This was a gift for someone, so I don't know anything about it. She seems to like it quite a bit, so I suppose this was a successful purchase.
Looks nice in the picture, feels cheap in the hand
The product looked great in the pictures, and was obviously for sale at a great price, so I took the bait and bought in. When they arrived however, I could immediately tell that I had purchased a very cheap product. I'm not sure what type of metal was used to forge this set but it feels like tin, or some other very light metal composite. The pieces feel like plastic flatware in your hands and are very thin. I am almost embarrassed to use them with company now, but hey, you get what you pay for... and now I'm paying for it.
I purchased two sets of these. I liked the simple classic lines. The flatware is a medium heavy weight. I've thrown these in the dishwasher a couple of times so far and they have come out in good shape. I haven't noticed any rust or other discolorations on them.
