David Mellor, Cutlery, the Man and the Company

David Mellor, Cutlery, the Man and the Company

Everyone around here knows we worship David Mellor who is the Eric Clapton of cutlery. And we have to mention Corin Mellor his son who has kept his father’s work alive.

ArchitecturalDigest.com has a great story on David and Corin’s work and the shops in London that I forgot to visit last time I was there. Dammit!

For those unaware I quote the article:

David Mellor, the man and the company, created handmade silver and stainless-steel flatware that an obituary described as embodiments of “voluptuous simplicity.”

Gourmet Settings Pure 20-Piece Flatware Set

Gourmet Settings Pure

We have reviewed Gourmet Settings flatware quite a few times before. And I have to say this cutlery set called “Pure” really does live up to it’s name.

The very simple design reminds me of the old airline cutlery but with more length making it more useable. This is the kind of cutlery I’d expect to see in a space station like in the movie 2001.

The set is made of 18/10 stainless steel with a matte finish. The Pure 20-piece set includes service for 4 people, dinner spoons, dinner knives, teaspoons, salad forks and dinner forks.

Yamazaki Merge Flatware

Yamazaki Merge Flatware

Wrapping up our look at Yamazaki cutlery  this month we finish with Yamazaki Merge.

This is one interesting looking set of cutlery. The very stocky design makes it look very futuristic and maybe too short? The pieces are 11 inches long so it’s more about mass I guess. These things look solid to say the least.

This is a five piece place setting consisting of a Dinner Knife, Dinner Fork, Salad/Dessert Fork, Soup/Cereal Spoon and Teaspoon. Made of dishwasher safe 18/8 Stainless Steel with a limited lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects.

Yamazaki Byzantine Gold Accent Cutlery

Continueing with our reviews of Yamazaki cutlery this month and next up is the Yamazaki Byzantine Gold Accent Cutlery.

This is a 5 piece place setting that includes a Dinner Knife, Dinner Fork, Salad/Dessert Fork, Soup/Cereal Spoon and Teaspoon. The flatware is made of dishwasher 18/8 Stainless Steel but I’d worry about how the gold accents hold up to high citric cleaners.

The texture on the handles have an amazing look and that gold flair really sets it off.
