I noticed a month or so ago that some of the fork tines were not lined up any more. And then, I read someone online asking for simple flatware with good balance and someone else recommended Ikea's SMAKGLAD. A significant upgrade from $8 (And I think, actually I paid $6 for each 20-piece set.) to $30 but, heck, I'm a big fucking spender. So I ordered a set.
OMG heaven! I love this set. The size, the lines, the heft, the balance. I've had them now for about a week and every time I use one, I'm delighted all over again. It's ridiculous but so fun. I'm going to buy a second set next weekend when I'm down that way - just in case.
