Okay, it's not the authentic silver associated with the original King's pattern. Not even silver plated.
But it beautiful. Lovely heavy, quality stainless steel cutlery that would grace any dinner table with class. But, also, perfectly acceptable to use on a day to day basis. You don't feel you've got to leave it boxed, put it away and just take it out for cleaning and special occasions. The pieces are easy to hold and don't slip like plain stainless steel because of the raised pattern.
The sole reason I've given it 4 and not a 5 score is because of the length of the fork prongs. They're so long, you've got to watch you don't stab yourself in the larynx when your eating. I'm not sure at all why the designers did this. To us, they are, clearly, quite a bit too long. This lets down just a little what is a gorgeous cutlery sent to own down. However, on the positive side of this, my family have got completely used to them now which shows it's not a disaster.
A definite thumbs up for this cutlery set for quality and price.

Great quality, very pleased with the product - only thing is the forks are too wide to fit into the cutlery tray of our dishwasher, so have to be washed on the top rack! A small niggle, love the cutlery.
