Finally our friend Babish has his own set of cutlery. We knew it was coming but it was a long time coming.
It’s what you would expect from Babish, simple and effective. This 20 piece set of cutlery is made of dishwasher safe 18/8 stainless steel. It consists of four dinner knives, four dinner forks, four salad forks, four tablespoons and four teaspoons.
It seems to be fine flatware, it’s got his name on the knife and it’s a heavy set with a moderate price for the type of flatware. Hey it’s Babish, he’s gotta pay the bills cause Youtube monetization ain’t exactly covering the cost of inflation these days.

It is a rare event here at the Cutlery Review that we will talk about knives. Yes, we know that knives are cutlery but the “knife world” is so vast that we are hesitant to go to there. But this knife isn’t just a knife and it’s our camping/hiking/picnicking fave.
This Laguiole Knife and Corkscrew has been in our pocket for wine fueled picnics for over a decade and we love it. They are expensive but it was a gift so that helps 🙂
This Laguiole 12 cm Model with corkscrew weighs 97 g with a blade that is 10 cm and made of 12C27 stainless steel. It features a Juniper wood handle with shepherd’s cross (that’s the pins in the handle in a cross shape). The Bee and spring forged from one piece and fully handmade. The Bee? That’s a the middle of the knife and the sign this is a true Laguiole. This is some classic classy cutlery.

No, it’s not a really long spoon. No, it’s not a spork. It’s a titanium folding spoon. Why? Because a folding spoon can fit in those small places like your tiny cook pot and it’s super light and super handy. It’s cutlery that does the job but doesn’t take up all the space. It’s a handy flatware.
GADIEMKENSD makes a 100% titanium folding spoon that unfolded is 53mm long and 40mm wide.
Folded it’s 80mm and it always weighs 18g.
This convenient little spoon tucked away it your hiking cook kit is a life saver. Too many times we seen people with melted plastic sporks wishing they had this spoon.

‘Rething’ by Anastasia Starostina creates a fusion of forms based on their functions and does it with amazing flair. It’s not often here at The Cutlery Review that we feature flatware that is not in production for sale but this design is so elegant we really want to show it to our readers.
It’s the fine folks at YankoDesign.com that brought this work to our attention:
“The abstraction of each of the objects has stretched the limitations of their initial potential”, says Anastasia Starostina, a Russia-based industrial designer.
“The different cutlery units cover a wide range of cuisines. The knife exists as an independent piece, and can be paired along with the other cutlery sets, allowing you to effectively cut and portion your meals. The three other cutlery pieces cover ranges of cuisine from Asian styles (with the spoon and the chopsticks) to Continental (spoon + fork) and even a third spoon/shaver hybrid for garnishes and embellishments like cheeses, truffles, and sauces.”
