    Interesting Question…

    My first marriage (circa 1980) we only had the Cake Knife itself engraved… as that seemed to be the norm back then… don’t recall seeing the Server part engraved… or I probably would have had it done.

    I did a GOOGLE for you – Engraved Cake Serving Set

    http://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&q=engraved+cake+serving+set&rlz=1W1TSCA_enCA455&bav=on.2,or.r_qf.&bvm=bv.44770516,d.dmg&biw=958&bih=381&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=tntfUdjYA8Pl4AOp4IDwAw#imgrc=d3rWuElG2HMx9M%3A%3Bg05yLtzSPa8RHM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.rockwellindustry.com%252Fproduct_images%252Fd%252F357%252Fcakesetserverheart__21773_zoom.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.rockwellindustry.net%252F%253Fpaged%253D5%3B577%3B444

    And noticed that the majority of Servers when Engraved would be done so in such a way as the handles would be aligned when displayed with the text right side up

    BUT… there were also several shown where the sets would look like yours when displayed.

    Lol… I’m guessing that the “logic” here at work is that when you actually use these tools, if you are right handed, you’d have the knife in your right hand, and the server in the left… and so the engraving would then be right side up and facing you / readable.

    Hope this helps,
