Here at The Cutlery Review we had looked at the Gourmet Settings Treble Clef Flatware Set a while back. It is a clever design but we are looking for something even more rustic which led us to another “Gourmet Settings” design called the “Twist and Shout”.
We wanted rustic and we found cutlery that would serve well on any vikings table! This handmade flatware has stainless steel handles that are polished black with clever twisted and knotted end loop. That loop would come in handy for using on a hanging cutlery tree for storage (but that is for another post another day). The business end has a polished mirror finish.
A 20-piece set with service for four that includes a dinner fork, dinner knife, salad fork, table spoon and teaspoon. These are dishwasher safe and covered by a 25-year warranty and before you ask, no, they do not contain pewter.

Let’s think about this for a second, who would buy cutlery that was Halloween themed that wasn’t disposable? Ozzy Osborne? The Munsters? Hard to say, but pretty much all the flatware we look at when it comes to Halloween parties is plastic and disposable. But that doesn’t keep your kids from washing it off to play with it later. These would be good a surprise in your children’s lunches during Halloween as well.
This set from Party America is called “Plastic Fun Shaped Halloween Flatware- Halloween Party” which pretty much explains everything about it 🙂 The set includes four witch forks, four ghost spoons and four pumpkin knives. The cutlery pieces are six inches in length which makes it the right size for both children and adults.

Life Labs who make the Liftware spoon which is designed to help people with Parkinson’s tremors had been bought out by Google of all people. Google and Apple both have been making baby steps in the medical market and this seems to be one of those steps.
Life Labs states on their blog: “We’re especially excited to work with the Google team to scale our operations and reach even more people who could benefit from using tremor-canceling devices”

There is a city in Germany called “Essen” which means “eat”, and “Stahl” means “steel”. So we have from Hampton Forge the Essenstahl flatware set. “Eat Steel” sounds like a good name for a Heavy Metal band.
Strange that we don’t see much copper for cutlery. For color I mean, not construction. We see silver, gold and even black. But copper doesn’t get the time at the table it deserves in my opinion.
This 20 piece set is made of dishwasher safe 18/0 stainless steel with a 25-year warranty. It includes 4 dinner forks, 4 dinner knives, 4 dinner spoons, 4 salad forks and 4 teaspoons.
