Halloween is upon us and this cutlery set looks perfect for the place setting of any slasher movie psycho killer. There is something about black matte flatware just just feels wrong in all the right ways and what really puts this set over the top is that steak knife. This cutlery says to you “I’m here to rip sh*t up!”.
The Hiware 24 Pieces Matte Black Silverware Set with Steak Knives looks to be a great value. Made of food grade anti-corrosion and anti-rust 18/10 stainless steel but not dishwasher safe. As with all matte flatware we recommend handwashing as over time you can lose the finish in a dishwasher. This is a 24-piece set for 4 that includes 4 salad forks, 4 dinner forks, 4 dinner knives, 4 dinner spoons, 4 teaspoons and additional 4 steak knives.
And four killer steak knives! “The sharp serrations that are easy to slice steaks or disassemble a turkey. The triple riveting handle is strong and durable even when cut hard, and the ergonomic design makes it very comfortable to hold.”

Aimie Botelho is a Artist and Blacksmith who came up with an interesting spoon design.
“The smiling spoon, and some process photos. I really, really enjoy how the little arms appear out of nowhere, formed by forging 2 dimples into the top of the bar and forcing the material downwards – no cutting involved. Steel is so. damn. neat.”

Fall is upon us and that means cooler weather, a yard full of leave and ghosts and goblins. There’s nothing like a fancy scary Halloween dinner for close friends and undead. And you really need the right flatware to set the frightening tone.
Boneware brings us the Skeleton Plastic Silverware Set. Let’s be clear, this is NOT disposable plastic cutlery. This is BPA & phthalate toxin free, FDA Compliant reusable cutlery.
“BoneWare Cutlery is 3x heavier and Underwriters Laboratory tested to be 6x strong than regular plasticware. The injection molds were hand polished so no sharp edges around the spoon or fork. However, one can actually stab salad with the fork instead of chasing it around the bowl, cut steak with the knife and scoop ice cream or peanut butter with the spoon! Long term tested to be dishwasher safe, lower rack. However, intense heat (steam) will melt the utensils. Lifetime Free Replacement Guarantee if not abused. The BoneWare prototypes were hand-sculpted referencing medical drawings to ensure accurate anatomy. Can be used as an educational tool while eating!”

This summer has been pretty good considering. And we here at the Cutlery Review have been able to get outdoors and do some backpacking and camping. One of the team bought himself the Stanley Adventure Camp Cook Set, seen here:

And it’s a great little cooking pot for boiling water and cooking stews or whatever. This thing is a classic for campers. But we ran into a problem when it came to cutlery when cooking in the Stanley. You see, Stanley here is about 11 inches tall and any normal spoon won’t reach the bottom and still have enough handle to keep your tender fingers away from the heat. A regular cooking spoon for use in pots is too big and tableware is too small. Talk about Goldilocks situation.
So we are looking at the finessCity Longest Titanium Long Handled Spoon. It’s 9.65 inches long and should do the trick. They claim its’ length is 1 inch Longer than any other Long Spoons available on Amazon. And that the polished bowl of Long Handle Spoon is bigger than any other Outdoor Spoon on Amazon. Made of 100% solid Titanium this backpacking long spoon is 0.9 oz/ 25.5gm in weight. And it comes with a Washable Premium Quality Waterproof Cloth Case. Waterproof and cloth? We’ll have to get back to you on that one.
