Antler Handles with Silver End Caps, well, that about says it all! Beautiful real antler handles and luxurious silver end caps, what more could you ask for? Only high quality shed antlers are used to make the handles on our flatware. The shed antlers used for the handles of this beautiful flatware are carefully chosen for their shape, color and size. The utensil portion of this flatware is forged. In this process the piece is made individually by a molding process. This set of beautiful flatware of is special enough for that special occasion, but capable for everyday use. Set includes dinner fork, salad fork, teaspoon, soupspoon and dinner knife. Our rustic antler and hickory craft pieces are made by world-renowned artists, master wood workers, blacksmiths, jewelers, sculptures, stone (flint) knappers (craftsmen who chisel stone so it breaks into flakes) and basket makers who pride themselves in their workmanship and the quality of the rustic products that they produce. The "Rustic Look" has become a truly popular choice of decorating and we offer shed antler products for every room of the home.
Is forged flatware worth the increased price? We think so. The metal used in flatware is developed into utensils by two different processes. Drop-forged or forged: In this process the piece is made individually by a molding process. Forged or drop-forged flatware is heavier, denser and has smooth rounded edges. Forged is a higher process and generates a safer utensil that resists chips, breaking and contamination. Forged flatware is stainless as well. The forged piece is treated and sealed to stay smooth and untarnished. Look for flatware labeled as 'forged'. Feel the pieces; you will notice the smoother metal. Die-cut or stamped: In this process, flatware pieces are cut or punched from a sheet of lower quality pot-metal and then formed. The process leaves rougher edges that can be sharp. The metal is less pure and will discolor. It is usually not sealed or heat-treated to resist damage from heat, chemicals and daily use. The metal is also pitted and can retain contaminants. Die-cut costs less but is not worth the savings.
