Look very nice on the table. Good weight, knives are comfortable in your hand & cut well. The only disappointment is that the gold is only on the front of the forks & spoons.
This is a good quality set of silverware. For those of you who like your silverware on the heavy side and like large silverware - these will suit fine. I do like heavier-weighted silverware and am pretty picky about the weight and balance of them in my hand but this flatware is enormous. A standard teaspoon is the size of a regular soup spoon. When I looked at the silverware at Bed Bath & Beyond, I noticed that all sets are trending toward the larger size. I have 2 small children though and this flatware looks huge in their little hands. I have to admit though that I didn't dislike them so much to send them back. : ) We are using them.
I'm working towards becoming a minimalist, so I donated my ornate flatware in favor of this set. Glad I did. Made by Sasaki, which is modern Asian design line. Notice the circle-shaped spoons. It's a unique pattern, which you will get used to after eating two meals. The first meal with the spoons seems a bit odd. The forks are European continental sized.... meaning larger than the ones we grew up with. That seems to be today's trend in flatware... bigger. This is service for eight, including serving pieces. I rate it 4 and 1/2 stars.
