This 24 piece set is made of dishwasher safe 18/10 stainless steel. It has a simplified elegance that many other have since copied. Each place setting includes a fork, knife, tablespoon and teaspoon.

Most of the time here at the Cutlery Review we talk about flatware you can find at the store or online to purchase. It’s not often we have an example of DIY cutlery. But this amazing video from Felix Immler is a great example of what you can do to improvise a spoon when all you have is garbage. Enjoy!
