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.
Jewelry Kingdom brings us this set called “Personality Silver Black Skull Skeleton” which is made of dishwasher safe hypoallergenic stainless steel-that is guaranteed high strength and hardness. Which will never fade and highly resistant to rust and corrosion.
It is a 3 piece sets including 1 dinner fork, 1 spoon, and 1 knife. This is fun freak flatware at it’s finest!

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.”

So Ginkgo International states this Le Prix Cultery set is in “Mimosa Yellow”. But to me that color is and always will be “Melamine Yellow” and part of my childhood. And they add that the Le Prix pattern was first created for Ginkgo in the late 70’s in a small village in Southern France. So yup, late 70s is my childhood 🙂
The Le Prix is a four person setting with 20 pieces total that includes four each of a salad fork, dinner fork, dinner knife, dinner spoon and teaspoon. Made of dishwasher safe 18/0 Stainless Steel.
