posts. search.php?keywords=Liebowitz&terms=all ... mit=Search
So there’s lots of information here on the forum about Shaw-Liebowtz and their knives, including pictures. Enjoy!

to AAPK. I believe there is a book illustrating their work. I am not sure where to find it but I would start by looking in Knife Magazine as they have a large library of books for sale. If nothing turns up there, I'd try Amazon.
Best of luck and keep us posted.
