Reed & Barton Palmer 18/10 Stainless Steel 65-Piece Set

Reed & Barton Palmer 65-Piece SetI really like the hammered look on the handles of this flatware from Reed & Barton (and it hides scratches). The “Palmer 65-piece cutlery set” is setting for 12 with forks, knives, teaspoons, salad forks, and place spoons. It includes a full serving set with a tablespoon, cold meat fork, pierced tablespoon, butter knife, and a sugar spoon.

It is made of 18/10 Stainless steel and is dishwasher safe with a 25-Year limited warranty. There has been some complaints about rust spotting, but that can be prevented, please refer back to our post Rust spots on Cutlery on how to avoid.

A Historical View on Cutlery

uncommon cutleryDid you know that forks were not used much until the 16th century? And that most food was eaten with fingers or a spoon until the 1500s? Spoons and knives have been around for a long time, forks not so much. Cutlery is a recent part of our civilization in the grand perspective.

Read this great article written by Robert Britnell for the Orillia Packet about how cutlery wasn’t all that common.
