Conceived and hand-made in about 1845, the Hen & Rooster® brand had a modest beginning as the notion of Carl Bertram.

Mr. Bertram was a well known owner of a poultry business in Solingen, Germany where he began manufacturing his own line of cutlery.

Because of his association with the poultry industry in the surrounding communities, Bertram adopted the now famous Hen & Rooster® logo
to mark his brand in about 1865.
