Japanese studio Nendo created this for the Belgian brand Valerie Objects, a wonderful combination of form and function cutlery called “Skeleton”, which kinna fits with Halloween coming up. It’s a sculptural set of cutlery that can be hooked onto cups, plates or whatever to keep the flatware from soiling the nice tablecloth. They call it Skeleton because it’s what cutlery looks like when x-rayed (so they say).
There are four pieces to the set: a spoon, a teaspoon, a fork and a knife. They feature a distinctive kink where the handle joins the head. That’s the trick in this treat.
Available in stainless steel or a black PVD coating, the set comes with a dedicated stand and wall hook for display purposes. It’s not for sale yet, but will be at Valerie Objects this December for about $30 per utensil.
Halloween is coming up and you should start planning your party now. And to be honest, I wouldn’t need Halloween as an excuse to use this creepy cutlery to add a little excitement to the table.

Wow, that’s a big fork. Like, really big. How big is this colossal cutlery you ask? It’s over 10 inches long. The wonderful folks at Sur La Table bring you their “Silicone Ultimate Fork”.
It’s made of food safe silicone and is heat-resistant up to 446°. It has a metal core to keep it from being a little too flexible. A very handy item to have in the kitchen but what sells me is that it will never harm your scratch resistant teflon cookware. And yup, it’s dishwasher safe. That’s fantastic flatware.

Corin Mellor is the son of the famous David Mellor who some consider the king of cutlery. We certainly do here at The Cutlery Review. Remodelista.com brings us a very insightful interview with Corin about growing up as the son of “Britain’s most serious, modest, and greatest postwar product designer”.
Here’s a great quote in regards to the Pride Flatware shown above: “Although the design has a period 1950s aesthetic, it also has a timeless quality and is particularly delicate and refined both to look at and to eat with.”
And one more longer quote that is amazing about cutlery care: “Cutlery will ultimately become scratched. This is inevitable, no matter how expensive the cutlery; it can’t be avoided. You’ll notice the scratches after a few months use, but as the cutlery ages, it will gradually develop into a nice patina. Our spoons and forks are made from 18/10 stainless steel, material that is virtually indestructible and very rarely causes any problems. Knife blades, however, are made from a different grade of stainless steel with a higher carbon content that enables the blade to be sharpened to a cutting edge. This material is slightly more susceptible to corrosion. We therefore recommend that knives are removed from the dishwasher at the end of the cycle, or even better, washed and dried by hand.”
