Rated 5 out of 5 by badmissh Consistently outstanding
I first found this flatware when I lived temporarily in Los Angeles for work a few years ago -- needed to furnish my little bungalow and sprung for 4 settings of this flatware. Years later, back home in Chicago, I just ordered 4 more in order to make sure I don't run out when guests come! The quality on this set is amazing. Heavy stainless with a great weight to it and all the pieces are perfectly sized/shaped. Not only that, but years later there's not a scratch on them! Kind of magical considering they've endured two moves, handwashing by my boyfriend who loves the scrubby side of the sponge, and a lot of dining use. So thrilled to find this set again!

These flatware are supposed to be stainless steel, but I had to return them twice for rusting. I ordered six place settings, washed them once and ended up with little rust spots on mostly the knives and forks. I thought maybe it was just a defect, so I tried them again - same thing. They are beautiful, but save your money unless you don't mind using rust remover every time they get wet. Big disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by anthroKimber beautiful
i've had this flatware for about a year and i love it. its great quality (and never bends when im digging into frozen ice cream with one of my pretty spoons!) and the etched design is beautiful. even after a year and almost daily washing i have no rust spots. the directions for the flatware said not to use detergents with lemon in them because it damages stainless steel, so i havent. after a year they do have some very tiny streaky scratches (i think it is my very old, poor-quality washing machine's fault), but they are still beautiful and shiny! i assume this is normal wear that you would see with any flatware. even my husband loves them, and he rarely comments on anything.
