Those are all Lamsons. Yes the six on the right are the steak knives. I hooked up with a guy on Ebay a while back, got most of the knives 60-75% off MSRP. I didn't ask any questions, if you know what I mean. I think I paid $60 for all 6 steak knives. The slicer and fork came as a combo. Actually, I don't really care for the slicer much. I may try to put a better edge on it once and see how it goes. Needs to be a little thicker, IMO. I use that chef knife on that maple board every day and only need to take it to a stone once or twice a year.

Sure sounds like you got a good deal. I like a thin stiff slicer. My favorite is a 70+ some year old 11.5" Harrington Cutlery Co.(Dexter).

I oil the handles...walnut. Many of the knives I buy are "rescues." They end up in thrift stores by way of the dishwasher. Bad for wooden handles. So I bring 'em home, soak them upright in a jar of water, let 'em dry and oil the wood. Bring most of 'em right back, and ready for a new edge.

To be honest, I often find Wusthoff and Henckels knives in the thrifts. I clean them up, too, and then pass them on, usually. I recently picked up a dozen Friodur JR Henckels steak knives for $3. Still in the box, wrapped in brown tissue paper (individually), with the original receipt from SOLINGER STAHLWAREN. New, in 1966, they were $2 apiece + shipping. Beautiful forged steak knives. They were bought as a gift.

$2 of 1966 money is probably about $16 in today's money. It's surprising how many people are unaware or unconcerned about the proper care of wood handled kitchen utensils.
