Hiware Matte Black Cutlery Set with Steak Knives – Perfect for Halloween

Hiware Matte Black Cutlery Set with Steak Knives

Halloween is upon us and this cutlery set looks perfect for the place setting of any slasher movie psycho killer. There is something about black matte flatware just just feels wrong in all the right ways and what really puts this set over the top is that steak knife. This cutlery says to you “I’m here to rip sh*t up!”.

The Hiware 24 Pieces Matte Black Silverware Set with Steak Knives looks to be a great value. Made of food grade anti-corrosion and anti-rust 18/10 stainless steel but not dishwasher safe. As with all matte flatware we recommend handwashing as over time you can lose the finish in a dishwasher. This is a 24-piece set for 4 that includes 4 salad forks, 4 dinner forks, 4 dinner knives, 4 dinner spoons, 4 teaspoons and additional 4 steak knives.

And four killer steak knives! “The sharp serrations that are easy to slice steaks or disassemble a turkey. The triple riveting handle is strong and durable even when cut hard, and the ergonomic design makes it very comfortable to hold.”

The Smiling Spoon by Aimie Botelho

Aimie Botelho is a Artist and Blacksmith who came up with an interesting spoon design.

“The smiling spoon, and some process photos. I really, really enjoy how the little arms appear out of nowhere, formed by forging 2 dimples into the top of the bar and forcing the material downwards – no cutting involved. Steel is so. damn. neat.”

Check out more photos of this spoon and it’s creation on her Facebook page here

Fall is upon us and that means cooler weather, a yard full of leave and ghosts and goblins. There’s nothing like a fancy scary Halloween dinner for close friends and undead. And you really need the right flatware to set the frightening tone.

Boneware brings us the Skeleton Plastic Silverware Set. Let’s be clear, this is NOT disposable plastic cutlery. This is BPA & phthalate toxin free, FDA Compliant reusable cutlery.

“BoneWare Cutlery is 3x heavier and Underwriters Laboratory tested to be 6x strong than regular plasticware. The injection molds were hand polished so no sharp edges around the spoon or fork. However, one can actually stab salad with the fork instead of chasing it around the bowl, cut steak with the knife and scoop ice cream or peanut butter with the spoon! Long term tested to be dishwasher safe, lower rack. However, intense heat (steam) will melt the utensils. Lifetime Free Replacement Guarantee if not abused. The BoneWare prototypes were hand-sculpted referencing medical drawings to ensure accurate anatomy. Can be used as an educational tool while eating!”

They are serious about the strength of this cutlery, check it out:

The Knork or “Nelson Fork” by Horatio Nelson

Knife, fork and spoon. That’s the three basic categories of cutlery. But you can crossbreed and mix and match, as seen here:

Today we are going to talk about the “Knork” which is the love child of the Fork and Knife. In short, you get a fork that you can use to cut your food before stabbing it and getting it into your gob. Now look at the photo of that old time knork up top. That’s a scary looking rusty blade attached that’s just looking to slice open the corner of your mouth isn’t it? I’m not going there.

But if you only had one arm like Horatio Nelson then this might be your only option. Horatio Nelson was a British naval admiral who went to war with Napoleon in 1798. And it cost him his ark which was amputated aboard a ship. So for his arm and efforts the British Army gave him a golden Knork which was thereon referred to as “Nelson’s Fork”.

The modern day Knork is a lot more practical. Back in 2015 Oprah Winfrey even a knork set on her list of favorites.

And that was a historical cutlery lesson for you.
