This beautifully crafted cutlery set from WMF has a brilliant shine finish from their trade mark 18/10 stainless steel Cromargan®. Patented in 1927 it is of the highest quality and is integral to all WMF products which are recognised and sold world wide. Cromargan from WMF has 18% chrome for shine and 10% nickel for lustre and strength, the nickel also helps prevent rust and scratches, this means it will look great for a long time while working hard. All knives however have to be stronger than nickel allows to offer optimum cutting ability, so for this reason nickel is replaced (in the knives only) with molybdenum to make sure they meet the expectations of today's consumers. The knife in this set is manufactured in this way in one piece which means that because of it's different composition it will be heavier than the fork when both are held at the same time.
WMF has been a manufacturer since 1853, many of it's early products can be seen regularly on Antiques programmes, they have many collectors around the world. WMF pioneered the manufacture of silver plate and 18/10 stainless steel in the early part of the 20th century both of which went onto to become industry standards. It has always offered cutting edge designs from Art Nouveau and Art Deco right up to today's challenging requirements of premium quality and longevity at affordable prices. WMF are based in Germany where they have manufacturing, warehousing and administration facilities; they also have manufacturing facilities across Europe and in the far east which means they remain competitive whilst maintaining their reputation for quality. WMF have 11 wholly owned subsidiaries across Europe, the Far East and America they have over 150 shops in Germany trading alongside other retailers on the high street. In the UK WMF have 30 concession shops in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales also trading side by side with many major department stores and independent retailers of all sizes and in all locations.
The cutlery is exactly what I wanted for our new home. WMF is a known quality brand for stainless steel and the cutlery lives up to expectations. Read morePublished on 16 Feb. 2011 by amerz

This set is definitely great value for money, but they are not quite as nice as the photo might have you believe, well, had me believe anyway. Read morePublished on 19 Mar. 2009 by Mr. Graham J. Davis
