Fabulous Flatware

Beautiful flatware that is great quality and reasonable price. I plan to buy another set of this same flatware in the near future because I love it.

I purchased this service for twelve for Wine Enthusiast several years ago and have used it daily. I have two complaints - one, the tablespoons are quite large (almost serving size) and the teaspoons are very small. Wish they made a soup size spoon for cereal, etc.
My major complaint is that the handles on this flatware are falling apart. The handles are comprised of 5 pieces - the main utensil, two pieces of resin, and two stainless steel pieces that cover the resin in the handles.
The stainless steel pieces covering the resin keep detaching from the resin on a regular basis. Super glue fixes the issue for a few weeks, but not always. And if the resin breaks - which it does as it is quite brittle - there is nothing left to glue to.

    Comments about Jean Dubost Laguiole 24-Piece Flatware Set (Pearlized Ivory):

    My husband and I fall in love with the steak knives our friends had at their house in Mexico so we decided to get the whole set. We read all the reviews, good and bad and still decided to buy it. The con is that the flatware is REALLY light. It actually really feels cheap when you hold it. It looks great, but feels cheap. I have not been using dishwasher, so I dont know if they crack, I handwash them. So far, they are O.K., but not worth almost 200 usd.

      Comments about Jean Dubost Laguiole 24-Piece Flatware Set (Pearlized Ivory):

      I love the set but I didn't notice that it does not come with salad forks. It is a pain. I would like it better if it had salad forks. My mistake. I didn't pay close enough attention and just assumed it came with them. You know what they say about making assumptions.

        Have reviewed similar products at exclusive and "pricey" stores. This product not only compares favorably but actually excels as to materials.

        Comments about Jean Dubost Laguiole 24-Piece Flatware Set (Pearlized Ivory):

        This flatware cracks and breaks after a few rounds in the dishwasher, even though it is marketed as dishwasher safe. Chunks of the plastic fell out and into bowls of soup making this a poorly constructed product as well as a consumer safety risk.

          For the same price, you are able to buy in most places only six steak knives. With this set, not only do you get steak-knife qualities knives, you also get forks, soup spoons and tea spoons. What a deal!

                    Having recently retired, I now find I have time to prepare and plan special meals for my grown-up family. All of us are fans of fantasy literature and enjoy fantasy/Medieval-style meals. This set of flatware is not only very functional, but it is just as beautiful as the picture promises it will be and perfectly sets the mood for our feasting. This is a fantastic price as well!
