Looks at these handles. Just look at them. It’s not often cutlery goes for an unusual texture (other than horn) on the handles. I have to say that this is some stylistic risk taking by Oneida’s Italian designer. And it would be on your part as well to fit your table layout. But in my opinion it doesn’t go too far out there to be off-putting or too wacky. This 45 piece set is a service for 8 and the standard 18/0 stainless dishwasher safe steel.
