Back in 2015 Oprah Winfrey had her list of favorites and included this black matte titanium cutlery set from Knork. We have looked at Knorf’s Knife and Fork combo in a past post, and it’s seems they have dropped focus on the spork gimmick for a more robust product.
The Knork Black Matte Titanium Coated Stainless 20-Piece Set as shown above is using the strength of their patented design. This hand forged 20 piece black silverware with service for 4 set includes 4 each of dinner knife, dinner fork, salad fork, soup spoon and teaspoon.
Interestingly they list the flatware item weights:
Dinner Fork: 7.625” 78 g
Salad Fork: 6.75” 65 g
Dinner Knife: 9” 95 g
Teaspoon: 6.75” 75 g
Tablespoon: 7.625” 90 g
They claim to be dishwasher safe 18/0 stainless steel but ask you don’t use lemon or citrus scented detergent. I’m assuming they are concerned the citric acid could remove the titanium coated finish. In particular they call out Finish brand: “Using a non-citrus stainless steel liquid detergent is recommended, as any powders or pacs tend to be abrasive or harsh and can ruin the finish if they are not dissolved properly. This includes especially the Finish brand tabs with the red power balls in the middle, which seem to be the hardest to dissolve.”
