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.
The set is beautiful and matches our new dishes perfectly. The price was great as well. The large spoons work great with normal eating but try to scoop ice cream and they bend.
We were quite disappointed when we received the silverware as the photos do not show the true tones of the handles. In person, the distinction between the gold and silver is much more pronounced and nowhere near as subtle as it appears in the photos. Not happy.
