I wasn't looking for anything fancy, just something affordable. when i saw this for a reasonable price it was perfect! It came on time and there were no issues or problems which was great because i needed it fast. The handles are lighter than the blades but I didn't mind because the look was what I wanted and it was beautiful. The blades came shiny and clean, no tarnishing.We used it for our wedding and it was the perfect fit. I'd recommend buying it to anyone not wanting anything too fancy. It looked nice and got the job done and that's what I was looking for. You could simply tie on some ribbon to make it match your theme a little better.
