Sabre Bistro Shiny Stainless Flatware Set

Sabre Bistro Shiny Stainless Flatware Set

Sabre Paris is really going for that classic, solid and dependable look with this understated cutlery set. This flatware looks formidable. I don’t know if it’s the rivets on the handles, the very pointed fork tines or that serrated knife? This is cutlery that could survive generations and a few hostile encounters. It almost scares me.

The Sabre Flatware Set Stainless Steel Black Bistrot is a 5 piece setting that is service for 4 which equals 20-pieces. The five pieces are soup spoon, dinner knife, dinner fork, salad fork and tea spoon. The black handles are made of high quality resin and the cutlery itself of dishwasher safe 18/10 stainless steel. These sets are imported from France.

“Tablespoon” in her recipe book didn’t actually mean Tablespoon

Tablespoon" in her recipe book didn't actually mean Tablespoon

This wonderful tweet was brought to our attention by our wonderful sister who no doubt was referring to our wonderful Grandmother D. The tweet itself is by Shiv Ramdas and here’s the link to the original tweet. And where it became rather infamous over on reddit.

He goes on to mention in the twitter thread: “I should point out that none of this even refers to the most dreaded recipes in there, AKA the Blue Spoon recipes, which have this name because the steps have helpful tips like “Add 2 blue spoons of sugar” because I don’t even have it in me to attempt this boss battle.”

The blue spoon is a great way of specifying exactly what cooking cutlery you need to use in the kitchen. I’m certain my Grandmother used the blue spoon regularly. Another classic piece of cooking equipment for her was the” golden syrup” can, as that was just right for cut dough for perogies. Or was that my Mother? I’m certain as soon as I post this I’ll be proven wrong.

If you are looking for your own blue spoon, here’s a nice one from Amazon:

Yamazaki Bolo 5 Piece Ice Cream Set

Yamazaki Bolo 5 Piece Ice Cream Set

We’ve written quite a few articles about Yamazaki cutlery products here at The Cutlery Review over the years. And we’ve seen quite a bit of traffic and fielded a few questions about them. There is something about the Japanese design esthetic when it comes to cutlery that just seems out of the box in the best way.

The Yamazaki Bolo 5 Piece Ice Cream Set really has that “out of this world” design. It reminds me of the cutlery from the 2001 movie.

This flatware set is intended for ice cream but don’t limit yourself, it really could used for almost anything. This cutlery set is a “signature dish” detail for the budding chef. Built of dishwasher safe 18/0 stainless steel with a beautiful satin finish this set includes four 7-inch ice cream spoons and a 8-1/2-inch ice cream serving spoon.

Killer Cutlery or Fatal Flatware

Killer Cutlery or Fatal Flatware

This was sent to use by a longtime reader. They asked if it was killer cutlery or fatal flatware?

A spoon connected to a gun?

Is this an artistic statement that we are killing ourselves with what we eat?

Is that medicine in the spoon? Are we forcing by threat someone to take the medicine?

This piece is by Anita Larkin. Here’s her bio:

Anita Larkin is represented by Defiance Gallery, Sydney. Using collected domestic objects, casting parts of the human body in bronze, and beeswax, making felted forms, and materially transforming salvaged broken objects, her sculptures question repair and brokenness, playfully disrupting the familiar.

So many questions. We took a look at the artists website and found no clues.
