I've been looking for quality flatware of this style and this is my 3rd attempt. We wore out the first set which rusted and came apart at the metal joints. (mostly spoons & forks). They did not come from Overstock. This set seems to be more sturdy and I'm taking care not to soak them. They are dishwasher safe. I will probably buy more when needed.
I have 4 sets of these for two houses and am about to order another. They are heavy, substantial and really attractive. I have heard some reviews complain of rust and dishwasher problems. We live ocean front where everything metal other than 316 stainless (and even that needs to be cleaned with surface rust regularly) but we have had no problem with this flatware whatsoever. A couple of the sets are over 5 years old. We love them.
I live in FL so it's nice to have my silverware on display. With the inevitable visit of unexpected creatures in this state I sleep better knowing the unknown does not lurk near my silverware. It is exactly as advertised in terms of splendor , color accuracy and display. The shafts are a lot fatter than I was expecting. I have yet to not taste metal when I suck on a spoon though. Hopefully it holds up well over time.
