Unless you’re serving traditional Asian food with chopsticks, chances are you need forks, knives, and spoons. So they might as well be stylish, like this Kongo set.Kongo claims a unique place in mid-20th-century Modernism. When the founders of Dansk first traveled to Denmark in the 1950s, they fell in love with an award-winning flatware pattern called Fjord, by young Danish designer Jens Quistgaard. After establishing a partnership with Quistgaard, Dansk changed the teak handles to black nylon, and Fjord became Kongo. Half a century later, Kongo continues to impress consumers with its timeless Scandinavian design.
Complementing Kongo place settings (available separately), this five-piece hostess set consists of an 8-3/4-inch meat fork, 8-3/4-inch serving spoon, 8-3/4-inch slotted serving spoon, 6-5/8-inch rounded butter knife, and 8-5/8-inch sharply pointed steak or cheese knife. The pieces are made of high-quality 18/10 stainless steel with today’s more durable black enamel handles. What aficionado of modernist dinnerware wouldn’t be thrilled to have this flatware? True to the Dansk philosophy that good design should be carefree, Kongo is dishwasher-safe. –Ann Bieri
