I have been using the Ginko Lafayette for about one month and I LOVE it. I've had my eye on hammered flatware for years and am glad I held out for this set. It's nice and heavy, and feels great in the hand. It's very shiny and attractive. I've compared it to the hammered flatware set at a high-end kitchen goods chain and this is heavier and more beautiful to my eye.
Great quality and value for the price. The hammered finish in bright silver creates lots of sparkle for the dinner table. The pieces have a good weight and feel about them. "LayFayette" is a good choice for an every day casual setting, or it can be dressed up with nice linens and theme.

EVERY PIECE SAYS "CHINA-D" ON IT. but for made in China and the price, it's absolutely wonderful. it looks a little heavier in the picture than in person. way better than the crappy college mismatched ikea stuff i had. NOT Thanksgiving Dinner material, but perfect for a weekly dinner party get-together. hammered handles are classy but a bit flat feeling; i was hoping for a little more heft and ergonomic roundness, but that's the drawback to ordering flatware online. a solid four stars. not five though: the soup ladel is a bit dinky, the other serving pieces are right on. each piece is individually wrapped to prevent scratching during shipping. the knives butter a piece of toast in one swoop. the spoons are beautiful. the forks can be used for personal defense and allow maximum area exposure to the food. my only suggestion is to read all the reviews carefully before making your decision.

I love this set! I bought 2 of them, based on the reviews. I wasn't disappointed. It's nice and heavy in the hand. The fork tines are nicely spaced, I hate it when the tines are so close together that they can't pick up salad. I wasn't sure if I'd like the shape of the spoons, but they are great for soups etc. The little forks are very substantial too. The knives are nice sized and sharp! The set feels good, it's solid and attractive! No regrets here.

I really enjoy using this flatware set each night at dinner. The spoons are an odd shape, but are really comfortable to eat from. The hammered finish is really beautiful, and it washes up nicely in the dishwasher. I am happy to have this set!
