It's always a risk when buying flatware seeing only a few pictures and without actually handling the product first. Well, put that concern away. The designer of this flatware did more just make a great looking product, it seems that a considerable amount of time and effort went into the shape, design and feel as well. The wider handle actually feels better in the hand while using and is balanced very well. Each type of flatware has a different weight too. The knives are heavier, the larger forks have a nice weight, whereas the desert fork is very light. Overall, if you like the look and style of this product, don't hesitate to buy. You won't be disappointed.
