Minimalist Flatware,complete by ou8nrtist2 Minimalist Flatware,complete by ou8nrtist2
So I finally got the knife design down and added to the bunch. I've been using these for almost a month and feel the weight imbalance with the long tapering handle is NOT as much of an issue as I first thought. It's not to say these are perfect by any means ,but the whole point was to design a relatively aesthetic and serviceable set in the Minimalist Style that would be easy to manufacture with current laser cutting.
So,I'm willing to make the compromise of the not-so-perfect balance in favor of retaining the clean lines and relatively ease and effort of manufacturing.
By the way these are all in 304 stainless steel.
The spoons and fork are all 12ga.
The knife is 10ga.thick,and VERY sharp.
The notch on the top edge of the knife is for the index finger when cutting meat,or anything else that requires some increase in leverage.

Although... seems like they're down. I have some submissions waiting. Oh well... I imagine it's very busy (maybe even stressful) to run a club-

I like the knife best. Have you considered a simple two-tined fork design? Sorta like a small meat fork. I'm thinking that you could pull off a minimal design with that shape fairly easily.

That is true but I don't like how the two tine design feels in the mouth.I mean it's too easy to stab oneself in the lip...
