J.A. Henckels International Provence for 8

Henckels45A service for 8 set with a whopping 45 pieces. The thing that strikes me most about this set is that it’s 18/10 stainless steel that looks and feels like silverware. But no polishing and it is dishwasher safe. Use it everyday and use it for the special occasions. It’s Henckel so you know you are getting quality. This would be a wedding present the future couple would use for years.

David Mellor’s Minimal Cutlery

David MellorMinimalist design in flatware is where it’s at right now and for good reason. The fancy shmancy silverware days of yore are behind us and we welcome our utilitarian overlords. David Mellor’s “Minimal” is lean and mean. The fork and knife are functional and the design flows. The spoon on the other hand is more of a ladle and doesn’t fit well. For a better spoon and something a little less minimal check out his “London” design.
