Well, that’s a nice family portrait of cutlery isn’t it? They call this a starter set and I’d say it’s a start to a large family and an adventure (pun intended). The International Silver Adventure is a flatware setting for 8 people. This includes a hostess set that consists of a large tablespoon, 1 pierced tablespoon and 1 cold meat fork (what would make it a hot meat fork?). The full set includes salad forks, dinner forks, dinner knives, dinner spoons and teaspoons.
It’s made of 18/0 stainless steel and is a good price for a complete set to fit a new kitchen.

I laughed so hard I was stomping my feet in the theater watching the movie “Deadpool”. It’s a very crude, immature and over the top super hero movie. And someone has decided that a Deadpool Knife Block makes perfect sense. It does to me. Cunning cutlery indeed.
Britt Michelsen who is a Chemical Engineer in Hamburg, Germany used modelling software and a 3D printer to create this amazing knife block. Now personally I would have added a serving spoon to gag him with and a couple of forks into the eyes to round out the flatware torture, but that’s just me.
Sadly, not available for sale, probably not licensed by Marvel. But if you have a good 3D printer you can make one yourself.

For health reasons I’ve been on a reduced sodium diet for years now. Blood pressure issues equal bland food. At first you really miss the taste of salt but it does subside a bit. But now the really smart people at University of Tokyo’s Rekimoto Lab have come up with some interesting cutlery.
This prototype electric fork uses electrical stimulation to simulate the taste of salt. It basically tricks your tongue into thinking it’s tasting salt. The battery-powered fork completes the circuit when the tines make contact with your tongue, electrically stimulating your taste buds. Like licking a 9V battery maybe, I don’t know. Even more interesting is that with only $18 worth of electronics this future fork can create tastes that are both salty and sour, and has adjustable levels of stimulation. Cyber cutlery is our future it seems.
Can you buy it? Nope, not yet. Can’t find much about it on their website either. Soon come, maybe.

We have talked about Villeroy & Boch before and it’s worth saying again. From the country of Germany, Villeroy & Boch is family-owned since 1748. They are an award-wining, innovative company rooted in a time-honored tradition. Villeroy & Boch custom dinnerware can be found on luxurious Orient Express trains, the Pope’s table in Vatican, the tables of crowned European royalty, and has been a staple in renowned hotels and restaurants on every continent.
I loved the hammered look of this 60-Piece Blacksmith set. It is a 12 place setting made 18/10 stainless-steel which consists of 12 each of these: dinner knife, dinner fork, dessert fork, dinner spoon, and teaspoon.
