Flatware is an often overlooked essential of place settings -- but not for Renzo Piano. With extreme attention to detail, Piano, one of the world's leading architects, created this extremely sophisticated cutlery that will change your eating experience. Piano has left no detail unturned-- its soft, rounded and balanced handles and appropriate and thoughtful proportions are certainly created by an artist who respects the art of designing high-quality flatware.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a Finn or fan of Finnish design that doesn’t recognize the iittala logo, designed by Timo Sarpaneva in 1956 and inspired by his “i-line” range. The logo serves as a symbol of quality craftsmanship, timeless design, and thoughtful functionality. Many collectors ... More iittala

The forks are very sturdy and classy looking. The way the weight of the forks, and all the Piano silverware is distributed, feels comfortable in your hand.
ConsSadly, the forks were made in China, not Finland

Feels good in your hand
Wanted some more forks to add to an existing set. It is a nicely sized design that feels good in your hand: not heavy and not too light.

love this fork everytime I use it!
First I fell in love with the shape of Piano fork. Then when they arrived, I feel in love with the design. The right weight- not too light, and it feels great in my hand. Perfect length. My dinning experiences have gotten 100 times better when I started collecting Piano flatware.

This flatware is lovely and classical; a nice weight; I'm so glad I made the investment in it; I will enjoy it for many years to come. I'm going to use it with both my inherited 1930s china and my modern finnish dishes.

This is the most tactile-ly satisfying set of flatware on the face of the earth. Impeccably finished, gracefully weighted, and flawless in design, it is the flatware I waited fifty years to find.
Cons’Tis a bit costly, but worth it entirely.

Absolutely love this. The quality is top-notch. It feels heftier than the Arthur Price silverware from England and since it's dishwasher safe and stainless steel, I don't worry about soaking it in water for too long or possible tarnish. I definitely recommend this.
