Designed in 1975, this flatware set has some sensible attributes to be sure (if only it were a tad bit more sensible price wise too…).
Carl Pott dedicated his career to studying the ergonomics of eating and using what he learned to design innovative flatware…To create the five-tined fork, which was an innovation when it was introduced, Pott extended its width and made the shape slightly spooned. These changes made for easier scooping of sauces and vegetables, like peas. The knife has a micro-serrated edge for cutting, and each piece has a fine groove at the end of each handle. “I am far from granting flatware more importance than it deserves,” said Pott. “However, as a daily tool, assuming it is functional and aesthetically pleasing, it is one of the cornerstones of our culture. How can we reach the summit, when the foundation of that which is ours, our home and our tools, is not solid, full of clarity and beauty?” Pott 33 is made of 18/10 stainless steel and each piece is handcrafted by artisans at a company of remarkable pedigree…The five piece set includes a knife, tablespoon, teaspoon, dinner fork, and salad fork. Made in Germany.
