Versatile and subtly modern, the Corrie flatware collection from Ginkgo International features a gleaming mirror-polished finish and a comfortable handle with a flat, rounded end and smooth indentation running its length. Long fork tines, a slender knife blade, and generously-sized oval spoon bowls complete the modern look. This 20-piece flatware set (service for four) includes four each: 9-1/4-inch dinner knife; 8-inch dinner fork; 7-inch salad fork; 8-inch soup spoon; and 7-inch teaspoon. All pieces are made from 18/0 stainless steel with a satisfying heft and balance. Durable, dishwasher-safe and fully guaranteed against defects in workmanship. Avoid prolonged exposure to water or acidic foods to prevent spotting. Family-owned and operated since 1977, Ginkgo International designs quality products that are "made for your life."
Named for the imperial villa in Kyoto famed for its beautiful gardens, Katsura flatware attractively sets a table with an organic, freeform design. Katsura handles taper in at the neck, flow outward, and taper in again at the ends to form a teardrop effect. While the top of each handle features a smooth ridge outlining a recessed panel, the back rounds outward for a comfortable hold. Spoon bowls also feature a pronounced teardrop shape, and the outer fork tines gracefully angle inward. Made of 18/10 stainless steel in a bright mirror finish, the flatware pieces exhibit a medium-weight, nicely balanced heft.
This 20-piece set makes an excellent starter set for a couple setting up a household, or for stocking a second home. Four place settings are included, each of which is comprised of a 9-1/2-inch dinner knife, 8-inch dinner fork, 7-inch salad fork, 7-3/4-inch soup spoon, and 6-3/4-inch teaspoon. Designed to be used on a regular basis, the flatware is conveniently dishwasher-safe, although soaking in water and prolonged exposure to acidic foods should be avoided to prevent spotting. A family-owned business since 1977, Ginkgo International is dedicated to quality design and value when it comes to flatware for the home. --Ann Bieri
