Great flatware. Terrible stickers.
, more than a month ago.
Overall, very pleased with this product. The heft and balance in-hand are great and the mirror finish is beautiful. Two minor things keep them from getting the 5th star. First, the dessert spoon is very close in size to the dinner spoon; the heads of both are almost identical. It would've been nice if the dessert spoon had a smaller head for stirring coffee and eating ice cream. Second, each piece comes with a "Made in China" sticker on it and not only do you have to peel off each one manually, they also leave an adhesive residue that even after 5 washes, still hasn't come off. I'm afraid to use a chemical goo remover since it would likely damage the finish. Otherwise, I like this set a lot. Very modern and usable.
