I purchased this product because of the 18/10 stainless steel, the price, & I had company coming for the holiday's. I have had a set by Mikasa 18/10 for the past 12 yrs and have had no problems with them rusting or tarnishing in anyway and I thought this set would be of the same quality - It is not. We have had this set for 1 month. The set itself is very nice looking but not as thick and due to the high shine finish, is showing scratches already. The most dissapointing is that pieces are rusting already. Not too sure how much longer they will last, but when the time comes to replace I will shell out the extra $ and make sure I do not purchase a set made in China.

This is exactly the same pattern as some other flatware I have so it was nice to be able to have more pieces. It is very handsome...excellent for casual or fine dining and 18/10 quality...I never buy less than 18/10!

I was a little worried as one of the reviews said their flatware had rusted and spotted after the first use. I've had mine about 2 weeks and used them with lots of company. I couldn't be happier with the weight and design of the flatware. They have held up perfectly to use so far. All pieces are oversized so I needed a new flatware tray. I'm very happy with my purchase.
The forks and spoons were slightly thinner than I thought they would be, but don't bend, pit, rust, etc.. Good quality materials, and aren't uncomfortably thin for use. The knives are fatter handled, which created a tiny problem in my silverware drawer - but only because it couldn't hold 12 steak and 12 butter knives that were this fatness. The knives are made of the higher carbon stainless so they will have surface rust if you let them sit in water (including in the dishwasher) for too long. A quick wipe will keep it from happening, and light scrubbing will clean any off that already started. The dinner-size spoons are quite large - I find myself using the smaller set much more often for almost every meal.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It's stainless steel, so that's the color - no special finishes.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good.
No complaints here and our set has been through the dishwasher a multitude of times and looks like new. It in't as heavy as our Yamazaki Austen Ice which was close to $40 for a 5 piece setting. We LOVE that you get a serrated knife with each setting AND the set comes with some serving pieces. We are using this as our daily flatware and for the price, I have no qualms about it. Our Yamazaki was horrendously expensive for 12 place settings and has dwindled over the years and is notoriously difficult to replace, especially by the individual piece(and $$$$!!) - I figure this set cost roughly a quarter of the Yamazaki and that set held up okay for about 15 years so if we get 4 or 5 years worth of use out of this, we'll be ahead!
Despite the slight difference in weight, the pieces are fairly well balanced and feel solid. I ordered another set on here that I sent back because it was just too cheap feeling.
Just a caveat: these are stamped '18/10 stainless steel' but they are also stamped 'made in China'. I liked the look of the pattern(and do so even more in person) and I'd done a little research showing St. James as a quality brand- but I'm generally not super fond of buying things I know straight up are made in China(though it is difficult to avoid these days).
Second caveat: I have a nice big silverware drawer that has two levels and so had plenty of room for both sets of knives, salad and dinner forks, soup and teaspoons and my older silverware. BEWARE! The knives are hefty! Especially the handles! They take up quite a bit of space. I even eded up packing half one direct and the other in the opposite.
On a strictly product basis- the teaspoons and salad forks are significantly smaller than the dinner forks and soup spoons which I like(maybe not everyone does, though). The dinner fork has loooong tines. :) The serrated knife is sharp- sharp enough I would not entrust it to a child- and even the regular knives are not entirely blunt. I love that the set came with a meat serving fork, a slotted serving spoon, a large regular serving spoo and a butter knife. I may try to hunt down a hostess set with a cake server, etc. in this pattern but if not available, no big deal... I can just use the real silver. :)
Pattern design also big on extra steak knife in package, Also, of one very extensive positive review! on Apr 29, 2015

Comfortable handles. 18/10 and versatile. Everyday yet classy on May 4, 2015
1) this will be my 1st brand new good set (tired of gimmes)
2) lost knives and forks some how kept disappearing and the kids are not living at home any more lol
3) they look absolutely lovely and a simple pattern they are the same quality as the set i have weight wise and hopefully will stand up to my husband who thinks the big spoons are ice cream scoops ;)
4) perfect for what we need now i can throw out the old stuff!lazeedragon on May 5, 2015
